LACES OUT! Trainer Festival is back with its 9th festival since it began back in 2014. This year’s event will be debuting at Hinterlands and the guys have some big surprises in store. Hinterlands has proved to be one of the city’s most attractive event spaces; giving promotors the opportunity to stamp their individual ideas onto the space and create a vision and experience tailored to their audience. This makes it the ideal venue for LACES OUT! festival and promises to be the biggest and best one to date.
The popular trainer festival will take place on Saturday 24th November and will attract sneaker lovers from across the world to dig through thousands of rare, vintage and dead stock trainers brought along by the huge number of independent traders, brands and collectors. There are also some massive giveaways via raffles and arcade games that will see the event organisers give away ‘adidas YEEZY’s’, ‘Nike React Element 87s’ and many more.
Alongside the market place, LACES OUT! will bring its much loved panel talks, historically filled with famous “sneakerheads” and key industry figures sharing their knowledge and wisdom. This season will see a few special guest appearances TBA.
The event also includes a screening of the UK’s first feature length documentary on UK trainer culture, Sole Seekers. This will be followed by a panel talk featuring the film maker himself Emil, Mubi from Sneakers n Stuff, Tom Henshaw from New Balance, and others TBA, hosted by rap artist Burgundy Blood.
So, if you love trainers, sneaker culture or are just interested in hearing more about the industry this is the festival for you. It’s a great opportunity to meet like-minded people in the city, network, collaborate or just to buy that rare pair of trainers you can show off to your friends.
LACES OUT! 24th November and opens its doors at 12:00pm and closes at 5:00pm. Tickets are available HERE.
