News: Approved Sneakers Market 2nd Edition

On the 29th of March the second edition of Approved Sneakers Market will be held!
ASM This event is for all people who love sneakers, lifestyle and fashion. No matter if you are a hardcore collector or just curious, everybody fits in. It’s a meeting point for everyone to share their passion. 

Dozens of national and international sellers and collectors are showing and selling their best sneakers. Sneaker lovers can satisfy their craving while walking around the market with thousands of sneakers in every price range. Especially when you are
looking for exclusive hardtofind and musthave sneakers.


With this mindset Approved Sneakers organized its first event on September 29th, 2014. This day exceeded all expections. The Netherlands, was missing a dedicated sneakers en lifestyle event; a platform to bring the sneaker community together.

Customizers Area
Part of the sneaker culture is without a doubt; sneaker art.
The special customizers area invites a number of national- and international sneaker artists who will show their best art as well as work on ongoing projects during the event. Each artist has a special pair made which will be auctioned through social media and can be picked up on site.

Sneaker bring-in service
This service is again present at ASM2. Bring a maximum of 2 pairs per person to the special desk. For a small amount we will sell them for you.

Trading Area
Would like to do your own buy|sell|trade? It’s possible in our trading area. Here private sellers and collectors can buy, sell and trade with each other in a relaxed atmosphere. This will be THE hangout spot. Take along a maximum of 4 pairs with you and buy|sell|trade.

Although it seems like the sneakerculture is dominated by men, women are definitely present! Especially for ASM2 we have created a WMNS area where national- and international female sneakercollectors will exhibit in the Wall of Fame. We have great
female sneakers for sale and some nice streetwear can be picked upon the way. You can even get some nail art done. This all accompanied by some nice tunes of a selection of the finest dj’s. Free entrance in the Cafe Roest; so bring your friends and hop by.

Kids Area
For the little ones we have a dedicated area where we have some great actitivites lined up. Not only you can browse the market, but also let your kids get in touch with the sneakerscene already.

Bring in your beater
Besides these areas we have setup a structural programme for the collection of old sneakers. Simply bring in your old sneakers to the special desk at ASM and we make sure they will end up in good hands. Do not throw away your beater, we make sure it gets a new home.
