The Best Sneakers from the Jason Markk Presents Sneaker Freaker Swap Meet
Ripples from the wake of our 2017 swap meet are still being felt by many a wallet, but on the day it was the on-feet selection making the biggest waves. A mass of sneaker cognoscenti packed out the Globe warehouse (thanks again for hooking up the space!) and the opportunity to stunt was seized by everyone with the necessary artillery*.
The year’s biggest colabs made tracks from booth to booth; KAWS 4s, Off-White Nikes, Mars Yard 2.0s and the likes drew eyes from near and far, often from the high-schoolers calculating how many Maccas cheques it’d take to foot the resale bill. Heaters from yesteryear were dug out too. Acronym colabs zipped through the throng, there were Yeezys old in the tooth, and, of course, no SF swap meet is complete without an appearance from the Provider 1500s or ‘Hyper Blue’ TNs.
Cheers to the Jason Markk team for keeping beer-spillage woes at bay, and thanks to everyone who came along and made the event such a success — we’ll see you all again next year when your pockets have recovered!
*Wearing Hu NMDs on one foot and Yeezys on the other is never ‘necessary’, but we can appreciate the effort.
