It’s that time of year again when all the various trainer tribes make the annual pilgrimage to Liverpool to come together and celebrate all things footwear related at Laces Out! festival. This unique one-day event that’s been running since 2014 sees thousands of collectors and traders with pairs of vintage, rare, boxfresh and deadstock trainers to buy, sell, swap or just get involved in a bit of trainer mania!
Laces Out! have revealed they will be showcasing over 50 rare pieces from prolific adidas collector Bobby McCarten’s personal archive at the festival. Whilst main sponsors Scotts Menswear will be displaying their impressive adidas Classics and Nike footwear ranges, as well as running a competition that gives you the chance to win a £500 voucher to spend with them.
There will also be special guest talks with Edson Sabajo from Patta and Matty Welty from Complex, as well as appearances from other high profile attendees. The venue is Hinterlands on Mann Street, new this year to the blossoming Cains Brewery Village with proceedings kicking off from 12pm until 17:30pm. Tickets are available to purchase online.
