Well, here we are! After a long 980 days (since 29th of June 2019), we finally made it back to Melbourne to host the next leg of the “It’s More Than Just Sneakers” lifestyle event tour.

After the endless lockdowns in Melbourne, it was good to be back to normal programming and catching up with old sneakerheads and making new friends. The Melbourne community came out in full force coming through the doors of St Kilda PCYC to show amazing support to one event they had long been waiting for.

As we did in Sydney, the first groups of people through the door were treated to some giveaways from our sponsors, that included Crep Protect Sport & Comfort Insoles, Stance Socks, Stance Face Masks and many more.

While the venue was smaller than our Sydney one, we made do with the space. We had a total of 35 vendors ranging from clothing, sneakers and pop culture not only from Melbourne but from interstate as well. We cannot thank those that made the trek down to Melbourne enough for their support.

Monster Energy dropped by and setup an activation at the centre of the venue to giveaway all flavours of Monster Energy drinks.

Once again, we want to thank our amazing sponsors for their continued support in the event which is growing year by year. Here is the list below, be sure to give them a follow:
