Sneaker enthusiasts of the North rejoice as Laces Out! trainer festival returns to Liverpool this weekend, on Saturday 24th March.

Laces Out! was founded in 2014 and has since grown to become the biggest UK sneaker festival outside of London.

A celebration of the sneaker community, this one-day event brings together thousands of collectors and traders with pairs of vintage, rare, boxfresh and deadstock trainers to buy, sell, swap or simply covet.

It’s the only major event of its kind in the North of England, a place renowned for its deep-rooted affiliation with the casual sportswear movement.
