Melbourne sneakerheads, get ready to geek out over some of the rarest sneakers, streetwear pieces and apparel on the market — because Australia's largest sneaker convention, Sneakerland, is coming to town. The event creates a huge space for all collectors, resellers, content creators and creatives, plus anyone who just loves sneakers. If you can't get enough kicks, you'll want to be there.

On Saturday, November 19, the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre will be filled with over 3000 sneakers from different 52 vendors. Expect rare footwear including Jordan 1 OG Chicago (1985), Nike SB Dunk Low Paris and Nike Air Yeezy Red October. These shoes are ridiculously expensive, but we know some folks are willing to drop big bucks for the right pair.

Expect hardcore sneaker lovers to be at Sneakerland, obviously. Come ready to fight over incredibly exclusive shoes and apparel. But this event isn't only for cashed up collectors. First off, there are stacks of more affordable sneakers available from both local and international sellers. And, the sneaker museum will be a huge drawcard — no matter your budget.

Sneakerland will also feature a heap of entertainment, setting the vibe as you peruse — and maybe purchase — all that footwear. So, as well as live sneaker auctions, plus exclusive sneaker and streetwear drops, attendees will be able to get around some basketball competitions, try to win raffles and prizes, hit up the tattoo station and listen DJs. Guest appearances from local celebrities and sporting icons have also been promised, although further details haven't been revealed as yet.

While general tickets cost $40, if you nab a VIP ticket for $100, you're in for some extra swag. You'll score early access to the event, food and drinks, and a private lounge to relax in. There'll also be special live auctions featuring the most sought-after items — so if you're looking to beat all others on the trading floor, this is likely for you.

Sneakerland takes place on Saturday, November 19, the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre. For more information, head to the event's website — with tickets on sale via Ticketmaster.
