518 Sneaker Fest is Upstate New York's Premier Sneaker and Apparel Convention and has hosted six conventions since 2016. 518 Sneaker Fest is a family friendly convention where sneakerheads/enthusiasts buy, sell, and trade footwear and apparel. Run by Will Randel of Amsterdam, NY. 518 Sneaker Fest has been featured in the Times Union, and much more! Since 2016, 518 Sneaker Fest has given back to the Capital Region by donating over 250 pairs of sneakers to the Capital City Rescue Mission. 518 Sneaker Fest's goal is to bring people from all across the east coast together to share their passion for fashion and footwear.
