SneakerLAH 2023 collabs with Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5 | Z Fold5 at MITEC on 7-8 October

SneakerLAH is returning with its seventh edition in collaboration with Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5 | Z Fold5. SneakerLAH acts as a one-stop convention for fans to explore, discover, buy, sell, trade and share the passion of anything and everything sneaker and streetwear related. 

Collaborating with Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5 | Z Fold5, SneakerLAH aims to elevate sneakerheads’ experiences with its innovative technology. This exciting collaboration will allow attendees to capture and flex their kicks and fits in great resolution. 

This year, SneakerLAH will be located at MITEC (Malaysia International Trade and Exhibition Centre) and will be happening on the weekend of 7-8 October 2023. The event has grown considerably since the very first edition at the Lot 10 shopping mall in 2015, and this year also sees an expansion of the SneakerLAH experience with the addition of the Vintage Corner, a dedicated space for vintage clothing enthusiasts; and ConcertLAH, a fully-fledged concert featuring local and international musical acts which will be held in a separate hall next to the main event hall at MITEC.  

This year sees SneakerLAH collaborating with talented Malaysian artist and designer Muntasir Mohamed on the event’s key art and visual theme. Muntasir is well known in the scene for having designed merchandise for various local and international brands like Against Lab and Billionaire Boys Club, as well as huge international artists like Drake, Nas, and Olivia Rodrigo. 

“Each year we strive to improve the SneakerLAH experience – with our new home at MITEC, we have a lot of room for growth which is why we are introducing the Vintage Corner and ConcertLAH segments this year. We hope to attract new audiences while making SneakerLAH bigger and better for our existing community,” says SneakerLAH founder Bryan Chin. 

This year, special guests Brendan Dunne and Matt Welty return to SneakerLAH after their last appearance at the event in 2019. This time they are joined by their co-host Trinidad James, completing the full lineup of hosts from Complex’s popular weekly talk show about sneakers and style, Full Size Run. The trio will be making appearances on both days of the event with Trinidad James also performing as a special guest at ConcertLAH. 

Another notable attraction is the Patta World Tour, featuring a documentary screening of Patta For Life and appearances by Patta founder Edson Sabajo. Patta is an iconic Dutch streetwear brand, boasting collaborations with some of the biggest names in sportswear, music, fashion, and the arts. The brand has grown a diverse cult following among sneaker freaks, music aficionados, fashion trendsetters and culturally-minded individuals, and fans can look forward to the Patta Experience at SneakerLAH this year.
