Laces Out! is back at the ACC Exhibition Centre this autumn.
Now regarded as one of Europe’s biggest celebrations of sneaker culture in Europe, the event offers a bigger and better immersive experience for attendees from all over the UK and beyond.
After debuting at the new site back in June, the 2nd instalment of 2023 will amp the sense of occasion even further, with founder Rob May having found the perfect location to scale up his independent trainer festival. The ACC offers a huge space which enables Laces Out! to accommodate more guests – thousands are expected to attend – whilst showcasing traders and sneaker brands ranging from limited productions to feted one-offs all under one roof.
Rob May explains:
We’re very happy with our new home at the ACC and after the success of June’s edition Saturday 25th November is going expand further on the Laces Out! story. It’s brilliant to see the community continue to build around the festival and how guests come from all over the UK to trade, chat and be immersed in sneaker culture. As one of the longest running and largest trainer festivals in Europe, having so many like-minded people together is what this is all about for me and to help continue the boom in trainer lore which continues to grow globally. And in parallel to this, our wider programme includes guest speakers, music and culture with some very special guests as part of celebrating trainers in all their forms.”
On Saturday 25th November, sneakerheads will find an unparalleled selection of rare and exclusive trainers, limited editions and sought-after collaborations. And with a greatly expanded trader lineup, Laces Out! attendees will have an incredible opportunity to explore this vast array of footwear options and connect with fellow enthusiasts from around the world who converge on Liverpool for this special day.
The event promises much more than just sneaker shopping, with fascinating insights and invaluable knowledge available from industry insiders and experts. The day will feature live music performances, guest appearances, panel discussions and exciting giveaways.
The ACC Exhibition Centre, situated in the vibrant Kings Dock area of Liverpool, provides spacious halls, state-of-the-art facilities and a convenient location ideal for attendees, traders, and exhibitors alike. Laces Out! has established itself as a premier event in the sneaker community, attracting thousands of enthusiasts year after year. Making the ACC the new home for Laces Out! represents an exciting new period for the festival ahead of its 10th anniversary next year.
