SneakerLAH Debuts with a New Home
This year, SneakerLAH moves to its new venue at MITEC (Malaysia International Trade and Exhibition Centre). The anticipated event will take place over the weekend of October 7-8, 2023. The event has significantly expanded since its inception in 2015 at Lot 10 shopping mall. This year, it introduces the Vintage Corner, a dedicated area for vintage clothing enthusiasts. Besides that, ConcertLAH, is a complete music concert featuring local and international artists in a separate hall adjacent to MITEC’s main event space.
A Creative Collaboration with Muntasir Mohamed and an Exciting Lineup with Full-Size Run Hosts at SneakerLAH
This year, SneakerLAH collaborates with the talented Malaysian artist and designer Muntasir Mohamed to create the event’s key art and visual theme. Muntasir, well-known in the scene for designing merchandise for various local and international brands like the Billionaire Boys Club and huge international artists like Drake and Olivia Rodrigo, is lending his creative expertise.
SneakerLAH founder Bryan Chin emphasizes the ongoing commitment to improving the SneakerLAH experience, especially with the move to MITEC. This expansion allows for the introduction of the Vintage Corner and ConcertLAH segments. This is aimed at attracting new audiences while enhancing the event for the existing community.
