SneakerFest 2022 at Glorietta Activity Center

When you put “new” and “retro” together, you get “newtro.” This is the street style that’s been hyping sneakerheads all around the world. It is a merging of old and new, of timeless and timely. Old school gems meet new school trends. It’s a showcase of two eras coming together—from the 80s to the current decade—to create a culture that’s enduring and iconic.

Glorietta brings newtro to the forefront at its first-ever SneakerFest. Anyone including sneakerheads and non-sneakerheads can shop for great pairs at awesome deals, join challenges to win exciting prizes, channel their inner artist, skate at Vans’ mini indoor skate park, groove to the hippest beats, and join sneaker talks featuring renowned personalities to uncover the latest trends and the future of footwear.
