The world’s first “stock market” for high-demand consumer items such as trainers, streetwear, handbags and watches is hosting a huge party for “sneakerheads” to celebrate its launch in the UK and Europe.

StockX will be celebrating the history of trainer culture in Britain, with fanatics from around the world coming together to showcase rare sneakers – and examine the re-sale market in the UK which is already estimated to be worth an astounding £200 million a year.

The website and app use a live platform to connect buyers and sellers and allow them to track real-time prices for some the most desirable footwear, streetwear, watches and bags.
