Car Boot Sale: The Wheel Deal

Recap: Last Friday, SG Syndikicks organized its first ever car boot sale. Here’s what went down.

On August 16th, local sneaker collective SG Syndikicks organized a car boot sale that pulled in a crowd of about 100 people showing up in their hottest gear.

No, we’re not talking about the cars – we spotted among the crowd a pair of Nike Air Yeezy 1, a pair of Nike LeBron 8 South Beach Miami, and a pair of Ronnie Fieg x ASICS Gel-Lyte III “Salmon Toe”, among others.

The sale commenced at 7pm, with everyone displaying their wares on their cars. People shopped around, negotiated, talked and laughed. It was a great way for the community to get together; to discuss and debate what’s hot and what’s not deep into Friday night.

By the time the sale wrapped up, not everyone walked away with a new pair of sneakers, but everyone walked away knowing they were part of the first ever sneaker car boot sale in Singapore.
