Street Superior 2019: six reasons to get excited for this year’s celebration of street culture

There was plenty to do, plenty to see, and definitely plenty of things to get excited about. Here are all the highlights of the event in case you missed it.

1. Wall of Supreme

The massive Supreme deck collection is the largest ever to be displayed in Singapore and it featured some rare pieces. These include the bootleg Louis Vuitton design that got Supreme into a bit of trouble before the pair’s official collaboration in 2017.

2. Street Superior “Surprize”

But with S$50,000 worth of prizes up for grabs at this year’s event, there was even more reason to celebrate last weekend. Did you get lucky?

3. Keeping the culture alive

Sneakerheads of all ages came together with the latest heat to buy, sell and trade. If anything, it shows that the culture isn’t lost on the new generation.

4. Parra-monium!

The booths at Street Superior didn’t disappoint, especially this pile of F&F Parra Air Max 1 spotted at the marketplace.

5. Impossible not to eat

It’s all fun and games until you get hungry. Our empty bellies were grateful for the presence of the Goodburger, a food truck startup serving up juicy burgers made from the highly raved plant-based Impossible meat. If you didn’t get to try it, here’s our take: it’s impossible not to love.

6. Customs galore

At the Street Superior Festival, there was definitely no shortage of customs on display. We especially loved this fun showcase by TK Customs.

7. LE Launch Pad

With gashapon machines to score points and lottery-style balloting for sneakers, you won’t get another experience like this again.

8. Frenzy!

Once the Air Jordan van decorated in the “Fearless” colorway was in sight, the crowd situation snowballed right outside the marketplace and festival village. For the lucky winners, it was one for the memory books with a once-in-a-lifetime experience of purchasing straight from an Air Jordan van.

9. Sneaker treats

There are limited edition sneakers, and then there are limited edition sneaker-inspired baked goods. Sneakerheads with a sweet tooth flocked to @missvandough for her delectable brownies, cookies, brookies, nutella cookie cups and more. The confections sold out really quickly though – were you one of the lucky ones who got to try the treats?

10. A toy story

If you were hoping for a bit of luck to close out 2019, Singapore’s premier sneaker boutique was ready to give it all. Attendees kept their eyes on the clock to find out if they were the winners in Limited Edt’s hourly lucky draw. If you weren’t one of these lucky winners, don’t fret. There will always be the next Street Superior Festival to look forward to.
