For those of you in the NYC area, Sneaker Con takes place on Saturday.

Hosted by adidas Originals, the three stripes will be launching its new LQC shoe concept at the event.

adidas breaks down the concept down:

“The ‘LQC,’ meaning Light Quality Comfort will offer a new take on heritage classics like the EQT. Combining a top grade suede upper with perforated patent leather the quality and details in construction make this shoe a great example of what’s to come from the LQC concepts dropping throughout 2011. The LQC Basketball shoe will be available with lead partner Dr. Jays beginning March 23.”


For buy/sell/trade sneaker action, check out Sneaker Con on Saturday at 151 Sullivan St. in NYC. Admission is $12.
