Project 4000 – KEEPING IT A MILLI IN THE 4000

Brisbane Swap & Cop 2010 – Event Recap by Taz


This past weekend Bleeding Heart Gallery was raided by sneaker heads, artists, collectors, and all round hustlers for the latest edition of the Brisbane Swap & Cop. A day filled with rare gems, exclusive looks, public debuts, bargains, competitions and giveaways, the 4000 turned the damn thing out.

– P4,

There were first time exclusive looks at 2011 offerings from all the big brands including New Balance, Adidas Skateboarding, Asics, Reebok, Supra, DC Shoes and Nike. Brisbane Swap & Cop also saw the world debut of Sneaker Freaker Issue 19, what looks to be the best issue this year. Laced Brisbane held the final round of the Adidas “If The Shoe Fits” competition and the crowd went bananas for some free kicks.

We had the first Australian appearance of the hand made sneaker brand Veam straight outta France. The highly contested Design A 574 Competition came to its conclusion as finalist were announced judged by ourselves and the head of New Balance Lifestyle Australia, ten finalist were up for public vote to decide the ultimate winners.

Its hard to write something eloquent about such a mad rush day, but it was our best Swap & Cop to date and  everyone had damn good time, we had a lot going on, and we are already planning on another one this coming summer so stay tuned for more!
