Calling all sneakerheads and Chicago Bulls fans. Got Sole, a popular traveling sneaker convention, is an event you don’t want to miss. 

Coming to Rosemont on July 13, Got Sole will feature over 400 shoe vendors, giving the anticipated crowd of over 5,000 attendees the ultimate shoe shopping experience. 

And Chicago Bulls fans are in for a treat. The host of this year’s convention will be five-time NBA champion and former Chicago Bulls defensive star, Dennis Rodman. In his prime, Rodman’s eccentric style and gritty play made him a cultural icon. Now, at 63 years old, Rodman is still a beloved figure in Chicago and around the world. 

The convention will take place on July 13 at Donald E. Stephens Convention Center, located at 5555 N. River Rd., in Rosemont, from 12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. The event features a performance from a special guest, and attendees will be able to participate in giveaways and contests, as well as buy, sell or trade their own shoes. 

In the past, many familiar faces have attended Got Sole conventions: including rappers Meek Mill, Lil Yachty, Da Baby and Sheck Wes, NBA player and sneaker enthusiast PJ Tucker, and current NBA rookie Bronny James. 

Those who would like to attend the convention have the option of either purchasing a general admission ticket for $25, or a VIP ticket for $35. General Admission permits attendees unlimited re-entry, and permission to bring three pairs of sneakers to sell or trade. 

For those who would like early access, a VIP ticket allows attendees early admission at 11:00 a.m. to the convention, or the ability to cut the entry line. VIP guests are also allowed five pairs of sneakers to either sell or trade, as well as unlimited re-entry to the convention. 

Those seeking to be a vendor at Chicago Got Sole can buy a vendor ticket as well. The $250 vendor ticket includes a six foot vendor table, three admission passes, entry with unlimited sneakers and clothing, and unlimited re-entry.
