Sunday saw the fifth instalment of Crepe City; an event established as the UK's biggest sneaker festival and swap meet.
With over 20 stalls offering a mixture of deadstock footwear and apparel, drawing in collectors and fanatics alike from all over the country, we knew it was always going to be a great day.
After attending Sneaker Scoundrels in July, our next step was to attend Crepe City; a phrase familiar to every sneaker collector in the UK (and beyond). Taking place at Bar Music Hall in London, the venue allowed for over twenty collectors and brands to showcase their pride and joy with every table having something different to offer.
It was great to meet others in attendance from lifetime collectors, to designers and bloggers. With so many stalls, there was something for everyone whether you were after a pair of New Blood's, or some unworn Tiffany SB's.
The atmosphere was chilled with no egos or sense of arrogance. Everyone seemed more than happy to talk you through their collections. A highlight of the day was getting introduced to MGZ (pronounced Magz) who creates fantastic works of art based on popular trainers, after only six weeks in the game. The Jordan IV (left) was recently displayed in Foot Patrol's window, tying in with the release.
The venue worked perfectly; offering live music, food and drinks allowing for people to relax over the course of the day without the feeling of being rushed around or having to leave for refreshments. Although the weather was terrible, it didn't dampen spirits at all with attendees still drawing for their best kicks.
It was great to catch up with some people we hadn't seen in a while especially James (S/S) who informed us of his exciting plans for the future. I'd just like to thank Colin for the hook up, and a big thanks Ron and the organisers who put a lot of time and effort into creating an event of this size for the UK. It was a credit to the sneaker community, showing that we have something to brag about over here.
