Crepe City, the leading trainer event in Europe, will be coming back to London on Sunday, November 6, and we’re more than a little bit excited. Having completely sold out the last two times it popped up in our fair city, the event will bring with it more than 100 traders who will be showcasing some of the rarest and most in-demand sneakers in the world. Trainer fiends, now’s your chance to see, feel, and let’s be honest, purchase a fresh set of crepes (or two, or three…)
Located at Box Park Wembley, Europe’s biggest trainer festival will do more than just display these trainers – the venue will have a festival-style vibe, with panels, street food, live DJs and more between 11am and 8pm.
So, what’s the history of Crepe City?
Crepe City was founded by Ronal Raichura right here in London back in 2009 as the first event where people who like sneakers could meet up, socialise and trade in the rarest and most desirable trainers. It has since grown into Europe’s largest pop-up sneaker shop and lifestyle festival, hosted in various cities from Berlin to Birmingham, with thousands of hard-to-find shoes on sale.
In between scouring the stalls for your new set of crepes, you can attend panel discussions featuring well-known faces in the trainer industry, enter competitions ran by Footlocker, and feast on varied street food. There’ll be live performances and a DJ playing throughout the day, plus there’ll be a bar to quench your thirst.
