“One more pair won’t hurt, right?” said every sneaker lover, ever. Well, whether it’s one, or two, or three more pairs you’re after, the best spot to get ’em is undoubtedly Crepe City. The huge sneaker festival will be taking over Box Park Wembley on May 8, with more than 100 trainer traders, panels and competitions to showcase some of the rarest and most in-demand trainers from around the world.
Live DJs will pump music throughout the venue, providing an upbeat soundtrack to the event. There’ll also be a bar and a plethora of satisfying street food to fuel you up as you scour the stalls for your next set of fresh crepes.
Crepe City has popped up in various cities around the UK since its conception right here in London back in 2009. Thirteen years ago, it was a humble event where those who love trainers could meet up, socialise and trade rare pairs; now, it is the largest pop-up sneaker shop and lifestyle festival on the continent, boasting thousands of hard-to-find trainers available for purchase.
Once you’ve made your purchases, or in between browsing, be sure to check out some of the panel discussions on the day. They’ll feature some well-known faces in the industry, and provide valuable insights to upcoming trends.
