Recap: Crepe City 10 Sneaker Festival (the event)

Recap Crepe City 10 Event The Daily Street 021

Saturday saw the UK (and Europe’s) sneaker scene descent onto East London for the 10th Crepe City. Here’s a look at what went down.

As Crepe City continues to grow, it’s great to see the event develop both in size, variation of product on offer and the overall aesthetic of the event space and the stalls within it. Each time I attend a Crepe City I find myself marvelling at both the progression since the last event and the scale of the crowd in attendance. Once again the infamous Crepe City queue was in full swing, snaking it’s way in a seemingly never-ending manor, however it doesn’t seem to put people off which is good.

Once inside you were greeted with what could easily be presumed to be a secret underworld or black market specifically for footwear. It’s like something out of Harry Potter, but selling sneakers, collectable and clothing rather than wands and magic sweets. Rows and rows of sneakers adorned both tables and shop-like wall displays, while a few sneaker related brands and artists had also set up shop at the event including Ropes Laces, Jason Markk, Stance Socks, One by One and Careaux to name a few.

It’s always interesting to head to Crepe City, to see what’s on offer, drool over grails and see what’s on people’s feet. Be sure to check out the 2nd part of our recap where we focus purely on the sneakers.
