Recap: Crepe City 12 Sneaker Festival

Crepe City 12 London 2014 Recap The Daily Street 03

Saturday saw the UK’s sneaker scene descend on East London once again for the 5th anniversary of Crepe City, the UK’s favourite sneaker festival. Here’s how it went down…

In all honesty, the selection of sneakers wasn’t too dissimilar to Crepe City 11. Thankfully, the Huarache craze seems to be slowing down and returning to normality, which was one thing we noticed quite quickly. As always, the event itself has stepped up a gear, with the Crepe City folks refining what they do every event. It was interesting to see a few new “accessory” brands crop up this for this event, producing non-sneaker products that relate to the sneaker market, mainly sneaker shape or inspired candles. That seems to be the new big thing, along with a giant shoe box that stores 6 pairs of sneakers (bit impractical and very expensive if you ask me).

Alongside the usual sneaker perving, buying and swapping, Crepe City 12 saw an added focus on clothing brands, welcoming a few new brands such as Note Apparel and Dark Circle Clothing to the mix. As well as the clothing brands, the much loved Ropes Laces were in attendance as usual, swarmed by buyers with an added hunger thanks to the 5th anniversary Crepe City collaborations being sold at the event.

All-in-all, it was another step forward for the Crepe City family and gave us good reason to be excited for how they will develop throughout 2015.
