Crepe City - No, it's not a pancake-based urban metropolis - it's the biggest and best sneaker event you'll ever go to...
In case you’re wondering, I reckon about 70% of the people I’ve met in Manchester make their first impressions on what people are wearing on their feet. I do it myself; if I see someone wearing a pair of nice adidas Superstar I’ll be much more inclined to chat to them than some chump wearing a pair of Lonsdale slip-ons from Sports Direct.
What I’m trying to say is: trainers are important. Luckily, the guys behind Crepe City understand this, and are stepping up to provide Manchester with the BIGGEST trainer event in Europe.
If you’re daydreaming about a better collection, or just want to dribble over limited editions that you’ve only seen in pictures before, Crepe City will bring you the world’s largest market of exclusive and rare sneaks you’re ever likely to find.
August 2021 sees Crepe City head to Manchester’s Bowler’s Exhibition Centre in Manchester (which has a floor space of 2,960m2, so it’s set to be MASSIVE).
Of course, not every inch of that will be just shoes. The event will include panel discussions, competitions, live DJs and performers, food stalls, a sneaker-cleaning service and a bar sponsored by Manchester-based spirits brand Rockstar Spirits – everything you could ask for and then some.
