It’s been a hit in the UK for years now, and at last, Europe’s favourite sneaker festival Crepe City will arrive in Amsterdam. Mark your diaries for July 31, when the festival makes its first Dutch appearance at NDSM Loods, bringing with it a whole host of traders eager to show off the rarest and most-coveted sneakers in the world. It’s a must for anyone with an interest in shoes, and with Crepe City tickets still available from just €12, you won’t need to break the bank to take part.
All the big brands will be represented, with Nikes and Air Jordans at the forefront. You won’t find any ordinary sneakers here though; these crepes are limited editions and specialist designs, making them some of the most in-demand shoes in the world. Whether you’re a die-hard collector looking for an unbelievable find, or a casual fan who’s just looking to rock a fresh pair of kicks for the summer, you’re going to find it here.
Crepe City is about so much more than hunting through mountains of shoes though! Industry insiders will be delivering panel discussions about future trends that any budding fashionista is going to want to know, whilst we’ve also heard rumours of competitions on the day that you’ll want to take part in. Meanwhile, live DJs will be providing a bouncing soundtrack to your quest for your dream sneakers, and there’ll be a load of street food and drinks options on site for when you need to replenish.
So, all you’ve got to do now is grab your tickets, scan your wardrobe to work out which shoes you’ll be targeting, and then come prepared to find the perfect fit!
