The wait is over, well kind of. Crepe City returns on July 9 at NDSM Loods, but the wait is now over and you can get some last minute tickets here – or if you’ve been organised, you might even already have your tickets. You may just be expecting the event to be a repeat of last year, but that wouldn’t be very interesting would it? This year StockX presents Crepe City and will run from 11am-6pm, and there’s plenty in store for you. Yes, you will of course find the rarest sneakers on the market available to purchase – but Crepe City is about much more than just the trainers.
What’s so special about Crepe City anyway?
Well, what makes it special is its journey from being a small gathering in London for sneakerheads to the biggest sneaker festival in Europe. The event has run in Berlin, Glasgow, Manchester, and of course right here in Amsterdam as well as its birthplace London. If you go to Crepe City in 2023 however, things look a little different to the original gathering back in 2009. It is still a celebration of sneaker culture, now it just brings along the best stockists and resellers in the country as well as a festival experience. If trainers aren’t your thing, don’t worry – you’ll also find clothing from luxury brands as well as streetwear classics.
On top of all this, we can’t forget the festival aspect of Crepe City. The soundtrack to the day will come courtesy of some of the best DJs in the city who will be spinning bangers all day long. On top of this, you’ll have hosts entertaining you across the day as well as panels and giveaways. If you need sneaker care, Crep Protect is on hand with everything you need to keep them looking fresh. On top of this, if you want to make sure your purchases are genuine, the StockX authentication team will be on-site to verify any shoes for you.
