Summer is finally coming, and it’s almost time to shed the winter coats and rock some stylish sunny weather fits. From the top of your head to the soles of your feet, it’s the perfect opportunity to showcase your style – and speaking of the latter, a new festival is coming to Amsterdam that’ll showcase the most coveted sneakers in the world. Crepe City has been a massive hit in the UK, bringing together sneakerheads and the most in-demand sneakers (or ‘crepes’, hence the festival name!) for a few years now. And in 2022, it’s finally Amsterdam’s turn to take part!
Whether it’s one, or two, or seven more pairs you’re after, the best spot to get ’em is undoubtedly Crepe City. The festival is taking over NDSM Loods on July 31, with an event that’ll be stuffed full of traders, panel discussions, and competitions – not to mention hundreds of the rarest trainers in the world! Anyone with an interest in the latest trends needs to plan a visit here, because industry insiders will also be giving attendees the heads up about where the next trend is coming from.
Since the festival’s foundation in 2009, Crepe City has grown from humble origins to become the largest pop-up sneaker shop and lifestyle festival in the UK. With a cult following behind them, it’s about time it came to Amsterdam for the first time, so we’re pretty excited to dive into the mountains of shoes on offer here. From big brands such as Nike and Air Jordans, to rarer sneakers valued highly by collectors, you’re sure to find the perfect fit here – and with tickets available from €12, it’s a great value day out.
Your Crepe City experience will be soundtracked by live DJs, and if you’d like to take a break from your quest to find the perfect crepes, there’ll be a bar and array of street food options on site to fuel you up for your next trip around the stalls! Ready to trade in those beat-up old shoes for a fresh pair of kicks?
