The rarest trainers in the world will be up for grabs under one roof at Crepe City sneaker festival.
Crepe City, the leading trainer event in Europe, will return to Manchester’s Brickworks, just off St Ann’s Square, on Saturday (May 4). Bringing with it more than 150 traders who will be showcasing some of the rarest and most in-demand sneakers in the world.
Crepe City was founded by Ronal Raichura in London back in 2009 as the first event where people who like sneakers could meet up, socialise and trade in the rarest and most desirable trainers. Now in its tenth year, it has grown into Europe’s largest pop-up sneaker shop and lifestyle festival with thousands of hard to find shoes on sale.
And this year two thousand people are expected to attend the event, which will have a bar, bespoke trainer cleaning service and dedicated chill-out area with footwear panel discussions. As well as competitions, trainer auctions and film screenings and a soundtrack provided by Manchester-based DJ collective TRPHSE.
Note: Organisers suggest bringing cash as, although some sellers will accept card and PayPal, some will only take cash and it will be difficult to leave the venue to find a cash machine.
