You knew this one was coming so we thought we’d get it out of the way first. Trainers are the bread and butter of Crepe City and that’s not about to change any time soon. If there’s a pair of trainers you’ve eyed up in the past and you didn’t get, chances are you’ll find them at Crepe City.

With plenty of the UK’s top sneaker vendors on board, you’ll even be able to shop around a bit – and maybe, just maybe, bargain yourself that coveted pair for a steal of a price.
2. The vibes
The trainers might be what bring you in but the vibes are what will make you stay. With live DJs, panel talks and delicious street food – you don’t even need to shop to have a good time at Crepe City. Shopping can definitely get a bit monotonous, but not at Crepe City.

Especially when you’re getting unparalleled access to some of the rarest and difficult to acquire trainers ever to be released.
3. Instant access to exactly the trainers you want
When did getting a pair of trainers get so complicated? Now there’s raffles, dedicated apps, and the wild west that is the online reselling market. That’s not even mentioning the mega queues on the rare occasion if the shoes are released directly in-store. Skip all of that faff at Crepe City and get back to basics. If you see trainers you like on display by a seller, you can buy them straight away. No virtual queues for the chance to maybe get the pair you’re after, no chance of delivery drivers misplacing your parcel, just peace of mind and a fresh pair of kicks to add to the collection.
4. You can also update your wardrobe
Look we get it, trainers are of course amazing, but sometimes there’s just a lot to know when it comes to them. It can be overwhelming if you’re new to the space. Clothes on the other hand can often be a little simpler to navigate because they’re constantly around us. So yes it might be called Crepe City, but the days of it just being about trainers are long gone. You can now find all kinds of gems from luxury brand names to streetwear staples when you head down. So update your wardrobe with more than just a pair of trainers, who knows you might even find some nostalgia inducing vintage bits spotted around.
5. It’s only here for one day
Taking place on March 19, almost exactly a year on from its last visit to Manchester, Crepe City is making its short but sweet return. We wish that it could go on for longer than a day but that’s just the way the cookie crumbles. So don’t miss out on getting your tickets to Crepe City now, or you could end up waiting a whole year for another chance like this. If you’re a sneakerhead, it’d be a real travesty to miss this one.
