Crepe City Summer 2017 Recap

I visited London last weekend to visit latest Crepe City Edition which took place as usual in the Old Truman Brewery last Saturday, July 29th.
This was my 3rd time visiting the Event in London and once again I had a wonderful time and I hope to see all of you guys soon.
For those who missed out the Event last weekend, here’s an extended recap of Crepe City Summer 2017. Enjoy and feel free to share the pictures.

People from all over the UK assembled this past Saturday at the Old Truman Brewery in London to buy, sell and trade at one of the biggest sneaker events of Europe.
A good amount of private sellers had their tables ready on Saturday at the second edition of Crepe City this year, were we could spot some of the nicest and rarest runners, but also brands like Mitchell & Ness and Jason Mark were represented.
Unfortunately the event caught the bad british weather last weekend, but still people seemed to be enjoying themselves and having fun .

The CC Crew impressed me once again with a nice event and as always the . For this occasion the Event was even better than the one I’ve been before. Again the UK lads did a great job with their capsule collection, which was presented in the previous days of the event on their social media and is now available on their website aswell.
Once more last Saturday wasn’t different that the events before, just a bunch of cool people meeting up, having a talk about their passion and enjoying themselves and creating a great atmosphere. What else can you wish for?

As usual in the latest events, they were mainly overpriced Yeezy and Air Max 1 for sale.
I actually saw a few nice pairs I would have loved to grab but I wasn’t lucky with the sizing. The ones which stood out for me were the ASICS Gel Saga x Atmos x Lily Brown and both pairs of the ASICS Gel Lyte III x Ronnie Fieg “ECP Pack”.
Again we have the case of overpriced runners being put for sale at the event and the sellers complaining about not selling, even though the main reason is just their prices. Furthermore there were lots of young kids around wearing some really expensive Supreme stuff and looking for hyped things like Boost or recent Nike releases, but a part from that I have to admit I had a great time and I’ll be visiting CC soon again.

As always you could spot a couple of nice ASICS Tiger shapes around the event. Take a look at some of the nicest pairs I saw on feet during Crepe City…

Crepe City, ASICS Tiger UK and myself teamed up for a little History of Tiger Stripes exhbition, celebrating the #31daysofvintage that I’ve been doing over July on Kevsics.
We were suppossed to be showcasing more than 5o pairs of Vintage, but unfortunately half of the pairs remaind stuck in customs and wasn’t released till the beggining of this week. Thanks to the british customs for that one 😉
To our luck we still pulled off a pretty nice exhibition, which people seemed to have enjoyed based on the visitors reaction. I want to thank the buddys Glenn, Morgan and Javi for helping out with some of the pairs and allowing me to showcase them last weekend! Big up!
I’ll be doing a specific recap of the exhibition this upcoming Sunday, so stay tuned for more pictures and videos of my History of Tiger Stripes exhibiton.
Here’s a little preview to get you excited for what’s coming up…

Once again I had a incredible time at the Event, I was happy to catch up with some fellas I hadn’t seen in a while and of course meet a lot of people with the same love for ASICS.
Thanks to the whole Crepe City Crew for having me on Saturday, especially to Ron and Jenna from ASICS Tiger UK for this wonderful experience, that I’ve enjoyed a lot!

A very special thank you goes out to my Brothers Javi aka @jotaese27 and Wil aka @smileymalone for the hospitality, a big part of the above photography and for helping out with the whole preparation of the display, you guys rocked it! Big up!
