Crepe City 15

A couple of weeks have passed since the fifteenth instalment of Crepe City, and as always the Crepe City team absolutely killed the event. This was my eighth Crepe City event and all eight have been located at the Truman Brewery which is just off Brick Lane in London’s Shoreditch.

London Weekend

By now, I’ve spent so much time in London over the last few years, it almost feels like a bit of a second home. I never tire of visiting, whether it’s for a sneaker event, or for a weekend away with Emma. This was my third trip of the year to London so far (not much in reality but it’s more than anywhere else I’ve been this year), and we were mainly going down so Emma could fulfil her little obsession with this above average singer named Adele, but we figured we’d make a weekend out of it.

Trainer events have taken the world by storm in recent years, and finally, August 2015 will see Scotland hosting it’s very first event – SoleBloc.

If you’re into trainers, chances are you’ll know about Hanon Shop, and on Saturday, August 1st 2015 they will be holding a lottery for three of their favourite collaborations at the SoleBloc trainer festival in Glasgow.

The guidelines are as follows:-

WOMFT – Seaton Park Strolls with Jordan

I had some time to kill on Friday, and the weather was pretty great, so I met up with Jordan and headed down to a park near me for some shots. He brought along a couple pairs of Adidas, one being the Ardwick x Oi Polloi (box and all – weird), and the other being the Centaur x hanon shop.

Aberdeen Roaming

On Friday afternoon, myself and Jordan (@jordanmb1994) went out and explored a couple of spots in Aberdeen; the first was Fittie, a small area of houses located at the harbour, and the second was the Brig o’ Balgownie, another small area of houses but this time located on the River Don.

hanon shop x Reebok GL6000 ‘3 Castles’ – In-store Release

DSC_0791

DSC_0793

The collaborations have been coming thick and fast all year, and with the year coming to a close, they don’t seem to be slowing down at all. A month on from hanon shop in Aberdeen’s last collaboration comes the second instalment of the ‘3 Castles’, and their third collaboration with Reebok.

I posted all the information surrounding the shoe itself on a previous post when the release was first announced, but in case you missed it, check it out below:

“If you’re not familiar with Aberdeen’s coat of arms by now, then both the leopards and castles depicted go back to the times of Robert The Bruce, and are commonly associated with the city, featuring on plaques, historic buildings, statues and railings or adorned to lamp posts and gates. To illustrate the castle and hills they were once situated on, the ‘3 Castles’ edition of the GL6000 is a simple execution of rich pig suede in shades of mole grey with tonal rugged suede overlays. An old-school sun burst perf is called out on the vamp whilst a granite grey leopard print collar lining completes the shoe. Attention to detail and a nod to the official colours of Aberdeen is represented on the red woven tongue label and heel counter.

Additionally the hanon shop flame logo appears embossed on the left heel whilst the Reebok Certified logo appears on the right. Each pair will come complete with three lace sets – one tonal, one white and one red.”

There’s little worse than queuing for hours upon end, thrown in the month of December and the city of Aberdeen, and we have ourselves a bit of a hellish morning. As expected, not even a bit of cold and rain can deter all those who turned out for the release with jackets, jumpers, gloves and hats a plenty, braving the near zero temperatures.

The GL6000 was extremely well received, apart from the biggest talking point of the day which just happened to be the sizing, with the majority of punters going at least a full size down, if not more. I bottled the ideal of a full size down since my feet are already small enough, wearing a UK 6 risked some unpleasant comments from my better half!

Along with the Reebok, there was also the highly anticipated Adidas EQT collaborations with both Highs and Lows of Australia, and Solebox of Berlin, which flew out the door. Two extremely well executed shoes and some of the best make-ups that the Adidas EQT range has had to offer all year.

Anyway, be sure to check out some shots below, with most of them being taken by the good sir Adeel Mian, and let’s hope that’s one of the last queues for the year, but at least the snow stayed away… for now!
