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.
Foot Locker hosted their #hottestmonth event where people from across Europe and further afield attended the event to check out some upcoming products which would be in Foot Locker stores in the very near future.
My first trip of the year always seems to be to London, and it always seems to be near the start of January, but anyway, I’m not complaining, I just wish I could have spent longer there but work commitments got in the way.
There were two things on the agenda for this short trip to London. First was some filming for an event which I will be at next Thursday, and the second was to attend the launch party for the New Balance x Grenson collaboration, and you can check the write up for that here.
First of all, a very Happy New Year to all who read my blog! I hope 2015 was a great year for you all, and I wish you and your families all the best for 2016!
Secondly, I haven’t had much of a chance to post regularly on my blog over the last couple of months, mainly due to the amount I’ve been working, but I wanted to do a post where I rounded up all of the highlights in 2015 for myself.
Warsaw’s edition of Sneakerness was definitely the perfect event to pop my Sneakerness cherry, and a big shout out to all the great people who worked tirelessly to pull off the third Sneakerness in Warsaw.
Although the Warsaw edition isn’t the biggest out of all the Sneakerness events, it certainly had all bases covered, whether that was from shoes for sale such as recent releases, collaborations, vintage pairs, or the combination of good music, free entry, and even the cookies & cream ice cream which was on offer, all the necessary boxes were checked.
Over at New Balance Gallery, I took a look at the Made in UK New Balance 577 “The Napes” Pack, and you can check it out here, but I took a few extra shots of the shoe, so I wanted to do a post on here with them all.
A big big thanks to NB UK for the kind gift!
It had been long overdue, but finally, on the 1st of August 2015, Scotland had it’s first ever sneaker festival – Solebloc, held in Glasgow, and it was an absolute banger. The event itself was held at the excellent SWG3, a warehouse in Glasgow’s West End, and was the best setting for the event.
