Welcome to ShoeStack’s event blog, where we share our exciting experiences at various sneaker conventions throughout the year. Sneaker festivals provide a space for vendors and attendees to immerse themselves in a vibrant marketplace, showcasing and acquiring some of the most sought-after footwear in the game! Join us as we reflect on ShoeStack’s year so far, highlighting memorable moments and sharing our adventures yet to come.
SneakerZone in Leeds: A Momentous Debut
Our first event of the year took us to SneakerZone in Leeds, and it was an absolute blast! The atmosphere was electric, with sneakerheads from all over the UK and Europe gathering to celebrate their shared passion for sneakers.
We received a visit from under 18’s Manchester United Defender, Sam Murray. We were thrilled when he stopped by our table and expressed his interest in our products. Sam even picked up some of our popular sound-activated LED display crates!
English television presenter, football pundit, and former professional footballer, Jermaine Jenas was at the event filming for a Channel 4 documentary and captured the essence of the event through interviews with various sneaker enthusiasts and experts. To our delight, he chose to interview our friends Yorkshire Trainers, right in front of our stylish white LED display crates!
The Crepe City Chronicles
In March, ShoeStack participated in the first Crepe City of the year in Manchester. Crepe City is a dynamic event that celebrates sneaker culture in all its glory. Our display crates showcased an array of highly coveted sneakers; from the Tiffany & Co x Nike Air Force 1 collaboration to Off-White Nike’s, Sean Wotherspoon’s, and Atmos Elephant Air Max 1’s. Captivating the attention of attendees and collectors. It was an opportunity to connect with sneaker enthusiasts and be a part of the vibrant sneaker community in Manchester.
Classics Aren’t Made Overnight!
Following the success of Crepe City Manchester, ShoeStack made its presence felt at Crepe City London in May! We invited well-known YouTuber and NoTwoWays founder, Callum McGinley (Callux), along with footwear designers Rockwell Princely and Sam Awoyemi, to help unveil their highly anticipated new sneaker the ‘Formula’.
Amidst the buzz of sneaker enthusiasts and collectors, Callux found himself constantly swarmed by fans eager to catch a glimpse of the new sneaker and share a moment with the popular content creator.
We had the privilege of having Callum, Rockwell, and Sam sign a pair of the new sneakers for ShoeStack. We will proudly display this pair at our future shows, serving as a constant reminder of this special day.
This specific event will forever hold a special place in our hearts, as we feel it encompassed the true essence of collaboration, creativity, and community.
