Last Sunday Maria Pizzeria and Dflektor went to Crepe City to check out some nice rare kicks and meet up with sneaker freakers. It was a long queue waiting, really packed but luckily it was sunny and a good vibe going on.
One of Maria Pizzeria’s fav kicks! White + gradient… tasty.

I have a fashion-related degree, and have been in and around fashion (mainly retail & styling) ever since I can remember.

I love sausage dogs and tortoises, anything from the 90s and wearin’ old school sportswear & streetwear 24/7.
How many pairs do you have and how many years have you been collecting?
Around 200 pairs with a few doubles chucked in there… and I’ve been collecting for like 7-8 years now.
Whats the best thing about crepe city?
The great vibe!! There’s always such a buzz regardless of how busy it is, it’s always great to see the turnout – and all the amazing kicks people have to offer! It’s also nice to be recgonised or have people saying ‘OMG YOU’RE SMALLFEETBIGKICKS I GO ON YOUR SITE ALL THE TIME’ – makes you feel like hard work really does pay off!:)
I bet there are some kicks you are dreaming about and still haven’t copped, which ones are they and why don’t you own them already?
There are waaaay too many for me to even think of right now!! Shima shimas are prolly one of the top few I want but I can’t have. I haven’t copped them cos all the sick colorways and collabs are men’s which usually start from a 6, 5.5 if I’m lucky but even then im a 4.5 so they’re still waaay too big!
What’s the worst thing that ever happend to your kicks, sneaker nightmare?
I bought a pair of Huarache Le’s for reaaaal cheap years ago and then the sole came away, it was so sad. I also bought a pair of ACG Mowabbs – or the same shoe but different colourway – it was a sick sample pair that I’d never seen before… Drove to Cambridge for a day out and the soles on both shoes literally crumbled on my feet, I was so upset just cos I loved the shoes that much!
Jess’ 3 favourite pairs from her stand. DS elephant atmos Air Max 1s, DS all blue Huarache Le’s, DS History of Air Air 180s, DS ‘adventure pack’ air max 1s
