Frequently Asked Questions
Should I bring cash to the event?
Yes it's essential. The event is cash only and once inside the venue it will be difficult to leave the venue to find a cash machine. Some sellers will accept card payments but these are a minority. Bring enough cash with you to buy what you want!
Will all the best shoes be sold if I arrive late?
No. Sellers bring hundreds of pairs with them and there will be thousands of pairs available in different sizes throughout the day. Whilst getting in early with a VIP ticket guarantees you get the kicks you want, there are many bargains to be had later in the day and Crepe City has never sold out.
I don't want to queue. What time does the queue start?
Since our first event in 2009 there has always been a queue of the most enthusiastic sneaker heads starting from 6am and by opening at 11am the queue is sometimes hundreds of people long. The best way to avoid the wait is to get a VIP ticket which guarantees entry as soon as the doors open. If you don't like queueing don't be put off, the line dies down by around 3pm and you'll be able to get in quickly.
Is there an age restriction?
There is no age restriction to event but we advise that under 16's are accompanied by an adult.
