Saturday May 7th, was Sneakerbox in Bristol, the West Country’s premier Sneaker and Lifestyle event run by sneakerheads for sneakerheads and fans of the culture. We were invited down to cover the event and host our @TrappedStore Merchandise Pop up Shop at the Bierkeller Event in Bristols City Centre for the first time so it was a dope day. The selection of kicks on the stall was very varied with some OG Jordan and Nike Air Max Heat, contemporary adidas, asics and Newbalance silhouettes and tables full of hype!
Kaws were selling for 2, 000 a pair, Yeezy Boosts 350’s were in attendance and the odd DS bargain was available here and there to balance it out. This is the Sneakerbox team’s 6th event and we were very impressed by the footfall that came through the venues door, from 12 -6pm there was never an empty space.
Our Pop up Shop was a success with creatives and music artists coming to talk to the team about Bristol’s culture, Trapped supporters grabbing merchandise and everyone buying our dope raffle tickets. we want to say a huge thank you to the team and to everyone that we met for accepting us Londoners into their City and making us feel a part of their sneaker culture. A special thanks goes out to the King of Trainers for donating our raffle prize of a pair of Nike Air Max 95 Ultras and to King of VI for involving us in his Vlog.
