We had so much fun making a video homage of Sneakersnstuff’s local London area with the original crew members Mubi and Myriam to coincide with the launch of our latest Vans collaboration: The Sneakersnstuff x Vans ”London Pack”.
Mubi and Myriam dragged us around the Shoreditch area all weekend showing us many of their local spots where they eat, play and chill. Shoreditch is busy, vibrant and rich in local culture, there is always lots to experience and enjoy at any time of day or night. Next time you visit London be sure to swing by the Sneakersntuff store and follow just some of the routes Mubi and Myriam take you thru – you will not be disappointed!
The NV Barbers
When Jay Z and Beyonce are in town they shut the place down for themselves and their crew, just one of the famous couples favourite places to eat in London. Clutch is a small and very intimate restaurant tucked away just around the corner from Colombia Road, with an open kitchen you can see what the chefs are doing and also there is a great bar area around the back for private or open parties.
Clutch has made eating fried chicken a guilt free experience by using the finest grade groundnut oil to fry many of their chicken dishes. Aside from the fried chicken there are many other English sides that compliment the chicken tenders and on the bone dishes including the creamy coleslaw, Mother hen stuffing and Clutches chicken gravy. The Sneakersnstuff team always have a great night at Clutch, we’ve celebrated many birthdays there and long may that continue, the Clutch team always look after us which we always appreciate.
Shoreditch High Street Power League pitches
Brick Lane is one of London’s most famous and iconic streets and must see if you are ever in town – famous for being London’s Curry Mile and Vintage clothing haven you are never too far from some fine Indian cuisine and a Vintage gem. There is always something happening in the area, sample sales, exhibitions, pop up galleries and trade shows. The famous Crepe City sneaker exchange also happens in the famous Truman Brewery so never a dull day on the Lane.
Sunday Brick Lane comes to life – the whole street is shut down for pedestrians, it generally feels like the World comes out to share their local cuisine and dishes with the London locals and tourists, a great place to discover new flavours and dishes if you have never tasted them before. The Sunday team like to pop down on their lunch breaks to grab a lil something with a little flavour and switch it up every week, we like to share and see what we are into so we can plan the next weeks lunch.
Colombia Road Flower Market
One of the nicest things to do on a Sunday is pop down to the Colombia Road flower market. The Sneakersnstuff team usually take turns every week to walk down and pick some of the finest flower selections available, everyone has a very unique taste which works so well to keep the store looking different.
The Flower market is always full of exotic colours and smells with a mix of East London hustle and bustle the English banter is a highlight, all the flower stalls all have something unique and special to offer. Either go early or go late as it is near enough impossible to walk thru during the main part of the day. There are some great spots to eat and drink along the road and always interesting things to see and hear, with live bands and speakers.
House of Vans
Don’t forget Sneakersntuff is located in heart of Shoreditch, 107-108 is the address and we are literally next door to the Ace Hotel. We are so happy to provide the locals as well as everyone else with the best sneaker selection in London hands down, and it has been a pleasure to be a part of the growth and development of the Shoreditch area. Our team are friendly and knowledgeable so they can help you with all your sneaker needs and questions. Everyone is welcome!
