Its been a very long time since my last post on this blog. Mainly due to university and exams, I haven’t had the time to upload much in the past few months. I wanted to write this, somewhat of a new introduction to Crep Culture to outline the direction I will be taking with my blog in the year or so to come.
My blog and my writing is something I am incredibly passionate about and any support whatsoever means the world to me. That being said, I have set up an Instagram account to keep track of the day to day changes and updates which we experience in the ever-growing sneaker community. The account will focus mainly on news and release information, as well as my own personal experiences whether that is events I go to or just what’s on my feet that day! This is something I have been planning for a while now as a way of broadening my horizons and attracting a new audience to my writing.

BIG changes to come! I have set myself a goal of uploading an article at least twice a month beginning next month (June 2019). This goal will hopefully help me to push to become more regular with uploads and help me to grow. I am also planning on implementing a more personal touch to my blog which will include my own photography, rather than other peoples images. This is something that I feel very strongly about as I want my work to be my own in all aspects.
As well as the usual discussion articles I want to write some more about the sneaker events which take place all over the world. There is no way of providing a recap without first-hand experience of these events so I intend to travel to and attend the numerous crep conventions happening in the coming months. A few that I have in mind are; Crepe City (July), Sneakerness (Septemeber) and Sole DXB (December). Of course, there will be others which pop up in between these and best know I’ll be there! I want to photograph the events, talk to fellow sneakerheads and write recaps and reviews of all the crazy things which happen there. Since being at university I haven’t attended near as many of these events as I would have liked to, so I’ve got to make amends!
In a scene that expands every day with shrinking individuality, I feel that it is important to keep touch of the history and roots of brands like Nike, Adidas and Reebok (etc) and how this has influenced the culture today. To do this I will frequently take a step away from what’s new and trending to revisit the evolution and stories of the golden days, before the monumental boom in popularity which we experience today. An example would be a recap of the history of the Nike Air Max lineage, something which I care about greatly and (think) I know a bit about.
Anyway! Just a quick one to let you know what the plan is for the upcoming months, and that I am very excited to deliver new content! Hopefully this way I will be far more hands-on than I have been recently and can get involved with some cool things in the future.
As I said above, your support is hugely appreciated! Feel free to get in touch if you have any ideas or suggestions or just want to link up! Follow CrepCulture on Instagram to keep it locked… giveaways to come once we get a few followers onboard!
