It is has been nearly one month since sneaks&peaks landed with their 8th episode at the new venue “119 floodgate st”. The huge multi roomed venue offered a fresh new feel to the event, with a beast of a main room that hosted tiers of sneakers stacked up in the central pods and independent brands showcasing along side the big boys like Carhartt round the perimeter. Local brands including Gvnmnt, Milkboy clothing and Ambush supply were doing it for the midlands each with there own take on street wear. The stand out retailer was the shiny mobile concept store 24HOURCLUB, stocking brands such as “Fuct”, “Jason Marks” and “Human Made” out of there retro air-cooled trailer.
Room two provided more chilled out vibes with food offerings from Digbeth Dining Club including sneaks&peaks favourites The Meatshack, plus The English Indian, Manilla Munchies and Victoria crepes. And while your burgers where grilling, you had the chance to freshen up your beard game or get that fade sorted by resident barbers The Folsom Barbers Club, or you could sit down and take in the doodles of live artists Ruth Porter and ThatBlokeWilson. Back out on Floodgate street, despite the early rain showers, shoppers were treated to the visual delights of Graffiti writers and street artists including Philth, N4T4, 3Dom, KREK, ZINER, SOKEM, NEWSO, GENT, PEAL & MEDS
