FOOTWEAR-loving FASHIONISTAS are invited to a special pop-up party and rare trainer showcase this weekend.

The event by Leeds menswear brand Hiddenlab and online retailer Origin Fifty Two will be at Lambert’s Yard and will include a pop-up shop featuring some of the world’s most sought after sneakers, such as the Adidas Yeezy Boost and Nike Air Max.

From 12pm on Saturday, August 29, Lambert’s Yard will be taken over by the showcase of extremely rare sneakers, previously unseen menswear collections and hard-to-find vintage clothing.

The collection will include trainers limited to less than 1,000 pairs worldwide, some of which are 20 years old and have been sourced just for this event.

A free, all-day courtyard party will be held on Sunday, August 30, with bars and street food outside in the yard from 12pm, and DJs playing old school R&B and hip-hop.

Adam Jagger, retail director at Lambert’s Yard said: “This is a concept that we are really excited to be hosting.

“It fits into our ethos of supporting local talent of all types by giving them a platform to showcase their collections to a wider reaching audience.”
