Manchester’s iconic super club returns this Friday, celebrating its 10-year anniversary with an absolutely stacked line up.
Fresh from dropping her newest album AIM earlier in the month, M.I.A headlines the night, crowning a diverse bill that’ll also include legendary reggae DJ David Rodigan, Section Boyz, a DJ set from Jungle and grime MC Novelist, amongst others.
Now in its eleventh season, the legendary club’s reputation has never been better, and Friday’s events kick off twelve weeks of music means Manchester is your go-to night out. Don’t have plans? You do now. With club nights all the way up until January, there’s no excuses to be made for missing out.
Tickets are going fast, but if you’ve managed to snag some, you’ll want to kit out your feet with the freshest creps around. Here’s some choice looks from JD that are essential for the big night.
The All Nighter
Since you’ll be on your feet for most of the night, you’ll want to keep them comfortable when you’re showing off your moves.
That’s where Nike’s Air Presto comes in. Its stretchy mesh upper flexes with every shape you throw, while the Phylon footbed and the iconic Air-Sole unit cushions and comforts hour after hour. Perfect for going the distance in.
There’s a chance they might take a bit of a mashing at times. Give them a seeing to with Crep Protect Spray before you head out to keep them looking box fresh all night long.
Adidas Originals’ iconic sneak’s relationship with music is well documented: from b-boys to Britpoppers, the low-profile legend has seen its fair share of dancefloors.
You can’t really go wrong with a Gazelle, so if effortless, tried-and-true looks are your thing, make it the shoe you rock up in this Friday.
The Statement Maker
Standing out in WHP’s Store Street venue might be tricky, but here’s a shoe that’s sure to get more than a few heads turning.
An optimised take on Nike’s court classic, these Air Force 1 Premiums feature iridescent accenting, flashing onlookers with bright, luminous colours from every angle, taking the legendary b-ball shoe’s reputation next level. A translucent outsole adds a touch of retro that’s massive right now too.
The Old School Banger
Speaking of retro, New Balance’s range of iconic footwear is on top when it comes to that on-point 90s look.
Stepped up with on point rose gold accents, these classic 373 trainers add some sporty style to your outfit, while NB’s famed cushioning makes these essential for going hard in when that song hits.
