Looking for the best kicks and drinks combo? Look no further than the Sauvelle pop-up coming to 17 Kingsland Road from Monday 3rd - Friday 7th October for a week long run of masterclasses and exhibition, dedicated to perfectly pairing limited edition trainers to tipples. Inspired by limited edition sneakers, the decadent craft vodka brand has teamed up with footwear connoisseurs The Drop Date for a series of insightful talks, covering everything from high-tops to highballs. Iconic vodka cocktail and sneaker masterclasses, conducted by industry experts, will teach imbibers and kicks collectors the history of the recipe and the roots of their creation, with a new serve and trainer each day.

From rare original releases to coveted collaborations, the team at The Drop Date have carefully picked shoes that broke new ground in terms of materials, colour combinations and technology, all designed and created with the same flair and attention to detail as the best beverages. Providing a rare insight into the story behind these iconic trainers, revealing how the mix of ingredients - materials, colours, silhouettes and construction - combined to create milestone designs that transcended their athletic roots to become bona fide style icons.

Art lovers and fashion aficionados can admire an exhibition each evening. For those who want to sip cocktails in canvers, a bar can be found hidden in the back, offering a range of twisted classics created with French artisan spirit Sauvelle Vodka from 5pm - 11pm every night. Expect the iconic martini, crowd-pleasing bloody mary’s and everyone’s favourite pick-me-up the espresso martini among other delights.
