Fashion, sneakers, young and dymanic were the models for our "Urban Style" meeting room. And what should not be missing in such a room: A cool graffiti on the wall!

Vintage - Old is fashionable again At the end of the first week of June 2019 the Pop-Up Shop Launch Event took place at the Adidas Originals Store in Berlin. The Westend Vintage Store presented its collection of hot pieces from the 80s, 90s and 00s. Insights to the high-quality vintage articles can be found at Instagram under @westend_vintage. The event was accompanied by the finest music by Jack Orsen and Adidas provided delicious drinks and snacks for their guests. Soft drinks were served by Fritz Cola and tasty sandwiches were provided by PIC NIC 34. As a sweet dessert the visitors could enjoy different kinds of Florida ice cream. The focus, however, was not on catering, but on presenting vintage collections from earlier years. Many will certainly ask themselves why vintage is so trendy again. In the following we explain to you what vintage means, how the trend developed to vintage and how you can find vintage at F&P Stock Solution.    What does Vintage mean? We often hear and talk about vintage, but what do we mean when we say "vintage"? Vintage is often used to describe different items in different categories, different qualities, different ages, but what does vintage really mean? The word "vintage" was first used at the beginning of the 15th century. It was taken from the old French Vendage, the grape harvest. Whenever we talk about vintage wine, we talk about wine from a particular harvest or season. This word is used today not only in relation to wine, but also to describe other objects from the past such as clothes or furniture. So what does "vintage" mean outside the wine category? By vintage we usually mean an old item that has a certain nostalgic value and is of high quality. Vintage usually means something that is at least 20 years old, but not more than 100 years old, as it would then be classified as antique. The term "vintage" is commonly used to describe a product that is representative of the prevailing style of a particular era, not just an old product that falls within the above timelines. Why are vintage clothes back in fashion? Individual look There are many reasons why Vintage has become popular. One of them is that consumers believe that mainstream fashion has become less unique and high street fashion is too general. So consumers long for an individual look that can be achieved with vintage clothes. Timeless trend In addition, there are many people who prefer individual and interesting vintage pieces and buy them as investments or unique pieces. Consumers are waking up to the fact that vintage clothes can be adapted to the latest trends and that they are also timeless classics that can become a must-have in any wardrobe. This is one of the main reasons why vintage has become so popular. You can pick up the latest trend and have something that's only good for a few weeks, or you can buy something vintage that you can enjoy for years. Expression and personality One of the most important aspects to look stylish is originality. It tells a lot about you and your personality. Vintage clothing allows people to express themselves. Expressing your personality through clothing is not easy, but vintage clothing can do that. Soul and history Let's be honest and admit that vintage clothes have a soul. There is much more to vintage clothing than just being old and used clothing. There is a history and art in them, and they are filled with the stories and memories of the people who came before us and wore them. Owning and wearing a vintage piece of clothing keeps these people and their history and craftsmanship alive. When everything is done, wearing vintage clothes means being wrapped in romance. What makes vintage clothing so popular is that it is simply so special. Below are two typical Adidas vintage sweaters. If you like vintage, leave us a comment. We are happy about every opinion. Vintage at F&P ? Actually there is also Vintage Stock at F&P. For this our customers must turn to our Second Hand offer.

Sneakerness Zürich - Our experience report Many sneaker lovers waited already longingly for the weekend on 04.05.2019 until the sneakerness finally stopped again in Zurich. The Sneakerness is one of the biggest sneaker fairs in Europe and takes place regularly in different countries. Meanwhile the fair does not only take place in European countries like Zurich, Cologne, Paris and Amsterdam, but also visits South Africa or Russia. This year the Sneakerness in Zurich again attracted numerous collectors, curious people and sneaker fans. Also our sneaker expert mingled with the audience and could lead many interesting discussions to rare sneakers and conversations with real connoisseurs from the sneaker area. Even before the start of the fair, there was a long queue in front of the entrance and many sneaker lovers flocked to Hall 622. When our sneaker expert entered the hall, he was amazed at the masses of sneakers and the number of diverse models. At the individual booths private sellers and dealers, rare sneakers up to very expensive Supreme articles were offered.  Most of the exhibitors were resellers. Resellers are dealers who, for example, buy an Adidas Yeezy for 300€ and resell it a short time later on the net for up to 1000€, depending on the rarity. Another alternative for the resellers have become fairs to offer their limited sneakers to a large mass.  In addition, there were a number of other cool booths. There was a barber, a tattoo artist and a sneaker cleaner on site to give the visitors a varied day.  Our sneaker lovers were particularly fascinated by the way people met at the show. As a rule, two strangers look each other in the eye first, then you look at the clothes. Sneakerness is different, you first look at the shoes. Because what you wear is what you are measured by in the world of sneakers. It was noticeable that most of the visitors wore very unusual and exotic models that were often limited and cost several hundred Euros. If we have aroused your interest in attending such an event in the future, please write it in the comments. We will give you a recommendation for the next event in your area.     ...

Reebok Alien Stomper Bishop Edition "40th Anniversary" The Reebok Classic "Alien Stomper" is officially available in a few selected stores, unfortunately sold out everywhere! On the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the first edition of the Alian saga called "Aliens-Die Rückkehr" (Alians the return) Reebok has launched a special edition of the Mid-Top Alien Stomper. This sneaker was worn by the film character Lance Bishop, an Android who served as a technician on the spaceship, during the unforgettable movie of the same name. Reebok wants to give the lover of a Hollywood classic from the '80s the opportunity to relive the mass phenomenon of that time thanks to a limited edition. The brand new Alien Stomper is a revised version of the 1986 classic silhouette. The special edition features a fascinating leather construction with a cream-coloured leather upper. The shoe owes his vintage look to its arch, which is complemented by the grey suede at the heel and the strap with the easily recognisable red details that are. The Reebok design team has gone to great lengths to refresh the packaging, as distinctive as the sneaker itself. The triangular box, adorned with a Union Jack pattern and some commemorative forms, deserves a special mention. In order to test the sneaker one day before the official release, the navigation of our @Sneakerfalke  set off for Berlin to the Toni cinema. However, this was not as easy as expected, as only selected winners from a competition via Facebook were allowed to participate. Fortunately, our sneaker expert was drawn by lot and was allowed to test the sneaker. The winners met in the old Berlin cinema Toni, which was rented by Overkill for the release party.      Many sneaker lovers gathered for a cosy meeting and were warmly welcomed with popcorn, soft drinks and sparkling wine. But the most loyal fans felt much more attracted by Overkill's special offer. This is a unique final battle package consisting of the following elements: Comic,Pin-Set and, last but not least, a magnificent alien poster. As a souvenir of the beautiful evening, one could immortalize oneself on the photo wall of Overkill's professional photographer.   CONCLUSION Comfort: Even if the Velcro fasteners do not directly influence the fit, they contribute to improved user friendliness. Design: An interesting design model that can quickly be defined as a lover's object on the street. We think the combination of retro and future is a beautiful one and of course we would wear the sneaker ourselves. Price: If you consider that this sneaker is not a special technology wonder, the respective price seems to be a bit high. The shoe was mainly designed for alien lovers. In a sense the Alien Stomper has some similarities with the legendary Air Max from the film saga "Back to the Future". Accordingly, it's the emotional value that makes the price so special.   If you are interested in the effective use of clothing stock lots, then please contact daniel.cikin@stock-solution.de .     ...

F&P sneaker specialist at Puma Uproar Spectra Launch The new Puma Uproar Spectra could be inspected on Thursday 11.04.2019 by our sneaker expert. Puma, one of the largest sporting goods manufacturers in the world, now inspires its customers with a polyvalent shoe, which is designed both for the basketball court and for relaxed evening walks in "the Hood". The slogan coined for this sporting event is: "Made for the street, designed for the court"! In the Kickz Store at Torstraße 86 in the heart of Berlin, the Puma sneaker was presented one day before the official release. The audience was a motley mix of sneaker collectors, basketball players and sneaker experts. Sophisticated drinks and casual hip hop beats provided a pleasant atmosphere worthy of the joyful nature of the event. The always helpful and cheerful staff were always available to answer questions about the new Puma sneaker. Also the local artist legend Thomas Marecki aka Morocco developed a powerful installation for the presentation of the Puma Sneaker. The shoe literally floats in the air and is held only by a fishing line. Among them are three basketball baskets, which indicate that the Puma shoe is worn in connection with sport, especially basketball. Thomas Marecki is a well-known artist legend who has distinguished himself over the years with unusual and unique works of art. Once again Morocco proves his artistic talent. All the components that distinguish the sneaker are first dismantled and then welded together in a new shape.     The Puma Uproar Spectra aims to combine the design of the unforgettable 90s with the most advanced technologies. This pair of sneakers made of synthetics/textile looks energetic and bright and stands out in particular for its fresh yellow bang. At first glance, one might think that the Puma team has browsed through the archives of all the past collections in search of craft materials for the creation of future icons. Future collides with retro in this glittering futro design.   PRODUCT FEATURES Grip: maximum grip for sharp cuts and sudden stops Powerful: PUMA's unique damper technology ensures high energy return and responsiveness throughout the game Fit: dynamic lacing and fit system with anchoring points on the collar for a secure hold CONCLUSION Our sneaker guru tried on the Uproar Spectra and put the sports shoe through its paces. Comfort: The sneaker adapts very comfortably to the foot and offers stable safety when running. Abrupt movement changes are no problem for the sneaker and can easily be used for sporting activities. Design: The sneaker, which is used for professional training in basketball, is also suitable as a casual sneaker for everyday life. Here the sneaker captivates by a bright yellow color selection, which raises the sneaker to the status of a real eye-catcher.  Price: The Puma Uproar Spectra is in the midfield. The sneaker is currently available at a price of 130€. For a sneaker with so many features and subtleties a justified price and a clear recommendation, if the colour pleases, to put on the sneaker.  If you offer current sneakers and have surplus goods and remaining stock from last season in stock, please contact our sneaker expert, who will show you our concepts and possibilities to effectively utilize your old stock.

Sneaker - Trainers or sport shoes ? Sporty shoes are known to everyone and are a faithful companion for most people during their everyday life. Sneakers and trainers are currently in vogue like never before. But now the question arises, what are the differences between a sneaker and a trainers? The sneaker was developed for sports such as croquet and tennis in the 19th century. It helped the athletes to bring their performances to a top level. The sneaker was distinguished by its lightweight construction and rubber sole and was first manufactured in England and America in 1860. At the beginning of the 20th century the sneaker became more and more popular and not only won symphathy among athletes. A prominent pioneer for the success of the sneakers was e.g. Mick Jagger. Like many others, he discovered the sneaker for everyday use. So the shoes got a new name: Sneakers. A trademark for the sneaker was that with these shoes on the foot, "the wearers sneaked almost silently across the streets". The first sneakers for the masses were made in 1917 in the USA by KEDS. The next big sneaker player was Converse. Since 1917 Converse sold the model Chuck Taylo All Star over a Miilarde times. This shoe is the most successful sneaker of all times Sneakers come from the English verb "to sneak" and are shoes that are mainly worn in everyday life. Sneakers are popular with young and old. They are available in different variations, whether luxury design at Gucci or cool retro style at Adidas. The difference between the sneaker and the trainers is due to a simple reason: While trainers are used for sports and have sporty functions, sneakers are fashionable shoes that are worn in leisure time.
