When in Barcelona we always know that we have to expect the unexpected from the Limiteditions mastermind Ricky. This time he organized a Vintage Exhibition and Market in an apartment situated next door his infamous store and property of a lady called Sofia Moxo who's kindly housing shoes by the ton, elegantly presented. We were absolutely impressed and speechless. So we won't add more words, but we will leave the pics speak for us. We want just invite you to get in touch with Limiteditions to arrange a view as the apartment will stay open for few days. Stay tuned because UrbanCamou will drop more info about the sale of these vintage sneakers very soon.
While in Barcelona for the B&B, we went to visit one of the most interesting Sneaker Store in the all Europe, Opium Barcelona. Actually we already knew the store as we were there during the last summer at the opening day and the launch of the exclusive Air Jordan VII "Miro`". The idea comes from the same head of Limited Editions and Chikashitsu but since the starting of the collaboration with the infamous parisian Sneaker Boutique, the store looks refreshed with some Nike sneaks that it's impossible to find in Europe. Pics talks for them self!! The atmosphere in store is dark and black, but inside you can find some of the most bright releases of the year. All the Jordans Countdown Packages, Tier Zeros and Quickstrike, Nike Uptempos and Penny Hardaway II's and much, much more. We love the idea of the wall clock with all the Jordans OG from the I to the XII. If you are in Barcelona you much check it out!!! Independent is still alive!!

Above few pics of what we saw inside the Sport&Street area this year in the winter edition of Bread&Butter in Barcelona. Was good to see stands of Reed Space, Limited Editions and Solebox reminding the presence of an indipendent soul in the streetwear scene nowadays too much controlled by "big corporate companies".
A fresh looking return for UK brands Reebok and Boxfresh. We found very interesting emerging brands like the italian Super (Showing its last collaboration with VNGD) and the french Qhuit. The new Mini Concept found a space between sneakers brands as New Balance, Saucony and Pro Keds. Check later for detailed pics of the collections shown at the tradeshow.
