Looking back: The Amsterdam Super trunk show 2020

Just only a few days ago the Amsterdam Super Trunk Show took place. We had a great day and were happy to receive over 300 visitors at the event. With it being the first edition of the Amsterdam Super Trunk Show and uncertainties around the Corona virus we were very happy with the amount of people that came to show their interest, love and appreciation for shoes and style in general. We want to thank all the contributors and brands that helped making the event possible. Together, we made the Amsterdam Super Trunk Show a great success! Looking back at this event we have summarized the day in a picture compilation.

The venue was quite nicely filled with people

Right as we opened the doors to the Amsterdam Super Trunk people started pouring in and the mood was set. People where super eager to know more about the shoes and brands that were there and the positive mood for the day was set basically right away. As a precaution we had signs posted around the venue to let visitors know it is ok not to shake hands that day and requested everyone to make sure they often wash their hands to prevent further spreading of the virus. With that out of the way let's talk a bit more about the brands and the first Dutch Championship shoe shining.

At 14:00 it was time for the first Dutch Championship shoe shining made possible by Saphir, Dumco and The ShoeCare-Shop. The shoes are by Magnanni and supplied by Zwartjes Amsterdam. The objective was to shine a pair of new out of the box Magnanni shoes as shiny as possible within a 20 minute time frame. The three finalists were Theo Frijn, Mike Reuvekamp and Jan Quinten Oskam. There was strong competition between the contestants, but we can announce that this years champion is Theo Frijn! Congratulations!
