About six weeks ago I did the British 10K with my beloved Run Dem Crew. Other Nike running crews flew in from all across the globe to take part in what we dubbed ‘Bridge the Gap‘ – an exercise in bringing together different worldwide crews to share their love of running and good times. To commemorate this, Nike gave a few of us the chance to iD a pair of sneakers and these bad boys are mine. Never Nike iD’d before? Check out the process below.

Sure, the vibe’s different over this way (to say the least), but one of the best ongoing discoveries of the area is the street art, particularly around Shoreditch.

Here are my top five post-run Shoreditch faves:
