Dubai’s Design District or d3 is one of the recently opened projects in the city and encompasses all that is modern, trendy, architecturally aesthetic and more. Once a year they put on a shoe convention of sorts and if you’re interested in streetwear at all, then listen up:
Taking place December 6th – 8th, Sole DXB is the ultimate meet up for sneakerheads, fashion lovers and music geeks. This year is all about celebrating next-gen South African designers/artists that are up and coming in the industry, as well as other talents from around the world. The main trends being highlighted are fashion, art, basketball and hip-hop.
What some might not know is that Sole DXB was launched back in 2010, and has consistently been a driving force that’s brought young people from all sorts of cultures together in Dubai for one event. It’s expected to see more than 20,000 people in attendance so make sure you buy your ticket before it’s too late (they’ve officially been on sale since yesterday). Brands such as Adidas, PUMA, Yeezy, Farfetch and more will be showcased, and several new collabs/drops will be shown here for the first time ever.
If you love collecting limited editions, make sure you cop some of the merchandise because it’s specific to Sole only. For the basketball players out there, there’s a tournament that will be taking place throughout the event and a good old-fashioned Sneaker Swap where you can buy, sell and trade whatever cool kicks you’ve got. Buy your tickets here.
