Sole DXB, the annual footwear, music, art and lifestyle festival will not take place this year...

Every year, sneakerheads, music lovers, art enthusiasts and those looking for a fun night out, jet-set to Dubai for Sole DXB – the lifestyle festival that becomes a three-day hub for the above. 

First inaugurated in 2011, the annual event merges the worlds of footwear, music and art, connecting communities through creativity and culture.

Brands such as Nike, Adidas, Reebok, Burberry and Farfetch have exhibited at the festival and as it usually falls in December, we were looking forward to exploring the latest kicks on the market, exclusive launches and musical performances.

However, due to the pandemic, Sole DXB 2020 was postponed with no new dates announced and now, the festival has confirmed the cancellation of its 2021 edition.
