We hope that street-style enthusiasts are prepared, because the UAE’s street festival is back. Sole DXB is making a return from Thursday, December 5 to Saturday, December 7 at Dubai Design District (D3). Time you got your sneakers ready.

There is no denying that streetwear is where fashion is at, and even high-end designer brands are in on it. This trend has found a home in Dubai, where sneaker-heads thrive. Sole DXB is a three-day extravaganza, which celebrates the latest and coolest trends from street-culture.

Over the years, the event included diverse activations from the fashion industry, spanning across clothing, footwear, and accessories. But that is not all, Sole DXB also includes headline performances from international acts, who bring the best from the hip-hop scene to the city. Seeing as this year, the festival will celebrate all things Jamaica, the music line-up did not disappoint.
