Sole Superior, Singapore’s premier Sneaker and Streetwear convention, returns for the 4th consecutive year on 12 November 2016 at Zouk Singapore.

With an anticipated increase in attendees as well as to bid a fond farewell to Zouk’s Jiak Kim location, Sole Superior 2016 will take up the entire Zouk Complex.     

The popularity of sneakers and streetwear across genders and age groups has surged tremendously in the 12 months past. The last Sole Superior is fondly remembered for gaining worldwide attention and recognition from Sneakerhead and Streetwear enthusiasts across the globe.

The 2 post-event features on Highsnobiety emplaced Sole Superior (and Singapore) firmly in the realm of globally recognized sneaker conventions.

Inspired by the new futuristic way of describing something in a positive connotation, popularized by Harlem rapper Max B, .Wav(y) signifies the best music selections championed by sneakerheads, street wear enthusiasts and a new age Hip Hop audience (think Refuge Club). Expect soulful bass heavy music, banging 808’s and good vibes all afternoon long.
