Sole Bloc

Last August, the people of Scotland descended on the SWG3 venue in the West End of Glasgow for Sole Bloc, Scotland's first ever sneaker festival, and for Summer 2016, Sole Bloc was back for it's second event, and it was sure to be even better than the last one.

You'll have to forgive me though, as I had absolutely zero work commitments for a change, so the photos are few and far between, but if you're ever in doubt about attending, hopefully the small selection of images below will be enough to convince you to go! Also be sure to check out my write up from last year's event here.

Now it may not be the biggest event in comparison to others in the UK, or have the widest selection of sneakers, and what not, but I'll tell you one thing, you will NOT find a better atmosphere at another sneaker event than you will at Sole Bloc.

Nothing better than being able to attend a sneaker event to hang out with your mates, grab a beer, and chat sneakers and everything else. Shout out to the guys involved with Sole Bloc for giving us an event to do that at, legends.

Trainer events have taken the world by storm in recent years, and finally, August 2015 will see Scotland hosting it's very first event - SoleBloc. If you're into trainers, chances are you'll know about Hanon Shop, and on Saturday, August 1st 2015 they will be holding a lottery for three of their favourite collaborations at the SoleBloc trainer festival in Glasgow.
