Dubai’s annual Sole DXB once again played host to a variety of exclusive events and must-see exhibitions. Major brands came out to play, including the likes of Levi’s, Nike, Vans, PUMA and Dior, the latter of which brought out a selection of very limited shoes and its BMX bike.

Attractions ranged from exhibits displaying goods from Supreme — including the infamous brick — to various opportunities to customize sneakers ranging from Air Force 1s to goods from Han Kjobenhavn x PUMA. Speaking of the Air Force 1, the shoe really took over the event — the four AF100 collaboration sneakers appeared and one of the campaign’s vehicles was on hand. Luminaries including Jeff Staple arrived to sign sneakers and a tailor shop was erected to customize Levi’s jackets. The event culminated in performances from the likes of Pusha T, Teyana Taylor and Serious Klein.

Check out our exclusive photo coverage above. Meanwhile, halfway around the world, the HYPEBEAST 100 event was held in Miami.
