Sneakerheads and street wear enthusiasts heads up! Sole Superior is back for its fourth instalment on 12th November. If you don’t know about it already, Sole Superior is Singapore’s exclusive sneakers and street wear convention. The event has attained global recognition in the realm of sneaker convention after 2 post-event feature on Highsnobiety for Sole Superior 2015. Check out the highlights from last year:
As you can see, past instalments saw an array of street wear and sneaker vendors participating in the event. From some of the news and leaks I’ve heard from the organisers themself, It seems that this year is going to be way bigger than last. Here are the first wave of highlights you can expect at Sole Superior this year!
Exclusive Event Merch – Pras The Bandit, Mister Tucks and…
Following its collaboration last year, Sole Superior and Pras the Bandit come together again to produce merch unique to the event. The collaborative capsule include tees, caps, military field jackets (ala Kanye style) with embroidered details, tote bags, wood poster art, as well as a Pras x Sole Superior carpet. If there is anything I would advise, you need to go as early as possible if you hope to cop any of the merch. Last year’s capsule was practically sold out within 30 minutes since doors open so I’m expecting this year will be no different, or even faster since this year’s turn out is expected to be crazier than the last.

The official poster for Sole Superior 2016 was designed by Mister Tucks ( local illustrator x skater x rad master ), whom just released 4 graphics for global skateboard brad REAL Skateboards in September. To celebrate the collaboration, a limited run of Mister Tucks x Sole Superior 2016 hand-screened tees will be sold at the event. By limited I mean like ONLY 30 pieces; so you know what to do.

Lastly, this particular collaboration is one I feel sneakerheads will find VERY RELATABLE and functional. A three-way collaboration with TERRAINWARE and FIN, the Sole Superior Camping chair will fast become a key essential item for those who always queue and camp for sneaker drops. Think about it, why sit on the floor when you can get both comfort and style with this chair, right?

Free REAL tattoos
Yes- REAL, permanent tattoos by professional artists; not the temporary sticker kinds. Returning from his stint working guest spots in San Diego, Singaporean tattoo artist Alfrey Tattoos and Kelvin Monster – top score winner for 2016 Batam Tattoo Convention, will offer complimentary tattoos from an exclusive Sole Superior 2016 flash sheet to a selected lucky few. The flash sheet features graphics contributed by various artists consolidated by local illustrator collective Tell Your Children. The flash sheet will be released before the actual event. If you are interested, you can email Alfrey with your chosen art and schedule your appointment to get inked during Sole Superior.
Live DJ set by Wav(y)
The Hip hop DJ duo consisting of Prav and Deejay XG will be feeding the vibes on the wheels of steel at SS16. Signifying the best music selection backed by sneakerheads, street wear enthusiasts and new age hip hop audience, Wav(y) will be dropping some soulful bass heavy music and banging 808’s all afternoon. Check out their sounds here or below!
New Participating vendors and lucky draw
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. That means this year’s Sole Superior sees even more participating labels and retailers; including main stayers from past instalments and new vendors such as Vans and Jason Markk.
And what’s not to be missed is the Sole Superior Lucky Draw; where over $20,000 worth of products will be given away. Besides hourly giveaways, the ultimate prizes comprising of highly coveted items (mostly sneakers, but last year they gave away a KIKSTYO board!!) are given away at the grand draw at the end of the day. So be sure to stay till the end!
