SoleFest has gotten off to a great start this year and Naples did not disappoint as the sneaker community came out strong once again for our 2nd show in Southwest Florida!
A great crowd returned to North Collier Park on Sunday for SoleFest Naples! The facility was packed as vendors wrapped the gym exchanging sneaker collections of all sorts and sizes, as well as custom art, accessories, and apparel!
Many first timers made an appearance at SoleFest Naples. While they didn’t know what to expect, everyone quickly caught on as raffles began and sneaker battles took place!
As always, through out the show fans had the opportunity to win SoleFest shirts and prizes as well as giveaways from our sponsors!
Larry and Cornell were our VIP winners, taking home a brand new pair of Air Jordan 1 “Bred” Low’s. Matthew was our General Raffle Winner, taking home a brand new pair of Air Jordan “Legend Blue” 11′s!
SoleFest decided to give EVERYONE a chance to vote on the sneaker battle this time, even people that weren’t in attendance! That’s right, we took to Instagram and asked for followers to help choose who brought out the most heat on their feet!
Preston’s Just Don Air Jordan 2′s received the most votes as he was crowned Champion of the Sneaker Battle and took home $100 cash!
Of course we could not end the show without acknowledging the Best Vendor Table! While all of the vendors bring out great products and sneakers, one vendor tends to always stand out. At Naples this time around, it was definitely Kicks on Canvas! Jordan Adams, the artist himself, brought out many custom displays of your favorite retro cards and Jordan dunks. Everyone loved his work and their were no complaints as he received the $100 cash prize for the Best Vendor Table!
Over all it was a great event and we can’t wait to return back to Naples! Special thanks to Dendoe, House of Koh, Kicks on Canvas, Sneaker Union, JumpGirl23, and everyone else that made it out to the event!
We can’t wait to see you at the next SoleFest! Check out the photos of the event below!
