Solefest Orlando was nothing short of great! We opened the doors at UCF and the Central Florida Sneaker community did not disappoint! Hundreds packed the Education Complex with all of the hottest releases as well as Holy Grails, Player Exclusives and much more!
Vendor tables and VIP Tickets were sold out days before the show. It was like West Palm all over again, as the crowd grew before doors opened at 12. While many came to buy, sell, and trade their own collections, SoleFest still had a couple pairs of shoes to raffle off. Jacob Perez was the lucky VIP Winner of the Jordan “Sport Blue” 14s but Hunter Parrish was our main raffle winner. Hunter took home a pair of Nike Kobe 9 Elites “What The Kobe”.
Through out the show fans had the opportunity to win SoleFest shirts and giveaways from Vendor’s that were in attendance.
SoleFest loves to give away shoes but some of us love cold hard cash! Andres Gonzalez brought out the heat and was crowned SoleFest Orlando Sneaker Battle Champion with his Louis Vuitton x Kanye West “Jaspers”. TatPack was in attendance for the first time bringing the custom heat to the backpacks. The feedback from the fans as well as vendors was synonymous; everyone loved TatPack so the Best Vendor Display was an easy choice. Both winners received $100 each!
The common trend of SoleFest Orlando was either you came with a lot and left with nothing, or you came with nothing and left with a lot. All of our Vendors had a successful day and our fans walked away happy with something they wanted or were looking for. Dendoe, House of Koh, Sneaker Union, Hoop Culture, Shoepremacy, Ruff n Rukkus, TatPack, among many others were all in attendance at SoleFest Orlando!
Thank you to everyone that came out, we can’t wait to see you at the next SoleFest! Take a look at the pictures below to see if you made our highlight recap!
