SoleFest Tampa was fantastic, as we ended the year with a great event at the Tampa Bay Convention Center.
Hundreds of fans lined up as doors opened at 12pm on December 12th for SoleFest Tampa. The most exclusive sneakers were bought, sold and traded all day.
Tampa’s local sneaker boutique, Soleciety, sponsored SoleFest Tampa. Soleciety was a vendor at the show as well. If you were in attendance, you may have seen the massive “claw” machine by their table. Fans had the chance to win a pair of their favorite Yeezy’s or Air Jordan’s which were the prizes in the timeless arcade game.
Fans had the chance to win various raffles through out the day. SoleFest Shirts were raffled off every hour. Chase Walls was the first winner of an official SoleFest Shirt! VIP ticket holders were entered into all raffles, as well as the exclusive VIP only Raffle for the Air Jordan “Royal” One lows. Congrats to Holden Hunter, who was the VIP winner at SoleFest Tampa!
The Main Raffle at SoleFest Tampa consisted of the SoleFest Prize Pack which included an assortment of the hottest releases. The fan with the winning ticket, got to choose one pair from the Prize Pack! Micah Coulter walked away with a brand new pair of Air Jordan 11 “Infrared” Low’s.
Fans had the chance to enter the most exclusive sneaker in their collection into the Sneaker of SoleFest competition! Daniel A’s Louis Vuitton “Jaspers” received the most votes online during SoleFest Tampa and he took home $100 cash!
We appreciate the vendors at SoleFest Tampa and at all of our events. While fans can enter into different raffles and competitions through out the show, Vendors usually have their hands full and don’t always take part in the action. We love for our vendors to bring heat to the events and we embrace the best displays that are setup. The Best Vendor is always awarded at SoleFest. Jamiel, took home the cash prize with his awesome collection of kicks that were on display at SoleFest Tampa!
