WHAT DO YOUR SHOES MEAN TO YOU?

-

Sneakers are reportedly an extension of one’s personalit­y. Are yours saying the right thing?

Sole DXB consistent­ly confirms it - sneaker culture is here to stay. No longer is it sufficient to buy and wear a pair of trainers, the UAE’S annual three-day festival of shoes held at d3 in Dubai is a celebratio­n of their importance in society and the culture they have spawned. Having the latest set of ‘kicks’ is increasing­ly important, although so too now is having them tailored to reflect your own unique outlook. This is where customisat­ion artist Troy Cole a.k.a. Kickasso comes in. The most sought after in his field, Kickasso has worked with the world’s most famous athletes including David Beckham, Dwyane Wade and Chris Johnson and today he is in Dubai to meet you. Sneakerhea­ds are not going to want to miss out, so take a look inside as we speak to the designer and talk about where he is going to be this weekend, who was his best customer and his fantasy clients.
