Attention, sneakerheads! We've got a doozy for you!
On Sunday, October 18, the World Trade Center in Pasay will host a one-of-a-kind event aimed at local sneaker fans: Sole Slam 8!
Check out the event's poster below:
We've had the privilege of attending previous Sole Slam stagings, and we're telling you, the hype surrounding the event is definitely well-deserved. But just in case that brief testi ain't enough, we've listed a few reasons why sneaker fans—from the casuals to the die-hards—and even those who are just looking for a better way to spend their Sunday should be part of this kick-tastic shindig!
HUDDLE UP WITH FELLOW SNEAKER FANS
Sole Slam 8, in partnership with Nice Kicks, is basically a ginormous gathering of people who share the same devotion to man shoes. So, if you're one of 'em, you won't have much trouble interacting with those in the venue. Who knows? Maybe you'll even gain a few new friends! (Plus points if it's a hot lady.)
A BARRAGE OF THE FLASHIEST KICKS THIS SIDE OF THE GLOBE
You could look at Sole Slam 8 as a convention where the flashiest of sneakers can be found, and seeing all of them together in one place is certainly a sight to behold. Have your own pimped out pair? Show it off in the event and gain a few fans!
THE APPEARANCE OF SNEAKER-LOVING WOMEN
We admit: One of the biggest reasons why we're tagging this as a must-attend is the presence of short shorts-wearing ladies. If last year's edition was any indication (hello, Jahziel Manabat!), this year's version will again be filled with sneaker-loving belles who'll make you stare a little bit lower than usual (just like these women).
Last year, the event offered the kind of activities the typical bro will love, from beer pong challenges to an NBA 2K14 tourney. This year, we're told that it's going to be the same story, with stuff like hoops-related contests (b-ball shootout, anyone?) and even a sneaker battle. So, if ever you become bored of ogling the ladies shoes, you'll still be entertained.
AWESOME DJ PERFORMANCES
We were blessed to see acclaimed DJs Ron Poe, Ace Ramos, Jade Hartmann, and Marc Marasigan pumping up the crowd last year. For Sole Slam 8, another list of über-talented disc-scratchers will be at hand. Who are they? Attend and find out; we assure you it will be worth it!
WELCOME, YOUR GUEST OF HONOR
International rap superstar Bernard Freeman a.k.a. Bun B will be part of the sneaker par-tey! A former half of the popular rap duo UGK or UnderGround Kingz, he'll dish out the rhymes that make our #hugot lines sound like child's play! Awesome kicks and activities, exciting contests, DJs, and mad hiphop skills, what more can you ask for, right?
Do note that these are just some of the sights, sounds, and activities in Sole Slam 8 and we're betting our next paycheck there will be other surprises—both in the program and the personalities—along the way. Just another incentive to get yo' ass of the couch be part of this legit sneaker haven!
Note: Gates open at 12 noon. Tickets start at P400 (General Admission). For ticketing, inquiries, email email@example.com
