Sponsored by blog Home of the Sole, the first annual SoleFest will be hosted in Central Florida. Founded by four University of Central Florida students, Home of the Sole’s main goal in hosting SoleFest is to gather and bring together the top shoes and fashion enthusiasts in each city.

SoleFest will give local vendors and up and coming brands the opportunity to showcase their products in a trade show atmosphere. SoleFest also looks to provide local “sneakerheads” with another site to buy, sell and trade shoes among one another.


The festival will be held at Blue Moon Ultra Lounge in Waterford Lakes Orlando, Fl on July 28, 2012. It will begin at noon and go until 5 p.m. Presale tickets start at $10 and tickets at the door will be $12. Tickets are available online at www.solefest.com.

“Orlando’s the launch of a Florida based tour with Miami being the next stop in August. We ultimately want to create an event for sneaker collectors to share their collections, but to also explore different avenues of sneaker culture. Eventually we will be expanding outside of Florida starting with Atlanta,” Home of the Sole founder Michael Perez said.

In order to reserve a table, vendors can contact Perez prior to the day of the event. Smaller high top tables will also be available for rent the day of the festival.
