7 Reasons Why You Need To Go To Sole DXB This November


Dubai Design District (d3) is the place to be on 18 and 19 November.

Why? Because that’s where you will get your dose of street culture with a little dust of the Middle East. Sole dxb is back to celebrate street fashion, art, music and even basketball.

It’s something you need to go to and here’s why:

1. The theme is ‘City of Gold’ 

Quite appropriate given Dubai’s souks and style history.

2. Top brands will be there

We’re talking Nike, adidas Originals, PUMA Select, New Balance and Level Shoes.
