Solemart Berlin Summer 2017
It’s already a tradition that the team around Solemart comes to Berlin on the weekend before the big German tradeshows Bright, Seek, Premium etc. taking place in Germany’s capital. As it’s one of the „oldest“ sneaker events in Germany, we don’t have to introduce Solemart to you. As usual, Solemart has some specials to offer: Haiyti aka Robbery will perform some of her bangers live on stage, Bukez Finezt & Monsieur Dope serve the beats fort he rest of the day, the guys of Sneaker Cleanik will show you more than how to clean your kicks and Turnschuh TV & Deadstock will host a special sneaker quiz including wildcards!

Mesh & Laces
The second edition of Mesh & Laces takes place in Hannover on July 1. Dozens of private sellers and shops such as Overkillshop & Glückstreter will make it a great day for sneaker enthusiasts!

Laced Up Munich
Southern Germany is at it again! After events in several German and Austrian cities, Laced Up is back in their hometown for the next edition of the sneaker event! Once again, this will be a mix of sneakers, event and music!
Where: Muffatwerk, Zollstrasse 4, 81667 München
When: July 9, 12-8 PM
Sneaker X Berg Berlin
Sneaker X is the newest sneaker event series around Germany. The concept is interesting because they always want to mix sneakers with a (sub)cultural theme. The first event in Cologne was a big mixture of sneakers and street food. Next to all the sales booths, Sneaker X Burger had several nice food booths to offer. For the second edition, Sneaker X is coming to Berlin and all about the Kreuzberg neighborhood – that whole “Berlin Vibe”. Berlin is famous for partying, so Sneaker X Berg will be a day & night sneaker market and end in a big party – who wants to wake up at 10 AM the next morning in Berlin anyways?
Where: Festsaal Kreuzberg, am Flutgraben 2, 12435 Berlin
When: July 15 ( 2 PM until very late)
