Sole Academy, the leading retailer of sport-inspired lifestyle shoes in the Philippines, is excited to introduce to you the biggest sneaker celebration in Manila and the first of its kind in the world: the SOLE ACADEMY SNEAKER CARNIVAL 2015.
Sneakerheads, sneaker enthusiasts and guests from all over the country can come and enjoy a one-of-a-kind experience with Sole Academy and its Best-In-Class sneaker brand partners: adidas, Asics, New Balance, Nike, Puma, and Reebok, in the hopes of raising Manila as one of THE sneaker hotspots in Asia.
Guests at the Sole Academy Sneaker Carnival 2015 (SASCXV) can look forward to five exciting segments throughout the day:
This segment is a must-go especially for guests new to the sneaker scene as SASCXV is set to excite y’all with more than 20 exciting special and exclusive sneaker releases on the event day, with fashion shows, and most importantly, a series of informative forums covering a range of topics including Sneaker Care care of our friends over at Clyde Premium Shoe Cleaner, styling talks by Style Bible, and getting to know the home grown sneaker culture through Sole Movement.
No event of this scale is complete without beats from the best musical acts in the country today:
And with your favorite people over at Magic 89.9 as hosts, you know it’s gonna be one hell of a day.
Next up, we’ve got a little something for the artsy folk as well with fresh and premium displays of various sneaker-inspired mixed-media art collections by some of Manila’s most creative minds. There’s also the ARTandSOLE contest where the top winner gets PHP30,000, followed by the second and third placers who get PHP20,000 and PHP10,000 respectively. World-renowned sneaker news outlet, SNEAKERNEWS will be one of the special judges for the contest and our friends over at Secret Fresh art gallery promise the most awesome exhibits.
And of course no event on Earth is ever, ever complete without FOOD. Guests can experience a delectable, gastronomic experience of epic proportions from these “food groups”:
This segment invites everyone to give back to the community by making a dash (Donate-A-Shoe) to help Sole Academy raise 10,000 pairs of used (but still usable) and unused footwear which will be given to SA’s chosen deserving beneficiaries.

“Through a lot of our special releases in the past, we have successfully provided Filipino consumers with a lot of the most coveted sneakers at retail price which would otherwise be very difficult to obtain through other channels,” said Carlo Trillo, Director of Marketing for Sole Academy. “This celebration event is just our humble way of expressing our gratitude to our brand partners and guests for their commitment and support to Sole Academy throughout these years,” he added.
