Level Shoes is making its return to Sole DXB’s footwear fair. After two seasons away, the Dubai-based retailer is making its comeback with special guests: Athletic Propulsion Labs (APL), The Shoe Surgeon and Filling Pieces.
The event, taking place in Dubai’s Design District Nov. 18 and Nov. 19, will include a setup by Level, showcasing designer sneakers and special trends for the season. APL founders Ryan and Adam Goldston, Filling Pieces designer Guillaume Philibert and Dominic “The Shoe Surgeon” Chambrone will all be on hand with Level. There, APL will showcase an exclusive sneaker produced in Italy and an alligator trainer dipped in 24K gold, while Philibert will offer sneakerheads a chance to design their own Filling Pieces shoe.
Plus, The Shoe Surgeon crafted an exclusive collection for Level, a five-piece sneaker collection. The line will showcase items such as reimagined Jordans and Airforce 1s in a range of luxury materials such as python, horween leather, nubuck and fringe accents. Each pair, which take more than 40 hours to make, was crafted by Chambrone at his Surgeon Studios in Los Angeles. The brand will also be offering made-to-order appointments throughout the festival.
The Level Shoes space will also feature designer brands such as Maison Margiela, Balenciaga, Rick Owens, Golden Goose, Axel Arigato, Zeer and Pierre Hardy. More limited-edition sneakers will be available from Adidas NMD, ETQ Amsterdamn and Joshua Sanders. Maison Margiela is showing a retrospective of the brands “German Army Trainer” replica sneakers.
According to the Sole DXB website, the event combines contemporary street culture and Middle Eastern flair.
