The shoe giant is setting up shop at this year’s Sole DXB, a festival dedicated to sneaker culture and hip-hop held in the Middle Eastern hub. Nike flew in footwear professionals from all over the world to make people’s wildest shoe dreams come to life.
Only the white-on-white pair, the ultimate in a blank canvas, will be available for customization. Treatments such as different patterned swooshes, studs and millennial pink leather embellishments can incorporated onto the basketball-turned-lifestyle shoes. For those more daring, there’s also a dip dye station that will completely transform the plain kicks into a one-of-a-kind design that can only be achieved exclusively at the event.
