Toronto's "United We Sole" Event
Toronto Loves Kicks' "United We Sole" event was definitely a success. Check out my photo coverage of the event at Sneaker Freaker.
Here's the lowdown on the day via Dion of Toronto Loves Kicks:
"This sneaker convention brought in over 1200 people from around the City and abroad and created a lane that was much needed in Toronto. You had your choice of Foamposites, Wolf Grey's, Ragging Bull pack, Air Max 95's, Air Force One's customized personally for TLK courtesy of Anthony Armenta. Clothing lines included Nothin', Doinitwell, TheONE and Ambush Apparel helped along side exclusive Snap Backs to literally set the ATM on fire. That's just to name a few of the heat that you could have expected to see.
Throughout the event there were giveaways by the hour, plenty of photo's being taken by the TLK back drop as everyone was "sneakergenic". We had live performances by JRDN, Church Chizzle - MuchMusic's Rap City freestyle battle champion and Gee Wunder to name a few of the talent within the community. In addition, we had DJ Tabs and Channel Nine at the show and what a social driven sneaker party convention this turned out to be. You had collector’s young and old trading, purchasing and selling limited edition sneakers, as well as discussions of their guilty sneaker obsessions.
If you were to ask the Co-Founders of Toronto Loves Kicks what they set out to achieve with United We Sole they would say for a buy, sell and trade socially driven Sneaker Expo which will attract all walks of life, art and culture which is a direct reflection of our City uniting everyone's sole in the process. It's important to us to have everyone step with a positive sneaker forward in order for our City to grow as one.
