All the sneaker fiends in and around Berlin had only one place to go on Sunday: Solemart! The annual collectors market for all of us crazy sneaker fans is hosted by the most popular brands for kicks and supported by some of Berlins finest shops (Overkill whaddup!).
It’s not a flea market, mind you; some of the “rest stock” and special editions are solely for the very eager collectors. As for the ladies, well, I have mini feet. It’s already tough to find the shoes I want in usual retail, at Solemart — nearly impossible.
While not the most spectacular shopping experience, I have to give up some credit for the participating hosts for chosing such a creative location, the Planetarium in Prenzlauer Berg. Though a bit too dark for my taste, it had a great atmosphere and setting. I’d never been inside the building so that’s a first for me.
