SneakMe runs until Friday, 14 October 2022.
Calling all sneakerheads! Say hello to SneakMe, the largest sneaker event in Saudi Arabia which is currently underway in Riyadh.
The two-week homegrown festival is a celebration of all things sneakers and streetwear and is the largest of its kind to take place in the Kingdom. So, if you know your Nike Airs from your Yeezy’s, then get yourself down to Ar Rihab in Ad Diriyah ASAP.
The inaugural SneakMe event looks to celebrate the newfound creativity and optimism of Saudi Arabia through a combination of art, fashion, and live music.
The event will showcase some of the most celebrated global and regional brands retailing sneakers, apparel and accessories, including Asics, Birkenstock, Diesel, Les Benjamins, Presentedby, Puma and The Giving Movement.
SneakMe also features a one-of-a-kind museum showcasing rare pairs of kicks that will also play host to the very first auction in the region.
When it comes to live entertainment, we’ve been told to expect performances from local and international DJs and hip-hop artists, including Mr Shef Codes and SkinnyG. The site will also feature a basketball court featuring world-class stunt acts and freestyle performances.
At SneakMe, there will also be live panel talks, masterclasses and workshops covering sneaker care, customisation and live graffiti. For those in search of food there will be a street food market, whilst those looking to relax will appreciate the on-site wellness area.
SneakMe is open daily from 4pm to midnight. Tickets are priced at SAR50 and are available here.
