Sneakers, trainers, kicks, webs, strides, soles, creps, beaters, trabs or trainees, whatever you call your footwear, there is a particular tribe who are obsessive about theirs… Sneaker enthusiasts are attached to their possessions unlike any other conscious community. From the birth of the Terrace Casual in Liverpool, UK, to today’s designer latest ‘drop’, Sole-Zine is a poster-zine dedicated to documenting British Trainer Culture. This ongoing research project acts as a social documentary archive, preserving subcultures, raising awareness of specific artisanal craftspeople, materials, techniques, and process, adding fresh discourse to a field of research under-represented in academia. Sole-Zine investigates the unique seekers and highlights this much-loved fashion area giving rise to the tribes and cohesive socio-groups who define and are defined by values and tensions around status, belonging, and the need for individuality: Obsession, Style, and Place.

The Sole-Zine 07 ULTRA Community exhibition at LacesOut 26th November 2022 offered an opportunity to showcase Volume 07 (the collector and community issue) and participate in photographing, recording and documenting the Ultra Community as part of a one day live experience at LacesOut Liverpool, the largest trainer festival in the North of England.
