Now an integral part of sneaker culture in Europe, it is a bit difficult to believe that the first Solemart started just five years ago within the ballroom of Berlin's Ellington Hotel. That inaugural event saw a turnout of a few hundred visitors, respectable though just a morsel when you compare to Solemart Berlin 2013 that took place over the weekend, where over 3000 attendees flocked to smart Center Berlin. With smart Car by BARBUS as the backdrop, all of the major brands from adidas, Nike, PUMA, to Reebok and Supra took part. In addition, plenty of notable collectors looking to unload some of their stash, customizers on hand to showcase their latest creations, and a few novices searching for a way to start their own collections. Certainly organizer Hikmet Sugoer, his boutique Solebox, and Solemart participants deserve congratulations for the event's overwhelming success. Meanwhile, check out a video and photo recap on the event after the jump...
