SoleHeaven Sneaker Lounge opens


After 2 years of running only online, SoleHeaven has opened it’s doors for the first time in Newcastle. However, instead of opening a store, they have opened a sneaker lounge.

I’m guessing a sneaker lounge is a much more relaxed alternative to a store including friendly staff, quieter shop floor and good company, all of which is included at SoleHeaven. It’s situated slightly out of town, meaning you most likely to only get the more committed shopper in there (aka sneaker heads). The layout looks OG as hell with boxes lining the walls … it’s a sight that will make any sneaker fiend start to dribble with excitement.

If you are local, head down to the store and make them feel welcome in their new home. It’s rare to find independents opening doors at the moment, so let’s try our best to support them.

Big up to the guys over at Breaks of 10 for the lovely photos.

Opening Times:
Mon – Fri: 11:00 – 16:00
Sat – Sun: By appointment only
Unit 19/20, Hoults Yard, NE6 2HL

    It’s a really nice concept and looks well executed too.
