From our humble beginnings back in 2009, Soleheaven has progressed from an initial concept to a diverse team of dedicated sneaker-heads, housed in the heart of the city of Newcastle-Upon-Tyne. Through years of commitment, the Soleheaven brand has grown to be exemplary for independence in Newcastle and for the independent sneaker-market, which Soleheaven has been dedicated to give something back to since we first developed our roots.
The products we select are not just based on the surface aesthetic, but for the heritage and passion behind the brands
The global sneaker game has always drawn people together from a vast array of international cultures and backgrounds. From skateboarding to breakdancing, BMX to street art, sneakers are unifying, bringing like-minded individuals together with a mutual passion for on-point footwear and urban trends.
We took inspiration from these aspects of sneaker history when we designed our bespoke store. From our initial research and ideas, we incorporated as much of this background culture into the design process. A basketball hoop adorns the wall, our central seat is crafted with Canadian maple from a Basketball court, and the front desk has taken inspiration from skatepark quarter pipes, with one solid curve made from Baltic Birch wood. The concept is completed with concrete finishes, which draw out the urban aspect of our city centre store. The Cash desk is topped with hand poured polished down concrete, and the final piece is a one of a kind 3 x 6 ft concrete block, that holds our company logo in 5mm laser cut steel.
Our product range is hand curated, and forever changing. The products we select are not just based on the surface aesthetic, but for the heritage and passion behind the brands, and the thought processes put into each pair.
Combine this with our relaxed environment, knowledgeable, accommodating staff and our essential collection of lifestyle products, and you can truly immerse yourself in sneaker culture right here in the heart of the city.
