SoleSpace is pleased to present a special Playoffs Edition of the Dubz Against The World art show, featuring more than 27 artists from around the globe. Hosted on Warriors Ground in downtown Oakland, the show is free and open to the public Tuesday through Saturday 12-7pm at our 1714 Telegraph Avenue gallery and sneaker boutique.
We'll be posting more images from the show every day. They are all available for purchase at the store or you can message us via Instagram. Also available are numerous Warriors-themed tees, socks, hats and more.
This groundbreaking art show is curated by Conscious Basketball and co-produced with Kitzy Studios. The first installment of the show took place in San Francisco for three days at Somarts Cultural Center.
By day, SoleSpace is one of the premiere lifestyle footwear shops on the West Coast, and by night we are one of the Bay Area's most dynamic event venues.
A multi-year winner of "Best Shoe Store" by the East Bay Express, SoleSpace was founded in November 2012 by Favianna Rodriguez and Jeff Perlstein.

Now, these photographs, taken by Sarah Craig, are on view at SoleSpace (1714 Telegraph Ave., Oakland) in an exhibition titled after the project..."
Last week we opened up our doors as a Community Healing Center where folks could come to express their feelings through art about the verdict in the Mike Brown/Darren Wilson case from Ferguson.
Journalists Jun Stinson and Dena Takruri produced this piece for AJ+ featuring some of the art that was produced as a backdrop for their interviews.
Wow! SoleSpace was named "Best Soles with Soul" in the annual "Best of The Bay" issue of the SF Bay Guardian, published 10/15/14.
"Yes, you can buy pretty shoes at SoleSpace - but there is so much more to this downtown Oakland storefront than retail offerings. Take for example the community-based events that draw young, creative, diverse crowds into the shoe store's doors..."
This comes right on the heels of winning "Best Shoe Store" and "Best Arts/Retail Combo" in the East Bay Express' annual poll!
Thanks for all the love. We'll keep trying to improve, you keep telling us what we can do better.
