CROCS Pavilion At Sole Dxb 2022

Crocs in different colours

Apparel Group’s leading footwear brand Crocs will be present at Sole DXB, the Middle East’s premier culture and lifestyle festival with a large pavilion presenting Salehe Bembury’s latest style and with cool customization activations for its fans. The space will be divided in two sections; one dedicated to the launch of an exclusive colorway of the Salehe Bembury Collection, and the other one intended to be a young and vibrant area where guests will be able to customize the iconic Classic Clogs designed by an Emirati artist using the Crocs printer. 

The Salehe Bembury Sasquatch colorway is the final launch moment for 2022 in collaboration with Crocs. This colorway will be exclusively available in the UAE, only at the Crocs Pavilion in Sole DXB. Salehe Bembury himself will be attending the event, to announce the launch of this exclusive colorway. The Crocs Pollex Clog by Salehe Bembury is an exploration of form and function that balances heritage with the most innovative mould in the shoe business. This is an entirely new direction for our Classic Clog, composed of 3 of Salehe’s signature fingerprints merged together, with dramatic concave ridges allowing for multi-directional traction. 

In the Crocs customization lab, guests will be able to choose from 6 designs to customize their Iconic Classic Clogs along with custom-made Jibbitz by using a Crocs printer. Guests will be able to see their Crocs being customized right there and then, giving the customization an experiential feeling. The 6 designs and Jibbitz have been created by an Emirati Artist, Maisoon Al Saleh highlighting elements in Al Saleh’s surroundings with a blend of sine waves such as palm trees, falcons, and architectural buildings. Maisoon presents the story of tolerance and human contact through the symbolic use of sine waves. Al Saleh disrupts the composition by leaving her subjects’ with colorful visual effects; in some pieces the background of the image, is erased by a television test pattern – a ubiquitous motif that is not only a quasi-visual representation of the sine wave, but also an universal and internationally recognisable point of reference. As the combination of the various sine waves creates a harmonic bond, the artist seeks to emphasise the importance of deepening the connection between different nationalities. 

Be sure to visit the Crocs Pavilion at Sole DXB from 9th to 11th December 2022, to get a pair of the exclusive Salehe Bembury’s Sasquatch colorway or the Iconic Classic Clogs customized with your favorite design.
