The footwear show Sole Fashion, scheduled for Aug. 8-9, has been canceled over a delay in the lifting of the remaining Covid-19 related restrictions in the U.K. The next edition is due on Feb. 27-28, 2022.

The event, which is held in the Coventry Building Society Arena (formerly Ricoh Arena) in Coventry, was launched in February 2020 by Penny Robinson, former director of the Moda event. The show has not been held since its maiden edition because of Covid-19 restrictions. 

“While there is a strong appetite for a dedicated footwear and fashion event on favourable dates, we must be sensible and take this difficult decision in light of the recent events. We look forward to better times” and returning in February, Robinson said.
