One of Phoenix's biggest sneaker events, Heated Sole Summit, took place on October 4 at Bourgade Catholic High School.

The fourth Heated Sole Summit event brought sneakerheads from all over the state together for a cause, and to buy, sell, or trade their rare kicks.

"The money goes back to the athletic programs to help some of the students who have trouble affording the equipment or transportation," says Ritesh Khatri, the founder of Heated Sole and athletic trainer/director at the high school. "This year, we're also giving money back to a breast cancer organization, so there's a lot of pink."

Here's our look at five of the coolest sneakers we saw at the event.

We expected to see a lot more Yeezys at Heated Sole, but a couple tables still had them to show off.

Upcoming Events

5. Nike Air Yeezy 2 "Solar Red"

Count us among the minority that finds the Yeezy "Solar Red" colorway significantly more appealing than "Red October." We're definitely not willing to sell our souls for either, but there's no doubt these were some of the most sought-after kicks at the event. Only a couple of tables had them, and prices were through the roof, but we're willing to bet that someone picked up their grails by grabbing these. For those wondering, we didn't see any Red Octobers while we were there.
