Growing up, I always remember my sister being a fan of sports clothing brands. Due to her interest in the style, it was only natural that I acquired an interest in it too. Living in Durban it seemed like a natural pairing too: strolling down the beach promenade in a great pair of sneakers. A family favourite was always Converse, both stylish and durable, their shoes were worth every Rand and cent.
Do you want to hear something exciting? Converse is opening two specialty retail stores in South Africa! The first will open this week on 2 December at Gateway Theatre of Shopping in Durban. The second store will open its doors on 8 December at Sandton City in Johannesburg. I know many of you will be counting down because this will be Converse’s official stores in the country!
Expect to see limited edition collections, premium footwear, apparel and accessories never before so widely available in South Africa. The highly sought-after Chuck II sneakers will also be available in these stores! Sigh, that’s the definition of sneaker style right there!
Over 100 different styles for men, women and children will be on offer including Chuck Taylor All Star, Jack Purcell, CONS, Converse by John Varvatos as well as other premium footwear collaborations. With so much on offer, there’s no excuse to not step out in style, right?
I have some great news, I’m giving away two sets of double tickets to the Durban opening of the Converse store at Gateway! All you have to do is head over to my Facebook page and comment on the pinned post telling me who you would take with you and how much fun you’ll have! Promise to send me a selfie or two on the night of fun which starts at 18:00! Don’t worry Jo’burg, your turn to join in on the fun will come soon!
