Converse x Sandton City (GIVEAWAY)
Last week I told you about my introduction to the Converse brand when I still lived in Durban and was younger (then what I am now). The brand really is the epitome of style and comfort. What else will let each and every person be able to showcase their individual style and personality? The answer: very few clothing and shoe brands.
Living in Johannesburg has had me be exposed to so many different types of people. From sporty to girly to hip to eccentric, what I noticed with each and every one of them was their common appreciation for one brand: Converse. It’s rare to see a brand have such an appeal to such a wide and vast audience. It’s always funny to think about how different a band rocker is to a self-titled geek. Oh well, each of them can rock their pair of Converse shoes like no one else can.
Individual style is something which is so important. I remember a blog post I wrote awhile back which remains one of my most read pieces. It focuses on how you should never be ashamed of who you are and what you stand for. I really think Converse promotes this image. I mean, I quite enjoy how you can get your own custom Chucks – like hello, can someone get me a Nicki Minaj-inspired pair please! Being able to express yourself without being judged is something I hope everyone can eventually experience at a stage in their life.
Without getting too deep – we’ll leave that for another time – I would like to say how excited I am for Converse to be opening a store in Sandton City on Tuesday, 8 December. I love Sandton City – it’s practically my second home. Like, want to know where I am… chances are I’m at Sandton City, ha ha. It’s exciting to know Converse will be bringing their awesomeness to one of my favourite malls in the area! I can’t wait to see all the epic and cool details they’re bound to have in the place.
I actually would like to have you guys view the new store too before anyone else! The opening is on Tuesday 8 December at 18:00 at Sandton City and I have one double ticket to give away! Yes, you can join in on the fun by just commenting on the latest post on my Facebook page. Simple!
