edit: most have risen in value in that collection of mine. I would sell some. because at a certain point they have become so expensive that wearing them then becomes a mental block tbh
I think your shoe collection is worth more than my car, pc, Mac and consoles combined :( I wish I had your money. Not the shoes though. You can keep those :p

Where can I get these nowadays in CPT?

PS. Same Nikkel on HSR?
They're available at quite a few places in the malls starting at about R1k for the Mexico on a good day to north of R2k for the Lifestyle range


Yep same Nikkel

I keep it simple.
I could never go fancy with shoes as I destroy them, max 4 months a pair and then they are wrecked. these are by far the best shoes (comfortable and durable).

Well who can debate the below

South African tekkie maker Theo Baloyi claims to be selling the most expensive sneaker in South Africa. His company, Bathu, has just launched a collaboration sneaker with car manufacturer Opel, with an apparent selling price of R365,900 a pair.

Does this come with a free OPC model for every pair you buy? :unsure:

In reality, it’s little more than a marketing stunt. Each pair of the R365,900 shoes comes with the keys to a new Opel Corsa GSi.

Ah that makes allot more sense. Any idea what they look like to get paired with Opel? Racing style shoe?
