JOHANNESBURG. (November 15,  2016) – This is for those of us that are more comfortable in those non – places: back streets, side alleys, parking lots, concrete jungles, astro turfs, and stretches of tarmac. Originally a tennis shoe, the Cons Skidgrip has a Herringbone outsole that is street-ready. Flexible, comfortable, low-key and high traction, this sneaker is for the body that doesn’t want to stay still. It’s made to move with you, on any surface, anytime, anywhere.
