One Star Classic Suede

In the ‘70s, the One Star sneaker was designed for basketball. Then skateboarding happened and the sneaker was given a new reason to exist. These days sneakers have even more reason for their being, they are a core fashion staple in anyone’s closet. The One Star Classic Suede Sneaker has been re-imagined with unbeatable street style and has been crafted with smooth suede in colours anyone would love to get on their feet.

The “Pink Glow” consists of a suede upper and is contrasted with white detailing on the sole, laces, lining and the solitary star on the sides of the sneaker. The “Cyan” blue is just as rich in colour.

This awesome sneaker features a smooth suede upper for comfort and durability, an Ortholite® insole for amazing cushioning, a vulcanized rubber sole for traction and of course the statement solitary star. These are the sneaks to rock this summer and can be worn by anyone from your hipster grandma to the skater kids at their local park. With the freshest look and feel these are the sneaker to look hot in this summer.

 

The sneakers will be available in Selected Retailers from the 23rd August 2017 at a retail price of R1199, offering the option or two colours, a vibrant Cyan or Pink.
