Feiyue, the popular shoe brand, has announced that it will be closing down in South Africa.
The shoe brand announced on social media that it was withdrawing from the country, with a huge amount of dismay, but with no specific reason, although the company did release a statement via its Facebook page.
“We have unfortunately taken the decision to close Feiyue South Africa down. This includes our Midrand store, Braamfontein store and the online site, which has been closed for the past few weeks. We want to thank you for your past business and appreciate all the support we have received over the past years.”
Feiyue shoes had become the go-to brand for trendy, young South African guys over the last few years. I can recount many a braai, beach party and picnic, where at least one person was wearing a pair of trendy sneakers. He was always the coolest guy there. Fact.
It will be a sad loss for many a man in South Africa but sadly all good things in life do come to an end. We wish all those who were involved well, they have given us much happiness over the years.
