Sneakers are beating every other fashion item in terms of popularity these days, and everyone seems to be a sneakerhead with a growing collection. We’re going to take a look at a few cool kicks you can pick up that have had their prices cut!
Adidas Stan Smith – R999
This is one of the staples in the sneaker world that pretty much everyone has and will recommend you get. While it may seem like everyone’s doing it (because they are) the reason why the minimal white sneaker is everywhere is due to its versatility. It goes with pretty much everything, from formal to casual and everything in between, so if there’s one pair you’re going to pick up in the next while something along these lines is probably as good an option as you’re going to find.

Asics Gel Lyte III NS – R1,299
A persistent trend for the last couple of years has been the acceptance of running shoes into the casual wardrobe, and it’s been a massive component of the athleisure style. Old-school running shoes made by brands like Asics, Reebok, and New Balance aren’t just for working up a sweat in, nowadays they’re about as fashionable as it gets. Get them at TotalSports!
Nike Zoom Structure 20 – R1,599
An important distinction between form and function is necessary when it comes to running shoes, though. Because of how trendy they are a lot of shoes that may look like they’re made for road-running actually don’t have the support or materials necessary to be used for actual sport and exercise. It might seem kind of trivial, but to avoid sketchy ankles and wonky knees down the line make sure that if you’re going to be getting shoes to train in that they’re built for that purpose, not just to make you look good.

New Balance 247 – R999
New Balance’s classic 247 sneaker is that trusty, everyday sneaker that you can wear with just about anything. The shoe is made with mesh materials and a lightweight and responsive REVlite midsole, so it’s comfy and light, but still retains that noticeable sneaker presence. Get them at Sportscene!
Puma Ignite EvoKnit Fade – R1,739
Another entry into the athleisure category are these Puma EvoKnit runners. Producing athletic footwear with collars has been a mainstay in some sports, like American Football, and has recently been adopted by soccer boot manufacturers as well, and has made its way to fashion footwear too. If you’re looking for something that stands out from the crowd this will definitely get people’s eyes on your feet. Get them at Sportscene!
Adidas Superstar 80s – R999
This is another classic, but one that’s got a little more edge than the Stan Smiths. The Adidas Superstars were originally brought to mainstream attention by American rap group Run DMC in the 80s and has been a popular mainstay in the sneaker world for a couple of decades now.

New Balance 520 – Vintage Blue – R1,099
The suede-covered 520 puts a fresh spin on a classic sneaker originally released in the ‘70s. Maintaining the minimalist feel and commitment to quality used in the prototype, this shoe is cut from premium suede and mesh to provide comfort and style. The sleek silhouette and heritage-inspired details come together to create the prefect mix of old and new you can represent on the day-to-day. Get them at ShelfLife!
