This is a takkie for those of us who are more comfortable outside: in the back streets, side alleys, parking lots, concrete jungles, astroturf pitches and long stretches of tarmac.

Originally a tennis shoe, Converse’s Cons Skidgrip has a herringbone outsole that is street ready, with a firm grip.

Flexible, comfortable, low-key and with high-strength traction, this sneaker is designed for the body that doesn’t want to stay still.

It’s made to move with you, on any surface, anytime, anywhere. The shoes are priced at R699 a pair at most outlets where foot fashion is a must.
