Karabo Poppy x Sneaker LAB

Karabo Poppy x Sneaker LAB

We aspire to align ourselves with young artists, visionaries and the culture they represent, which is why the Sneaker LAB Artist Series is back. In our third instalment we’ve partnered with Karabo Poppy for the launch of our collaborative collection. Moriri Waka, meaning hair in Sesotho, is inspired by Braamies with the good hair, and youth cultures’ desire to self-express. To celebrate, we’ll be hosting a 1st Thursday event at our flagship store in Braam 7 June. It’s all about hair, so we’ll be bringing The Faded Mason; barber Jason Versfeld to the LAB for three days of free fades. We’ll also be hosting DJ duo, 'OH THOSE GUYS’ and HellFire will be on standby to keep you refreshed.
