Last summer I was in South Africa and during that time I was able to visit three different cities, Cape Town , Johannesburg and Pretoria.I had an opportunity to witness the growing streetwear culture that exists in these cities and each city has its own identity. I won’t get into that now but from what I saw Johannesburg and Cape Town has more advanced streetwear culture. I managed to visit quite a number of streetwear stores .The stores that I went to stock popular international brands,Adidas, Vans, Nike etc and local streetwear brands.Here is my brief introduction to South African streetwear scene gathered from the two weeks that I was there. I’m going back this Christmas and I hope to meet up with people involved in the scene and explore South African streetwear market.You can read about my trip HERE
