All of the sprinkles

We all thought colour blocking was making its way out until Sho Madjozi hit the scene and gave the trend a whole new spin. Whether you’re serious about your colour blocking or you aren’t really sure how to put this look together these multicolour sprinkle kicks are perfect. The actual sneakers are plain white which means they match almost anything. The sprinkled trimming gives these takkies a unique edge over any other plain white shoe.

Function and style

Not all takkies are actually made for active wear. If you’re going jogging, walking, working out or dancing, then these sporty sneakers are a great all-purpose takkie. As far as quality sneakers go, they aren’t too hard on your budget either.

Metallic trim sneakers

Girly takkies don’t have to be boring. Not only are these sneakers blingy, but the trimming is also rose gold. Because the shoes are only trimmed in metallic pleather which is also strategically placed so it doesn’t crack and wear out with walking, these sneakers should stay in good condition for a long time.

The perfect platform

Every 90’s kid remembers the iconic Spice Girl platform sneakers. You either had a pair and loved them or loved them and wanted a pair. The platform sneaker is yet another 90s trend we’re glad to see again. Combine the extra height offered by stilettos with the ease of wedges and the comfort of takkies and you have the perfect shoe.
