Ap­parel brand Dick­ies hosted a funky event to launch its new Evolve takkie on Thurs­day night. The gig was hosted at King Kong in Troyeville in down­town Jozi and guests ar­riv­ing on time had the op­por­tu­nity to watch the sun set over the bustling Jozi CBD.

The new Evolve takkie pro­vides a wider, com­fort­able fit, durable waxed laces and its uniquely Dick­ies re­in­forced toe­cap, as well as nickel-free me­tal trims, a Dick­ies in­ner lin­ing and gen­uine Dick­ies sole. The new range is a va­ri­ety of hip and funky takkies for the con­tem­po­rary cool per­son, or the long­time Dick­ies fan.

Guests got the chance to be the first to see the new Evolve takkies, which were placed on dis­play in gallery-type style through­out the venue, while they sipped on drinks. They also had the op­por­tu­nity to en­gage with the history of the fa­mous brand, but not for too long as for­mal­i­ties were kept to a min­i­mum.

The event was a laid-back af­fair, with guests min­gling freely and tak­ing pic­tures with each other.

A few well-known faces at the event in­cluded Sk­watta Kamp’s Le­bo­gang “Shugas­makx” Moth­ibe, mem­bers of BoyznBucks, model and Wool­worths Au­tumn/Win­ter face Sarah Langa Heaton and blog­ger Jerry Mo­fo­keng.
