Evolution of the Dickies takkie
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.
