Earlier this year, Complex magazine noted that sneaker culture had changed considerably. Having grown from an exciting sub-culture into a mundane mainstream activity, sneaker culture has become just another fast fashion trend.
Enter Thabiso Hadebe and Gent Sibuyi, who are killing conformity and redefining sneaker culture through their joint venture, Black Faff. They have been creating customised shoes and apparel since 2011, collaborated with Converse, and designed for local musicians such as Kahn Morbee and international superstars like rap trio Migos.
“The biggest role we play as customising artists is that we are able to give people something unique that allows their sneakers to reflect their personality or their brand,” said Hadebe.
