Just in time for summer, Grasshoppers is debuting new and trendy colourways with the Dax / Belle Moccasin which features a square moc toe, lace-up closure and crepe rubber sole. This Grasshoppers style is constructed as a Tubular Moccasin, due to the leather wrapping right around ones foot forming a tube shape – which in-turn offers extreme comfort to the user. Unique to the construction of the Moccasin, is that one single piece of leather forms the sides and the insole of each shoe; crafted in a time-honoured moccasin shoemaking tradition, quite literally made to last a lifetime.

Being fitted for a first pair of Grasshoppers is a rite of passage for countless South Africans, and for many; the relationship often starts at school. Beyond school days, the longevity of Grasshoppers and personal ties with such a brand is that whether old school or new, there is a pair that is perfectly suited for someone entering the job market, and even the fashion forward urbanite looking to take their aesthetic to new heights!

Grasshoppers have earned a reputation for being a classic, visually iconic and contemporary brand, focusing on traditional shapes to newer, trendier offerings. Designed without limitations and to be worn for long stretches of time, be it at work or at play, Grasshoppers SA opted to showcase the iconic Moccasin through a series of collaborations with local creatives and content creators.

One of these creators is creative duo ThemTwo; who drew inspiration from the South African brand being both comfortable and versatile. ThemTwo aimed to show how the shoe can be worn with almost different outfits, to various occasions. From the sun-soaked streets of Alex to the leafy shaded burbs, one can wear their Grasshoppers with style.

Traditionally regarded as a township icon, the duo saw it appropriate to take the shoe and style it with preppy looks reminiscent of the school kids that adorn the cultural hero. At one of the oldest and historical spots in the vibrant township of Alexandra, ThemTwo rock their ‘Grassies’ in front of the legendary Carpet Shop. The pair then moved to the leafy green burbs of Norwood to show the genuine versatility of Grasshoppers. Paired with custom suits and luxury bags in a retro setting, shows just how stylish the shoe can be. From all walks of life, wear Grasshoppers this summer!
