Short Story

WALK FRESH

Walk Fresh, founded by Lethabo Mokoena, is a boutique sneaker cleaning and shoe-care service providing the best sneaker cleaning, suede/nubuck refurbishing and maintenance, shoe shining and Repairing services for all footwear brands, makes and materials.

WHY?

We want to rewrite the township narrative. We want people to take township businesses seriously. To us, WALK FRESH is a home that provides a space for us to build one another and circulate positive conversation. In this home, we remind ourselves about the importance of contributing positively to the world. WALK FRESH is our hope for the opportunities unseen, and a hub filled with possibilities for every youth in our country. Our passion to create a brighter, more inspired community is what drives us and what informs our business model and brand strategy.

TRACTION

We have been in business for two years & currently employ six full time staff, all youth and 2 of which are black female. We wash between 450 & 500 shoes a month. We have worked with KIWI Shoe Polish, J & B Hive and have done activations with Nike. Our Founder, Lethabo, was lucky enough to win the best Youth Entrepreneur Award from NYDA this year.

WHY ARE WE RAISING?

We are raising to improve our security features which will bring our business insurance down drastically. This saved cost would allow us to plough more money back into building our business.

REWARD FOR CONTRIBUTING?

For Our Gauteng people, Get 3 sneakers of your choice washed the award winning way. For people outside Gauteng, contribute so we can see where we should go next!
