Why So Serious, South Africa? #WalkItOff @TomyTakkies

Hi Friends,

Let’s be honest: a lot of the time, living in South Africa is no joke. From crime and corruption to cash-in-transit heists and car accidents, us South Africans experience our fair share of adversity. It’s tough out here, and here’s the thing: if we don’t laugh about it, we’ll cry. So why take it so seriously? In the face of the ridiculous, the unpleasant and the outrageous, it’s up to us to seek the silver lining in all situations. For every serious scenario, you stumble across, there is an opportunity to either at the very least, shrug it off, or at the most, find the funny.

As South Africans, the best defense we have against despondency is our ever-enduring sense of humor. Spend five minutes on Twitter and you’ll quickly realize that no populous of people can see the funny side of things quite like we can. Any given meeting of the National Assembly is a better entertainment value than anything on Netflix.

From snoozing MPs in parliament and Doom Pastors to bamboozled SARS IT Chiefs, one thing is for sure: living in SA is never a dull moment. We’re all in this together, and the best way to survive it is with a good sense of humor and the right shoes to #WalkItOff in.

South Africa, please give me protection from yourself. Step up your sense of humor in a pair of Tomy Takkies and try not to take things so seriously.

About Tomy Takkies
Our story began in 1964 in Bata’s first production factory in Zimbabwe. Hard shoes were not working for our local market because of the dry climate and hard ground. The founding father of Bata developed a softer, canvas shoe and aptly named it after his son Tomy George Bata.
The impact a small, unknown brand would come to have on street culture and fashion in South Africa surpassed expectation. It was only a matter of time before the Tomy Originals became a classic. It spread like a fashion wildfire and our brand soon provided an identity for students, sportsman, school children, rebels, artists, your next door neighbor and everyone in between – it’s the classic, timeless look that shaped our brand early on that has South Africans wearing them with pride.
