The Moyo 1's a tribute to John Ngazimbi

The Moyo 1's a sneaker by the rad black kids

OUR SECOND SNEAKER in this pack! The Moyo 1's named after my grandpa, John Ngazimbi. Every Ndebele person has a totem, and our families totem 'Moyo' means heart. The implications of having a totem means, traditionally, you cannot eat that animal, or in this case organ (animal). 

The legacy of my grandfather pops up every now and then. Inasmuch as I am proud to be from where I am from, learning abount who he was is... difficult. Last year my little sister found a quote of his in a book, were he was cited as an intellectual.

The second sneaker in this pack is dedicated to the drive in all of us. The ambiguity of where we get it from and it's a salute to those who make up who we are.

THIS IS A PROTOTYPE PREVIEW. The real colorway will be different from this version.
