Lobela Skate Zambezi CW

$ 150.00 $ 265.00

The Lobela Skate shoes are named after my grandmother's ancestral home. MY grandmother lived till 100 and passed recently. She has now transitioned to an ancestor, and the place we believe our ancestors reside is their ancestral home. 

My grandmother was a teacher, and coincidentally the kindest person I have ever met. She had an abundance of empathy, and wisdom, and this manifested itself in the most curious, ever present, non-judgemental person you had ever met.

To name this shoe after my grandmother is to credit her with exactly where I am now, and where the brand is because she fought against all odds to get an education. So much of this journey has been guided and inspired by how much she fought to make her descendants dreams come true. 

This colorway Zambezi is names after the fourth longest river in Africa. This river houses one of the wonders of the world the Victoria Falls. The Zambezi River features class 5 rapids like: Stairway to Heaven, Oblivion and Gnashing Jaws of Death.
