South African Sneaker Brand Vosk Launches Its Local Movement


VOSK is more than just a sneaker brand. Beyond trendy footwear and apparel, the company is striving to make a lasting impact with their signature ethos -‘Imprint Africa’. What does that mean? It means, wherever they go, they try to help someone along the way.

And in doing so, VOSK has launched its local movement which aims to grow and combat global shoelessness. Challenging global shoelessness is a task for more than one African. That’s why Emmanuel “Manny” Ohonme, Nigerian founder of Samaritan’s Feet, and Wesley Vos, South African founder of VOSK, joined forces. Both share a passion for helping to bring an end to the spread of foot-borne diseases and infections derived from 1.5 billion kids going barefoot. Manny himself was once such a boy and the problem is rife across South Africa and Africa as a whole.

The goal is twofold. One, by purchasing a pair of VOSK shoes, we’ll give a pair of shoes to a child in need. Two, we understand that kids need moral support and inspiration to go with a pair of bright new shoes. So together, across countries, we do our best to give them both. And with your help, we can vastly increase the spread of transformation, not diseases.
