WAF. has now stepped into the shoe game in collaboration with South African Dakatos. The footwear is a modernized version of Dakotas’ traditional Hi-Shine moccasins used with merino wool socks. The classic Dakotas Hi Shine Loafer with a matte white leather upper is featured in the Dakotas x WAF collaboration. On the side of the shoe, the insole, and the box, it has a custom “WAF” logo. The Hi-Shine is available in three colourways that all contrast the white upper: emerald green, a deep navy, and heritage brown. A successful display of WAF’s vivid designs and contrasting colours seen in their products, which are typically juxtaposed with white design elements, is the lively colourways against the clean upper.
The history of the DAKOTAS brand is lengthy and rich. When DAKOTAS was first introduced in South Africa in 1980, the brand immediately captured the attention of the affluent consumer.
The docksider moccasin, which has angular features, high-fashion style, and excellent comfort, quickly gained popularity in South Africa and became an essential piece of clothing. Since those early days, DAKOTAS has not only been committed to enhancing a man’s appearance, but it has also succeeded in doing so while maintaining affordability. Today, the company offers robust lines for men, women, and kids. Wearing a pair of DAKOTAS is the most authentically South African fashion badge of honour there is. #Swipeleft to see more of the collaboration below:
