New from New Balance

We’ve got some amazing new kicks from New Balance

1) M997PR Authors Collection Made in the USA


Originally designed as a part of the 1991s 990 series, New Balance have brought back the classic 90s shape, paying homage to the original American styles.  Made in USA is an authentic limited range that is produced with superior quality and craftsmanship, in fact, factory workers and producers had to re-learn how to make this pair as they would have in the 90s. Local labour and craftmanship does not come cheap, as you can imagine. You are buying a product that is pretty much top-of-the range in terms of crafted kicks.

2) New Balance REVlite CRT300 Pack

This is a re-introduction of the 70′s silhoutte partnered with the classic mesh and suede with the additional REVlite sole. These light and versatile sneaks echo of former days, back from the future, with off-white tones and bold blues.

Winter Warmers

It is usually during this time that we tend to get prematurely excited for the ebbing summer months. The sunshine teases with its warmth, while the ambient air is reminding you that it is still cold. These sorts of weather conditions make us vulnerable to contracting the symptoms of a Joburg winter, flu, extreme dryness and the cold night shivers. Here are some top tips for getting through the remainder of winter in top form.

1) Prepare

Dress in layers that you can strip off during the day as it starts to heat up. Always carry a warm top with you to protect you from any unexpected gusty and frosty days.

2) Moisturise

Joburg, and winter in general for that matter, is always dryer. Your skin cracks and becomes increasingly more sensitive. Lips, don’t forget to your protect your lips with a salve, not with petroleum.

3) Drink up

Keep hydrated and warm with lots of water and hot beverages.

4) Stay Warm

Warm & Glad is an unbelievable warm space that receives the radiant rays from the rising sun. Come and visit us for the perfectly cosy warmth of our cafe.
