As you might have learnt shoes are a big deal for us. We believe in walking your way into confidence and that is not possible if aren't fashioning the perfect pair of kicks. 

Our shoe queen, Stacey Norman is always on point with her kicks. From style to comfort, she ticks all the boxes. 

We have found the perfect pair of sneakers that matches her personality. 

In a video shared to TikTok by user Zee, we see the most amazing pair of sneakers from Woolworths. 

She shows off a white and baby blue-coloured sneaker that still has the tag on. Over and above the price tag, there is a tag that says, "Colour Changing Shoe". 

The price is R379.00. But that's not the unique part about the shoe. 

When the TikToker takes the sneakers outside into the sunlight they change colour. 

Just enough character and personality that could live up to Stacey...

People were happy to share their comments, check what they had to say below. 

  • "The question is how many times will they change colour until the colour becomes permanent?"
  • "I got the same from Nike over 6 months ago and they still proper. They are UV reactive"

It was at this point that our sneaker game deflated as quickly as it inflated. Scrolling through the comments revealed that these were kids shoes and we only available up to size 6. 

Bompp, Bompppp...What a let down.
