Hey, hello, hi.
Ever since my little-kid days, my time has been filled with a great love for animation. (Thus – my animation degree. Imagine that?) Many of those days were sat in front of the tv, watching my favourite yellow family, The Simpsons. Always one of the most incredibly scripted shows, with the most memorable and entertaining cast. I can even remember carrying around a little vinyl Simpsons suitcase filled with all of my favourite cassettes. (One of them being The Simpsons Sing The Blues album – anyone remember Do the Bartman?)
Bart and the gang were a huge part of 90s pop culture, and have continued to be internationally adored to this day. I may be getting older, but somehow I keep getting drawn back in to Springfield. (I now work at Fox – Need I say more?)
So when I bagged a wonderful invitation to the launch of the new Simpsons Converse range, I did a little jig. If you know me well (or even if you’ve only seen me twice in your life) you’ll know how much I love my Converse sneakers. I love them. Like L.O.V.E them.
The launch was awesome (with a kick-ass refreshment table) but the highlight was definitely the new footwear range. With three different designs to choose from, my pocket cried a little. I need all three. I NEED them.
They are available from today across South Africa at selected Cross trainer, Stuttafords, and Shesha stores. Sizes range from child to adult and prices range from R699.95 to R1199.95.
Thanks to Converse for the invite (and the goody bag) and congrats on the rad launch!
