100 Beautiful Experiences

Looking for the latest in sizzling hot sneakers? We don’t like to brag, but we reckon we’ve got the finest stores in town – all under one roof, making it easy to shop around for the sneaker that’s perfect for you. Here are just some of the stops to shop:

From the Nike Air Force One available at The Cross Trainer, to Adidas’ wide range of sport and casual treads, including the just-launched Manchester United Ultraboost, and Office London’s exclusive editions, such as the mustard-and-yellow rimmed-sole Converse, there’s something for everyone. Even big feet are catered for at Superga, which has sizes up to a men’s 15!

The Sportscene experience is unmissable. In the large, vibey store playing party music, you’ll find the latest drop stationed in prime exhibition position as ‘sneaker of the week’. And, at the Nike store, it’s worth trying on a pair of trainers with the FlyEase tightening system. This technology will blow your mind.

For extra foot loving, check out the new Falke arch-support socks at The Athlete’s Foot, and the environmentally friendly Sneaker Lab products at Total Sports, which include an odour protector and sneaker wipes.

Photographed and illustrated by a group of young South African talents, many of our experiences are unique to our hood and can be found nowhere else on the planet!

Every visit to the V&A Waterfront is an opportunity to discover a different part of the city, learn about our heritage, source the best products, dine on the most exquisite fare and connect with friends and family in a safe and happy environment.
