SEĒ|| 18 South African Shoe Brands You Didn't Know About

Once upon a time when the richest man in South Africa, Johann Rupert, used to conduct his yearly interviews on eNCA, he was asked, "why don't big businesses create more employment since they have an unlimited budget"??.....

.....and he answered that big businesses don't really create many jobs as much as people think but rather, it's those SMEs that are the catalyst for more employment and if the government wants to see the unemployment curve going down, they should start supporting SMEs more

Now recently there's been a post making rounds on the social media streets, showing 18 shoes made in SA by fellow entrepreneurs in the SME world.

After the post was shared, it quickly received a lot of reactions and shares from many people in the comments section. A lot of people were saying this is really great to see, it really shows that the country is moving in the right direction by creating our own brands.

Some also highlighted the importance of showing support to these brands so that they could stand the test of time and start opening up more stores around the country. This in turn will create the badly needed jobs that everyone's searching for, because unemployment is sitting at a staggering 30%.
