As an adventure brand Sapmok create a variety of hand-crafted items such as boots, shoes, bags, belts, slippers and flip flops. So for me, being the down to earth kind of gal I am, I absolutely enjoy their shoe range which I would describe as comfortable and very easy to wear.
Sapmok have some of the best cobblers in the country and with all the creativity that flows in the factory, they can customise and create your perfect shoe and the best part is they cater not only for adults but kids as well.
They cut, measure and stitch everything from scratch which are crafted by their cobblers and use only the best quality materials inclusive of their leather, which is sourced from the best (and most ethical) tanneries in South Africa.
The brand was created by Werner Winterboer in 2015. He was born and raised in Pretoria and after studying BComm Logistics in Stellenbosch he pursued his dream to start his own Modern Africa Adventure brand. The name Sapmok comes from the word Kompas (compass in Afrikaans) written backwards. Growing up Werner and his friends used to enjoy writing everything backwards so this is how he came up with the brand name.
What I’ve enjoyed most about wearing my own Sapmok’s is that besides it being comfortable the stunning pops of colour makes each outfit so much fun to wear.
The headquarters are located in Pretoria and as a client you are welcome to visit them and choose the best Sapmok to suit you.
