Bathu has a staff compliment of 36 people plus a website for easy online ordering of his spectacular sneaker range – making Bathu, which has since become a must-have item for fashion aficionados – not only in South Africa but also around the globe accessible to all.
In collaboration with Bathu, Opel SA has launched what they dub South Africa’s most expensive sneaker priced at R365 900. With only 80 pairs produced, the exclusive GSi Limited Edition sneaker comes with a new Corsa GSi in four colours for free.
