A Journey Born of Inspiration

Hailing from the vibrant township of Umlazi, our CEO & Co-Founder: Wandile Sibisi is quoted as saying “I, like many others, found inspiration in the stories of Theo Baloyi, founder of Bathu, and Lekau Sehoana, the visionary behind Drip. These local entrepreneurs demonstrated that it was possible to carve a niche in the South African sneaker industry. However, my personal journey led me to seek inspiration beyond borders. Growing up in the age of social media and the internet, I immersed myself in the global sneaker culture, particularly influenced by the captivating allure of American streetwear. The sight of my favorite musicians, actors, influencers, athletes, and content creators flaunting the latest Air Jordans and Yeezys ignited a deep love for the culture within me. Fueling this passion, I met my like-minded co-founders who shared my vision for RareStep—a brand that transcends boundaries and offers a truly premium South African online destination for sneaker enthusiasts and fashion connoisseurs.”
