Inside the Culture of Brave
Catherine's Brave Story
Boldness is a way of living.
It is the willingness to step up and take risks, to be courageous enough to act innovatively and confidently embrace your identity.
To become it, you have to believe it.
Culture of Brave’s Bold Runner is breaking down the barriers of fear and mobilizing the authentic purpose of the unfiltered, brave and bold individual.
A modern edge on a classic runner from the 80’s, the Bold Runner uses soft nylon and suede uppers combined with sleek leather detailing to take your street style to the next level. The chunky rubber sole adds a contrasting textural element and is a flexible fit that moves with your feet.
The lightweight upper provides a breathable and comfortable fit, while the cushioned midsole provides lasting support with every bold step you take. The sneakers are also presented in a wide range of colourways to match your personal style, complementing the way you choose to express yourself as you hit the streets.
This is a story of legacy.
A story that inspires you to
Step Up, Be Bold.

It’s time to live the Culture Of Brave.
For the South African launch of Culture of Brave, we engaged a few Brand Ambassadors who embody the brand. Team members identified individuals who demonstrated courage and moved forward despite challenges, no matter the circumstance. Our ambassadors come from a diverse range of backgrounds and work in a variety of industries and on a wide range of projects. Every individual has a brave story to share, and as a brand, we would like to hear them. Taking courageous steps to achieve success is something we appreciate. The Culture Of Brave sneakers are named after the attributes of courageous individuals. To us, it is important that our audience can relate to their favourite sneaker and share their brave story of overcoming adversity. We support those who are resilient, courageous, and free-spirited.
Courage pulses inside you. Every step you take is a step forward - forging the path to your own individual distinction of success.
