sawa is a stylish sneaker brand from ethiopia. made with dignity and pride, the brand believes the best revolution for africa is the industrial revolution, and by producing its shoes right there, it contributes to this objective. sawa's a/w 2012 collection features a series of fresh new styles we see you contently rocking around your block, wherever you live. the current lookbook was shot in a derelict railway station in tha capital addis ababa where once trains departed for the coastal city of djibouti. the premises provide the perfect backdrop for the vintage-inspired shots of the shoes. shown here are three models that we particularly like. sawa's a/w 2012 collection is available at select stores across the planet, including revolver [san francisco], j.crew [new york], dover street market [london], quarter [hong kong] and tomorrowland [tokyo], but can also be ordered online.
