Bang on trend for SS11, these unique and unisex trainers first launched back in 2009, to celebrate and promote the talent of African designers working around the world. Originally created using off-cuts and wastage fabric from the clothing range, the shoes are produced using a range of exclusive prints sourced globally, as well as fabrics from sustainable sources, including vintage wax prints.
Completely sustainable I’m OH! By Ohema Ohene’s biggest fan, and am particularly impressed with the ingenious design of the high-top trainers which come as a detachable ‘high top’ and base plimsolls. Each style has been named using popular Ashanti names such as OH! Kofi for boys, OH! Nana which is unisex and OH! Classic – which is exactly what it says on the tin.
Available in a plethora of vibrant colour ways, OH! By Ohema Ohene are stocked at MyAsho, and can be delivered within 24 hours so what are you waiting for?! Prices range from £28-£80.
