    More about Bathu

    Bathu means “shoes” in Kasi/Township slang. Created by Theo Baloyi, who orginally studied accounting, but left his lucrative job at PricewaterhouseCoopers. While working in finance he spent years working in the Middle East. Theo came back home and launched the sneaker brand Bathu in 2015 from an idea that triggered whilst he was waiting for his flight back to South Africa from Dubai. 

    Bathu Care

    Vodacom partnered with Bathu because both brands have the same vision, to provide jobs locally, whilst still caring for the community.  Bathu Care, is a corporate social investment project that provides school shoes to children in impoverished communities.
