Royal Rotations: featuring Justin Ronné – The Bizniz Blog

0

Welcome to our latest edition of “Royal Rotations” featuring Justin Ronné. Where we feature and chat with the coolest sneakerheads in South Africa.

Name:

  • Justin Ronné     

City:

  • Cape Town, South Africa

Occupation:

  • Designer

Royal Rotations, The Bizniz Blog, Feature, Sneakers, NIce Kicks, Highsnobiety, Complex, Fashion, Cape Town, South Africa

How many pairs of sneakers do you currently own?

  • I don’t count, but it is well over 200 pairs.

What are your top three holy grail sneakers of all time?

  • Original releases of the Nike Air Force 1 Low (1983), Nike Air Jordan XII ‘Flu Game’ (1997) & the Nike Air Total Max Uptempo (1997)

What got you into sneaker collecting in the first place?

  • My love for basketball as a child was monumental in my future interest in footwear as well as fashion choices. Hip Hop played a big part too, one of my idols – NBA Hall of Famer & rapper Shaquille O’Neal had some dope tracks out in the 90s with members of A Tribe Called Quest & The Notorious B.I.G. The big Shaqtus had some crazy signatures with Reebok and it left an impression on me at a very young age.

What is your favorite way to style a pair of kicks with an outfit?

  • The combo must be communicating – I like to match outfits and kicks. If my kicks have straps I normally don’t tie them – I like to be comfortable.

If you could only wear one pair of sneakers for the rest of your life, which silhouette and colorway would you choose?

  • Give me a premium buttery leather pair of white on white Nike Air Force 1 Lows. It goes with everything, its hard-wearing, comfortable and looks clean.

What is your ultimate favorite sneaker brand and why?

  • No surprise here folks. I think for me it all boils down to design & innovation. Nike is where they are because of looking at things differently from everyone else. They were the rebels. They out researched, out designed, out innovated and out marketed every body else. Their roster of footwear designers are some of the most iconic designers of our time, period.

What are your go-to sneaker stores to shop the latest drops?

  • Lemkus or Nike.com

Last question, checks or stripes?

  • But I have a lot of love for stripes. I have quite a few in my collection, I am a fan. Honestly I am not a hater of other brands, I think every brand has something that interests me, I’m just a true lover of footwear in general.

The innovative training app suggests daily running, boxing, ballet, strength, Pilates as well as high intensity interval (HIIT) and low intensity interval (LIIT) workouts uniquely curated to fit the individual’s need and lifestyle, and to motivate them to reach their fitness goals.

Fitness fans who sign up for the app on Google Play or the App store choose a goal from Speed & Endurance; Lean & Fit; Flexibility & Balance; or Strong & Ripped to enable the app to recommend daily workouts. Users select a trainer from a list that includes Takkies and Shane, and are provided with a session overview, with videos of the trainer demonstrating the correct workout positions. Users can connect to their Spotify or Apple Music playlists to train to their favourite jams, invite friends to join to keep each other motivated and schedule workouts for a specific day and time. The tracking feature in the app also enable users to keep track of all their training in one place.

Takkies says she loves being part of PUMATRAC because it feels like your own portable personal trainer: “It’s on your phone so you can take it everywhere and you can train anywhere. Another great thing is that it offers so many different styles of workouts created by a diverse group of global athletes and trainers.”

Shane says PUMATRAC plays a key role in keeping exercise interesting: “Well we always have our phones on us, so now there’s no excuses! The app is great because no matter who you are, there are workouts to suit all types of people which encourages everyone to get involved.”

In the workouts Shane and Takkies can be spotted wearing the latest PUMA training shoe the Zone XT, inspired by the zone where progress happens, that moment when the heartrate speeds up, making the body burn fat most efficiently, also boosting endurance and increasing your metabolism. The main benefits of these new trainers include maximum cushioning, support, and grip – making the Zone XT perfect for any type of training, mainly HIIT workouts.
