New Balance brings its revolutionary retail concept, The Uncommonly Common Concept (UCC) – first launched in Durban – to the vibrant city of Cape Town. The opening of the Canal Walk store redefines the traditional shopping experience by placing people, not products, at the forefront of the retail experience.

The UCC solidifies New Balance’s commitment to elevating the consumer experience, and has quickly become a space for fearlessly independent consumers. The result is monumental and intimate, organic and precise, raw and refined. By embracing these tensions, New Balance creates a compelling platform that enables outsiders to find themselves in the brand, transforming them into passionate advocates. The UCC is a space for fostering connections, inspiring creativity, and celebrating individuality.

“We are excited to bring this fresh, ground-breaking UCC retail concept to Cape Town, after successfully launching it in KwaZulu-Natal. To transform the way customers interact with our brand, the store provides a welcoming and inclusive space for the community. It encourages customers to come together, share ideas, and discover their true style,” says Riaan Tolken, National Area Manager at New Balance.

Whether you’re an elite athlete striving for greatness or a fashionista looking to make a statement, the Canal Walk store provides an opportunity for you to envision your next defining moment, side by side with others who share their passion for style and performance.
