This isn’t true though as there are a variety of shoes in Somgaga’s range that are fitting for everyone. 

Here are the comments from fans regarding the new Bathu range:

“Is the Bathu shoe line really beautiful or we have to buy it cos it’s a local brand?”

“Design is nice, but the shiny bits are a bit much, maybe for ladies yes, but for males I’m not sure.”

“I also like the shoes a lot, my only problem are the old apartheid colors on the soles. And yes, for ladies not for majita…”

“Somizi took Bathu into a whole new world, big up to the Bathu creator for being open minded. Congratulations to both.”

“Not my style I love the original design. They are beautiful though.”

“I doubt some of us are target market, imagine sengiqgoke isneaker eline signature kaSomizi, lapho licwebezela engathi yiJohannesburg,”

“I’m not surprised that straight guys are not the target market for this range, they just scream DIVA nje.”
