With the Kaizer Chiefs squad seeming more youthful following the departure of a number of experienced players, the club are now the kings of streetwear fashion, thanks to the likes of Mduduzi Shabalala and Njabulo Blom, among others. Here's a look.

The story

If there's one thing about streetwear fashion is that it has an undeniable element of youthfulness. It is generally young people who advance new fashion trends and, simultaneously, they are often the target market for new design ideas.

For those who don't know, streetwear encompasses a casual style of clothing that is especially worn by large numbers of urban youth subcultures. Shabalala, Blom, Nkosingiphile Ngcobo, Sabelo Radebe, and Happy Mashiane completely embody this sense of style, a result that sees Amakhosi become the hub of streetwear swag.

The new wave

The beauty of this type of clothing is that it is often effortless, yet very much eye-catching. It can consist of colourful, baggy hoodies and sweatpants, printed tees, vibrant headgear, as well as modern and retro sneakers. 

It is not limited to just that, of course, but the essence of streetwear is the mixture of classic fashion trends with a youthful aesthetic that speaks to urban and modern-day culture.

One does not need to be a genius to quickly realise that Amakhosi really do bring the heat in this regard more than any other side, as the likes of Mamelodi Sundowns and Orlando Pirates only have a select few stars who pride themselves in streetwear - with Chiefs, it's a whole bunch of them!
