Grade Africa


    Zaid, who is the founder of Africa’s largest sneaker expo (Sneaker Exchange) is the visionary behind the streetwear brand, GRADE AFRICA.

    “GRADE is here to enhance community and establish genuine relationships; it is a diversified community that encourages you to self-express through design and art forms.” 

    From a local and Afro-centric perspective, the goal is to set trends and evaluate styles. It is critical that African businesses take ownership of the African narrative, expertise, artistry, and knowledge in a world where the “Wakanda” attitude, Afro-futurism, and Afro-modernism are at the forefront of international brand trends. Grade aims to establish a new international benchmark for streetwear.
