On Friday, 11 May, South Africans were encouraged to take part in Slipper Day. All one needed was to buy a R10 wristband and you could wear those comfy slippers all day.

"NOT ALL HEROES WEAR CAPES. Be a hero and wear your slippers!", the Reach For A Dream Foundation's post read on their website.

The proceedings would go to the Reach For A Dream Foundation, which aims to help with the "healing to South African children and their families by offering the child a magical moment to regain their childhood that is being lost to an life-threatening illness."

The 33-year-old Kaizer Chiefs star decided to show his support and encourage other South Africans to follow in his footsteps.

Tshabalala took to social media to show his support by posting a hilarious video where he's seen falling on the grass while testing out his slippers on the field.

"Brief: I challenge all to support #SlipperDay2018. Get your wristbands at @wimpy_sa or @PicknPay. More info: Happy slipper day", he captioned the video.

South Africans could have bought their wristbands from any Pick 'n Pay or Wimpy store or Reach For A Dream branch, and aside from being able to wear slippers the entire day, one got a free coffee from any Wimpy.
