Treth Sports (to receive eternity through him) was birthed from a desire to honour James’ and William’s late father Panu Raea and their Christian faith.

The brothers are supported closely by their mother, Amanda and other local companies such as Grooming Cave to deliver high quality athleisure and street wear for men and women.

With both obtaining Bachelors of Commerce under their belt, running a business together comes as an easy feat. Although there are some obstacles in the way, the boys acknowledge that working as a family has been a “blessing” as it’s easier to “work through [challenges] and have those hard conversations.”

Treth Sports is built on the foundation of what Jesus Christ demonstrated; love, integrity, compassion and selflessness. Which is why Treth Sports are committed to donating 50% of their EOY profits to charity.

To catch the boy’s in person and in time to cop their Winter Collection, head to Vodafone Events Centre tomorrow from 10am to 2pm where the boys will be participating in the Outsole Event – a first-of-its kind sneaker donation drive helping to put sneakers on the feet of Kiwi kids in need.

James and William will like to thank all those who have supported them from the beginning, especially their mother Amanda, accountant Jona Nabalarua, William’s fiancé, Natassia and James’ partner, Hannah and their families, and special shoutout to all their friends and customers for copping and wearing Treth proudly in public.
