Wale has a new sneaker collaboration underway with Asics, sold exclusively by Villa, and he showed it on social media Wednesday night.
During an exclusive Shoe News New York City photo shoot on Wednesday, the rap superstar pulled out his gold, turquoise and black Asics Gel Lyte III sneakers. He hits Villa stores in July – a month before he releases his next album, “SHiNE”, which features his latest single, “My PYT”. During the filming in the offices of the FN, the rapper took the photo which now appears on his Instagram account. Wale also shared an image of the shoes via his personal Snapchat account.
âIt’s a comfortable brand to work with. A lot of brands wouldn’t do something this bold, âWale said of Asics in an interview with Shoe News.
This isn’t the first time Wale has teamed up with Asics and Villa for a sneaker collaboration. Last June, the three teamed up for the âBottle Rocketâ Gel Lyte III, a patriotic-looking shoe for Independence Day, featuring a red, white, blue and black color scheme. Wale and Villa also teamed up with Timberland for the six-inch âGift Boxâ boot which dropped in November.
