Lil Wayne Sneaker Line: Rapper Says It’s a ‘Well-Known’ Company
How does Lil Wayne not already have his own signature shoe? The MC clearly loves fashion and has already entered the streetwear market with his Trukfit hats and T-shirts, but he’s yet to be like Mike and launch his own sneaker. Whatever the reason, he won’t be absent from the footwear game for much longer.
“I have shoe with a well-known company,” Weezy told Vibe, revealing that his kicks won’t bear the Trukfit logo. “I just don’t want to say yet because I haven’t dotted the line yet. But it’s done.”
Wayne also denied that he’d signed on with either of the two biggest athletic shoe manufacturers.
“Nah, it’s not a Nike or Reebok,” he said. “I can tell you that much.”
Supra seems a safe bet, as Weezy has been known to rock the brand, but fans will have to wait for the official announcement — expected in the coming weeks — to know for sure. In the meantime, can we interest you in some MC Hammer-endorsed British Knights?
