Kid Cudi to Launch a Sneakers Collection

21 Aug 2014

Rapper teams up with shoe designer Giuseppe Zanotti to create a high-fashion sneaker line

So the fashion industry is preparing itself for yet another rapper turned designer. Following after rapper Kanye West kid Cudi is trying his luck in the world of glamour with a high-end sneaker collection, in collaboration with design mogul Giuseppe Zanotti .

The Day ‘n’ Nite hitmaker met Italian designer Zanotti backstage at a concert, and the pair subsequently decided to collaborate on a luxury high-top leather running shoe line, which will be revealed as a part of the designer’s spring/summer 2015 collection. The footwear collection is reportedly a part of a range named Kid Cudi x Giuseppe Zanotti. 

This design coalition isn’t the first of its kind for renowned shoemaker Giuseppe, who has previously worked with kim Kardashian’s husband Kanye West. He has also designed shoes for brands suchas Balmain, Proenza Schouler, Thakoon Panichgul, Christopher Kane, Delfina Delettrez and Vera Wang.

With heavy weights like Zanotti the result is sure to impress fashionistas and their feet and if Kid Cudi’s  design skills are as good as his tunes, then we definitely want a pair!
