YG has teamed up with K-Swiss on a new co-designed collection, which celebrates the rapper’s love for experimental fashion while paying homage to one of the iconic silhouettes of the historic tennis brand.
The K-Swiss x YG collection is available now on FootLocker.com and launches with a reinvented pair of Classic LX sneakers. The Classic LX is one of K-Swiss’s most enduring silhouettes, featuring the brand’s signature five-stripe design, three-piece toe cap and chunky sole. The YG version of the LX features a shimmering silver pattern with the rapper’s name and branding on the tongue of the sneaker and the accompanying shoebox. The K-Swiss x YG shoe is aptly titled “Disco”.
This is the first collection co-designed between K-Swiss and YG. The musician and sneaker collector says he’s a longtime K-Swiss fan and knew exactly how he wanted to customize a shoe to reflect his “flair” and personality. The words he used on his moodboard for the collaboration: “Gangsta, groovy, classic, different, special and timeless,” he says. Rolling stone. “You have to be confident to wear them like I wear them, you have to have swag [and] you must have some sauce, ”he said.
K-Swiss, meanwhile, calls the rapper a “cultural force with a unique artistic vision” and says they wanted to work with YG because he is a true “multi-faceted artist.”
The limited-edition K-Swiss x YG Classic LX sneaker costs $ 120 at Foot Locker and is available in men’s sizes 7.5-14 (although it’s designed for unisex clothing). This is the first pair of sneakers released as part of K-Swiss’s partnership with YG and is expected to sell out quickly, both for fans of the artist and avid sneaker enthusiasts. The following declines are expected to be announced shortly.
