12.14.09 --- Word is that music producer Swizz Beatz has teamed up with luxury shoe designer Christian Louboutin to design a new sneaker collection.
The sneaker should debut in 2010. No word on the cost of the sneaks, but we imagine it will be equal to a pair of Louboutin’s women’s shoes which currently run around $800 a pair. Beatz follows in the footsteps of fellow music industry vets, Kanye West and Mark Ronson - both of whom have debuted sneakers with Louis Vuitton and Gucci, respectively.
So far, it appears to mimic the feel of a Converse hi-top, but who’s to say our sneak peek is the final version.
