Kid Cudi is expanding his empire…
The 30-year-old part-Mexican American hip-hop singer/actor, who recently landed a role in the psychological drama Meadowland, has landed his first sneaker line.
Kid Cudi, whose real name is Scott Mescudi, decided to bypass the big sportswear firms and, instead, inked a deal with Italian shoe designer Giuseppe Zanotti.
The first look at his shoe range is this red Nappa leather high-top, which has a hint of sci-fi style. According to Nice Kicks, the Kid Cudi x Giuseppe Zanotti High-Top will launch as a part of the brand’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection.
The Brooklyn-based rapper is known for doing things a little different. His most recent, fourth studio album, Satellite Flight: The Journey to Mother Moon, dropped earlier this year with little warning. And his soon-to-launch high-tops slot seemed to follow his out of this world ways.
