Jadi Torres is preparing to kick it…

Chicken Soup for the Soul Entertainment has greenlit a new sneaker, hip-hop hybrid series Just for Kicks, featuring the Latina singer, songweiter and actor.

Jadi TorresHosted by Don Benjamin, Wes Armstrong and Torres, the series will feature varying groups of guests to talk all things shoes and fashion.

The new show hails from producer and director Rhyan LaMarr and entrepreneur Antoine Wade, and is set to feature a slate of stars including Allen Iverson, Jordan Clarkson, Rich the Kid, Bun B, Barton Fitzpatrick and more.

“We’re thrilled to bring Just for Kicks to audiences who love sneakers,” said Antoine Wade, producer. “There are no barriers, ethnic boundaries, or divisions when it comes to sneaker culture and fashion. A CEO can wear the same shoes as a kid from the inner city. That accessibility creates a universal love and appreciation for shoes beyond social classes. It starts with shoes and takes us all over the map, from music and fashion to inspirational stories and what’s happening worldwide.”

Just for Kicks will premiere later this summer on Crackle.
