In the midst of her ongoing “WAP” reign and divorce from Offset, Cardi B is still making money moves. The rapper has teamed up with Reebok again for another insta-cop shoe release: meet the new Club Cardi Club C sneaker. The Cardi B Reebok sneaker was inspired by “a dystopian world,” and because Miss Cardi designed it in celebration of her recent birthday, is meant to be “unapologetically in your face, whether you like it or not.” Speaking of, shall we take a moment for her recent birthday post?
Incredible. Anyway, the shoes in question are a remix of the classic Reebok Club C silhouette. For the Cardi version, we’re working with a couple of updates: high shine patent leather, a lot more height, and a see-through midsole and outsole. It’s definitely *a look* and it’s clearly resonating with the baddies—the early release drop of shoes have already sold out on the Reebok Australia site. However, you can still get your hand on a pair when the Cardi B Reebok collab returns on the 13th of November for another drop, so if you’re keen, sign up for email updates here.
Cardi B may currently be busy collaborating with shoe brands and still potentially recovering from her absolutely massive Playboy birthday party, but the hustle apparently never stops. The current rumours about her next moves? A potential collaboration with none other than Nicki Minaj, whom she’s had a long-time feud with. Just when you thought WAP was the pinnacle that could not be topped…
Reebok has also given fans a peek at the next Reebok by Pyer Moss offering, having now cemented Pyer Moss’s founder Kerby Jean-Raymond their Vice President of creative direction. The Experiment 4 “Fury Trail” sneaker looks like it’s taking its cues from the upsurge in hiking and outdoor-inspired gear—a tip Nike’s ACG line has been on for a while.
Many shoes to consider but remember, 90% of sneakers end up in landfills. Yikes. Shoes are, unfort, one of the most difficult items in the fashion world to dispose of even if you tried to do it in an environmentally friendly way. Cop, but wisely and selectively.
