We’ve seen rappers and musicians often collaborate with sneaker makers and come up with some of the most iconic sneakers of all time.
Kanye West, for example, has practically relaunched Adidas’ sneaker line, with his iconic line of Yeezy sneakers.
Now, Billie Eilish appears to be the latest pop star to design sneakers and launch his own line of sneakers.
Billie Eilish is set to release her new line of sneakers, which were made in collaboration with Nike’s Jordan. The sneakers will be a refresh of the classic Air Force 1 silhouette, with a few minor but impressive tweaks.
Weeks before the launch, images of the refreshed sneakers were “leaked” online.
The “Bad Guy” singer has been a huge sneakerhead ever since she went public. Pick one of her public appearances since 2015, and you’ll see her sporting some of the coolest kicks any sneakerhead would give a leg and an arm to have.
Naturally, it was only a moment before she got into the sneaker game too.
Based on the “leaked” images, it can be a bit difficult for an ordinary person to tell the difference between a regular pair of Air Force 1s and those designed by Billie Eilish, which are called Air Jordan 1 KOs.
First off, there are the obvious neon colourways that we’ll see. On the tongue, instead of a label that says “Nike Air Jordan”, we see his signature badge “Blohsh” or the image of a man with his shoulder raised.
Apart from this we also see that in the insole we get Billie’s own brand instead of the traditional Air Jordan brand. The original packaging will also contain a small notebook, hinting at Billie’s abilities as a songwriter.
The sneakers are expected to drop in a few weeks, and major sneaker publications expect them to cost around $ 120.
While there is no report of any kicks coming to India and if they end up falling here, be prepared to shell out around Rs 15,000 to Rs 20,000 for a pair.
Sneakersheads, especially if they’re die-hard Billie Eilish fans, better get their hands on them when they can, because a few days after they drop, before they hit the resale market with margins. exorbitant.
