There’s no shortage of sneakers to choose from this holiday season, but hopefully you’ve left some room on your shopping list because Villa and rapper Fabolous are teaming up to release four exclusive shoes that should be on your radar.
Villa has partnered with Fabolous to turn its annual holiday event — previously known as “Perfect Week” — into “Fabolous Week.”
“With Fabolous setting trends for rhymes and wardrobe, he was a perfect choice to help tell the stories of our latest exclusive products,” Villa said of the partnership, which will see the release of exclusive colorways from Reebok, Timberland, New Balance and Converse.
First up in the collection is the Reebok Question Mid “Liberty Bell,” which was “inspired by the iconic international symbol of freedom that was rung when the Continental Congress signed the Declaration of Independence in 1776,” according to Villa. The Reebok Question Mid “Liberty Bell” is priced at $140 and will be released on Monday.
For those in search of something a little more rugged, Villa will be releasing a Timberland 6-inch Premium Boot in a soft light blue colorway. These boots are $200 and will drop on Tuesday.
Boathouse Row, a Philadelphia landmark, inspired this exclusive New Balance 999. “This shoe’s vibrant color scheme finds influence in the row’s 19th century charming boat houses that line up perfectly along the riverbank just west of the Philadelphia Museum of Art,” reads a press release from Villa. The New Balance 999 “Boathouse Row” arrives on Nov. 23 for $130.
Rounding out this exclusive collection is the Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star “City Canvas,” which taps artist Naturel (aka Lawrence Atoigue) for a printed take on the classic sneaker. The “City Canvas” Chuck Taylor releases on Nov. 24 for $65.
