Self proclaimed sneakerhead Tyga is on the new cover of Footwear News Magazine! Inside the mag the West Coast rapper sits down with FN for an exclusive one on one interview about sneakers- oh and a little Kylie Jenner tea too!
He reveals “Being from L.A., I like light shoes. I’m not into anything heavy. I like Vans, classic Chucks — very California. The whole culture of rap inspired my style. It comes from the streets and having nothing. You just want to prove you can make it out of your situation. Sneakerheads collect the craziest, most expensive shoes because you couldn’t have them when you were a kid. When you have the money to do it, they are more meaningful. A lot of artists are doing collaborations with fashion designers and brands. We’re all trying to move the culture”.
As for his big collaboration with L.A. Gear that launched just last month in Vegas its all about the Liquid Gold L.A. lights sneaker and the new Liquid Silver L.A. lights design both from the line!
As far as Kylie Jenner goes- one of the perks of being apart of the Kardashian/Jenner clan is your guaranteed a pair of Yeezys! “It’s winter and these just feel right. I’m lucky I don’t have to try and hunt them down online anymore. I like getting things first.”
