Vic Mensa Gets Into The Footwear Business With His Own Combat Boots

The Chicago wordsmith is also an entrepreneur with a new line of boots.

(AllHipHop News) Chicago Rapper Vic Mensa is getting into the footwear business, with his own line of combat boots.

The rapper just did a deal with Wolverine, the 135-year-old Michigan-based footwear and apparel company.

They are working with Vince to co-create a custom "1000 Mile" collection that reinvents classic combat boots.

"With Wolverine, I was able to pull my personal style into the collection and bring a lot of the punk aesthetic that I'm drawn to into the design of these shoes to create a boot-inspired sneaker," said Vic Mensa. "It's been a very collaborative process and I had the opportunity to get my hands on the quality materials Wolverine uses—like the leathers I hand-selected."

Vic's new line comes in three different heights, as well as three different colorways.

Prices started $190 and a portion of the proceeds from each pair will go to Vic Mensa's youth charity, SaveMoneySaveLife.

"With Wolverine, I got to go to the leather factory and pick materials inspired by the vintage pieces I've collected," Mensa said. "Partnering with a brand that could bring my vision to life and support my philanthropic efforts through SaveMoneySaveLife was a great opportunity. This is a big year for me in fashion, starting with the design of the combat collection. It's something I'm passionate about."
