ongoing mutual respect we have for the brand today," the executive
said via a statement.
Inspired by the classic
Fila boot silhouette, the Wu-Tang Weathertech boot will feature an oiled suede
upper, molded rubberized vamp, d-ring lacing system and padded ankle collars.
The side and heel tab of the winter weather boot will include the Wu-Tang
Clan's insignia as well as signature Wu-Tang yellow highlights.
Available for $100, the
Wu-Tang Weathertech boot is scheduled to arrive just in time for the holidays.
