Wu-Tang and Fila Reunite for New Weathertech Boot


Revered Staten Island, NY rap collective Wu-Tang Clan is giving

shoppers another item to add to their Christmas list with its new Wu-Tang

Weathertech boot.

The footwear is the

latest product to emerge from Wu-Tang Brand, Ltd's alliance with popular sportswear

brand Fila. The two companies first collaborated in 2007 with the release of

the C.R.E.A.M. shoe, a special limited edition of Fila's classic original

tennis shoe that was available in three colors and developed exclusively for

New York City's Training Camp sneaker boutique.

Although the Weathertech

boot marks Wu-Tang's second footwear venture with Fila, the group's business

partner Oliver "Power" Grant revealed that Wu-Tang's relationship

with Fila goes back to the collective's beginnings.

"The partnership

with Fila began during our early days and our latest product represents the

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.
