Ja Rule is keeping busy with a new fashion collection. The rapper has announced that he’s partnered with fashion footwear designer, Steve Madden.
The pair have teamed together to create a a sneaker collection, which includes bold sneakers, dress shoes and motorcycle-style shoes in soft nappa, nubuck leather and suede.
“I wanted to partner with Steve to create a line that was both stylish and affordable,” said Ja Rule in a statement. “I love all the styles, but my favorites, I would have to say, are the high-top nubuck sneaker, the brush-off Chelsea boot. The Maven motorcycle-style boot is something different from anything out there.”
“He came to the table with all of these ideas,” said Madden. “He’s an awesome guy, we click. It’s been fun to collaborate with artists. I enjoy it. I enjoy the creative spark.”
The Maven x Madden collection, with shoes retailing from $145 to $195, will be available later this fall at select retailers.
