Bryson Tiller will soon be releasing his own sneaker with Nike. The Trapsoul singer announced the partnership on Instagram yesterday, revealing he will be dropping a special edition of the Air Force 1 Bespoke iDs.

“I wore a uniform to school, so the white-on-white or black-on-black Air Force 1 Low was the simple sneaker to wear, but it was the standard. You were cool if you had on a pair of Air Force 1s,” he said. “It’s still a staple for me while on tour.”

His shoe is in homage to his hometown of Louisville, Kentucky, and designed them based on boxing’s tie to the city. It features a red leather upper and tour yellow eyestay (to look like boxing gloves,) as well as metallic gold dubraes, an off-white midsole and a gum.

“Whenever you fly into Louisville, you see a sign that says, ‘It’s Possible Here.’ I remember my first time seeing it—I think I was coming home from the studio in LA—I was working on my debut album, and I just thought, ‘Wow, it is possible here,’” he added. “Everybody always thinks you have to move out of the city and go where the music industry is, but it’s possible in Louisville, and it’s possible anywhere. You just have to believe. So, I put ‘POSSIBLE’ on them as well.”

More details soon!
