Versace Chain Reaction Boot...
High fashion brands have always been influenced by Hip Hop and street culture. Designer brands can no longer deny or take from the culture without fully embracing rappers and streetwear.
Rappers are without a doubt more influential than fashion models and A list Hollywood celebs. Yes, rappers and creatives from streetwear are the people who are setting trends and kicking down doors that were once closed.
From Kanye West to Virgil Abloh to 2 Chainz, all three friends have accomplished things we never thought would happen. Look at where 2 Chainz was 10 years ago compared to his current success. Absolutely amazing!
Versace collaborated with Tity Boi and together they created the Chain Reaction sneaker. Taking advantage of the chunky sole trend, Versace and 2 Chainz sneaker received a warm welcome from the fashion and sneaker community.
Salehe Bembury, Head Designer of Versace sneakers shared a first look at the Chain Reaction Boot. He didn't shed any light other than confirming this is the boot version.
No word on when this model will release, but info should surface soon.
