DOPENESS: ASICS X WALE X VILLA GEL-LYTE III ‘INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPION’

July 20, 2016 |  by  |  Fashion, KICKS ADDICT  |  Share


    VILLA and MMG’s own Wale come together again to bring you yet another exclusive collaboration with ASICS.


I’m loving the color combination for this kick.

The “IC Champion” moniker is much more than just a label for the primarily metallic gold sneaker. Wale, like many musicians, has passionate hobbies outside of the music industry. Mr. Folarin is an unapologetic, lifelong fan of the colorful world of professional wrestling and a well-known sneaker enthusiast. So what better way to show his appreciation for his passions than with a dope sneaker?

It’s no secret that Wale is a die-hard fan of wrestling. In fact, he wears his enthusiasm on his sleeve. Themed and titled after one of WWE’s most prestigious title belts, the Intercontinental Championship, this sneaker pays homage to one of Wale’s favorite championship belts in which some of his favorite superstars of all time have held, such as the Ultimate Warrior, Shawn Michaels, Mr. Perfect and more. Taking to Twitter to discuss every and all things related to wrestling, Wale has in many ways become our very own title-holder for both wrestling and hip-hop entertainment.

With VILLA’s ability to empower communities with opportunities and Wale’s popularity amongst the sneaker community and wrestling aficionados, this collaboration was kicked off with a run against the ropes and finished with a dynamic power slam!

The Asics x Wale x Villa GEL-Lyte III Grade-School ‘Intercontinental Champion’ (Metallic Gold/Black-Blue Moon) drops tomorrow via RUVilla.com and at a Villa location near you!

    Kendrick Lamar dropped a bomb on us late last night and it gave me goosebumps. Over like 4 different beats, he delivers clear bars, rhymes about current topics and still manage to address the competition. This dude is a beast! His new album is set to arrive April 7th. Listen to IV below.
