After bandmate Will.i.am’s launch of a licensed men’s collection at Project in September, Black Eyed Peas musician Taboo is getting into the fashion game as well, via a line of cobranded sneakers with footwear maker Jump. The $298 sneakers will be available exclusively at five Saks Fifth Avenue stores this month, with distribution expanding to other high-end retailers in February.
“The moment I wore my first pair of Jump shoes I knew there was something extra fresh and unique about them,” said Taboo, whose given name is Jaime Gomez. “It went perfectly with my style and it had such a great fit while I performed on stage. I’m so honored to have the opportunity to collaborate with such a great company.”
