If you’re holding your breath waiting for
Santogold Santigold to follow up her 2008 debut album, well, you’ll probably turn blue and pass out any second now. But if you’ve been wanting Santi White to branch out and start designing some of that crazy fashion she sports, well, good news!
The Philly-based rapper/singer/songwriter/producer has collaborated with Vans for her own pair of kicks, which as you can see above, really matches her fly style. And yes, that is a real faux gold chain draping across the perforated leather.
Says the press release:
With her eclectic sound, incredible sense of style and love for Vans, it was too good to be true when Vans and Santigold joined forces for a special February 2011 shoe release. Santigold teamed up with Vans designers to create a shoe of her very own. Working with the new Tosha Hi silhouette and Santi’s personal design aesthetic, the limited Vans x Santigold collaboration features premium perforated full grain leather, faux gold chain accents. The look becomes complete with a custom SG gold pin created with the trained eye of jewelery designer Jules Kim of Bijules.
If you’re looking to buy a pair, the Vans x Santigold Tosha Hi will be available in your finer Vans retailers on February 1st.Tweet
