Andre 3000 is one of the most stylish rappers in the game, consistently mixing preppy looks and eclectic fashion pieces that just...work. Back when Three Stacks was just a kid in Atlanta though, he would draw doodles of the classic Tretorn silos. Now, for the Nylite's 50th anniversary, Andre and Jeff Staple put together a capsule to bring his doodles to life.
Coming in a capsule of 10 shoes, the shoes feature a variety of designs, included rugby stripes, terrycloth and even quilted designs.
"Growing up, we'd all put our personal stamp onto the blank canvas of the Nylite and I'd sketch out my own designs," says Benjamin. "This collaboration felt like fun because it brought me back to that place of personalizing these original designs."
Available now, you can get them at Tretorn's online store, though pairs are going fast.Select retailers worldwide will launch the collection in early December, followed by specialty and department stores in February 2018..
