Supra laces Lil Wayne with his vices in sneaker form.
This article appears in Complex's February/March 2013 issue.
The amazing thing isn’t that Supra came up with sneakers to represent Lil Wayne’s vices—the amazing thing is that they stopped at just three. (Thankfully, none of the silhouettes are snowboard boots.) Weezy signing to Supra was the sneaker news of last summer. Since Spectre, by Supra, his lifestyle-based signature line is still a ways off, this “Vice Pack” was created to bridge the gap.
In order of most-to-least legal, there’s the Candy Paint Vaider Lite, the White Cup N Purple Stuff Skytop III, and the Real Tree Camo S1W—a shoe Wayne debuted during a frighteningly earnest performance of “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” at the World Series in San Francisco. As for the particular vice each sneaker represents.... Do you really need it spelled out for you?
Wayne has purportedly been living clean since getting out of prison, so maybe only one of these can be found in his system at the moment. But that’s between him and his probation officer.
White Cup N Purple Stuff Skytop III, $125
Real Tree Camo S1W, $105
Candy Paint Vaider Lite $115
