It looks like Ghostface is on a serious roll with molding the Ghostface Killah brand.
The all-time legendary Ghostface Killah of the Wu-Tang Clan has teamed up with New York City shoe boutique, Extra Butter, and notable athletic brand, Asics, for a make of his own shoe, the AsicsTiger Gel Lyte MT, also to be known as the “Pretty Toney.”
Set at a retail price of $180, the sneaker is reportedly inspired by the rapper’s love for leather jackets. Absorbed with the chroma of burgundy, “Pretty Toney” will feature a burgundy leather atop with the Asics label in tan on the side center panels, along with vintage gum bottoms.
To commemorate the leather jacket theme, a leather belt has been placed on the heel, with buttons running along the edgeways, and rather than being embodied with a standard lace setup, there will be a zipper lace gaiter which is symbolic to the zipper of a leather jacket.
Buyers of “Pretty Toney” will have the chance to match ridiculous with an apparel set consumed with a graphic tee, along with a New Era collab of beanie hats and strapbacks. The strapbacks will feature the piercing eagle seen on Ghost’s iconic eagle bracelet. According to Sole Collector, the strapbacks and beanies will respectively be available for the price of $36 and $24.
The AsicsTiger Gel Lyte MT “Pretty Toney” shoe and Ghostface Killah x Asics x Extra Butter’s apparel collection, will be available for grabs on November 4th and 5th exclusively at ComplexCon, and New York City shoe boutique, Extra Butter, will have the collection on sale for both in-store and online on November 7th. Welp, sneakerheads, hip-hop heads, and Ghostface fans, make it happen!
