The first sneakers will retail for $220 and come in all-white and olive green color schemes. For the singer, it was important to make a shoe that was not only accessible to the masses, but that also included his sense of style. “I was involved in almost every aspect, but I was most focused on the silhouette,” he explained to Footwear News. “With XO and Puma, we really collaborated and worked on making the best product possible.”

The shoes will come first, but “his street-style-focused T-shirts, denim jackets and pants will launch shortly after,” Footwear News revealed.
