As much as we enjoy Jimmy Fallon performing with The Roots using musical toy instruments; last night’s Kevin Hart fashion moment was pretty cool as well. Hart showed off his kicks which are part of a collaboration with Nike due to be released later this year. At this point of time an exact date of the sneaker release is yet to be determined. Nevertheless, shoe industry experts are pinning a date for the collection for this coming April.
With the release Hart would become the very first actor/comedian/entertainer to ink a deal with Nike. What name has Kevin chosen to give to his shoes? Hart can definitely say that he ‘started from the bottom’ and hustled his way to stardom. Therefore, Kevin Hart’s trainers have been fittingly named, “Hustle Hart.” So far two colors have been showcased for the Nike Hustle Hart, red and blue.
For a project such as this consumer reaction as well as opinion is key. We took to the gram to get an early indication of what potential buyers may be currently thinking. Here are a few comments we gathered:
“Lol we need those.”
“They really aren’t that bad.”
“This gotta be Nike’s response to Ye.”
“These are dope.”
So far it looks like Nike and Kevin are on their way to a really big pay day. Congrats to Kevin Hart we wish you much fashion success and hope that this collaboration inspires others to Hustle Hart… oops we mean hard.
