J. Cole Designed A Really Expensive Hiking Boot

For when you love mixtapes and trail mix, but are over Timbs.

In a surprising, yet welcomed turn of events, J. Cole's latest collaboration doesn't involve a mixtape or guest verse, but rather a fancy take on a crunchy outdoorsy staple. Partnering with Swiss luxury fashion house Bally, Cole has created a limited edition hiking boot. The rapper shared with The New York Times his newfound appreciation of comfy, clean utility footwear. "As I’m getting older, I’m learning more about what my true style actually is," said Cole. "Becoming more confident in what I like. And I love simplicity and comfort."

Dubbed the "JC Hiker", the luxe footwear range comes in seven colorways, and will be priced between $695 to $1,995. Browse the collection here.
