Nicki Minaj Launches Sneaker Line

Sharing photos and the caption “LØCI sneaker collection available now,” on Friday (4.12,) Nicki Minaj took to her Instagram account to announce the launch of her foot wear line.

Teaming up with Loci, a sustainable sneaker and clothing company, the superstar rapper/writer released the collection of 11 designs in pink, blue, red and white.

In a statement posted to the brand’s website The Nicki Minaj x Loci collection “epitomises Nicki’s bold and vibrant style.”

Available in men’s and women’s size and made from non-food grade corn and other recycled materials, the design blends “high-fashion chic” with a street style aesthetic, with prices ranging from $185 to $200

With each shoe featuring a Nicki Minaj stamp on the tongue the various designs are inspired by Minaj’s debut studio album Pink Friday, and her latest release, Pink Friday 2.

The 12-time Grammy Award-nominated artist initially teased her sneaker collaboration in late March alongside a clip shared to her Instagram page, adding that designing her own line was “an absolute dream come true”.

In related Minaj-news, Nicki recently made history by becoming the highest-grossing tour by a female rapper of all time, with her Pink Friday 2 tour that officially grossed a record-setting $34.9 million from fewer than 20 shows.
