Fresh off his first collaboration with JUMP, Taboo, of the multi-Grammy Award winning group, The Black Eyed Peas, has once again partnered with JUMP to launch Taboo Deltah 3008, his own collection of footwear for Foot Action stores nationwide in Fall 2010.
The Taboo Deltah sneakers combine Taboo’s unique taste with the Black Eyed Peas’ 3008 futurism. The three styles: the Diction low-top, the Denizen mid-top and the Delegate super high-top merge performance and versatility in a variety of colors. Priced between $65 and $85, they are highly accessible for sneaker aficionados looking for footwear that is contemporary and fresh but also very wearable.
As the designer, Taboo made it a point to develop shoes that provide cushion and support for dancing with a stylish and aggressive silhouette. The Taboo Deltah 3008 collection uses smooth, clean lines with a simple yet powerful ballistic nylon and patent exterior.
“In 3008, there will be no war, race or turmoil. That is where Deltah 3008 comes from,” says Taboo. “I remember not being able to afford the cool shoes everyone had when I was a kid so for my own brand I wanted to create something amazing that everyone can afford.” Taboo refers to himself as a “sneaker pimp” with his own collection topping 700 pairs.
