We all know Cardi B has been making money moves for a while, but now she’s teamed up with Reebok (once again) to take the statement to the next level. The Grammy-award-winning superstar is launching another apparel and footwear collection with the sportswear brand that's aptly titled “Let Me Be… Next Level Energy.”
If you’ve been on the internet for some years — or, if you're like me and have been following Cardi since her VH1 Love & Hip-Hop days — then you’ve probably seen the musician's triumphant rise to fame. The “Bodak Yellow” rapper went from being an aspiring artist to a platinum hit-making, mainstage rapper. The 29-year-old has always been known for having an authentic and lively personality and this collection is set to represent that. It’s inspired by Cardi B’s “unmatched energy” and will feature a two-part capsule color palette emulating the vibrant crystals on Earth.
The first part of the collection will launch in mid-October introducing two new footwear silhouettes: the Club C Cardi V2 ($120-$150) and Cardi Slide ($75). The Club C Cardi V2 is an exaggerated iteration of the original Club C Cardi, which debuted back in 2020.
What's different now? Well, the new shoe will feature an asymmetrical silhouette as a nod to Cardi’s non-stop hustles. The stacked outsole and exaggerated overlays bring her larger-than-life personality to the shoe. Colorways include blue and two variations of purple. Alongside the Club C Cardi will be the Cardi Slide with a puffed strap and toothy outsole, perfect for running errands or jazzing up an outfit.
Apparel-wise, Reebok and Cardi are releasing a mixture of sports and loungewear that coincide perfectly with the varying shoe selections. Pieces range from crop tops, bodysuits, leggings, and woven jackets. The collection will have a range of sizes going from a 2XS to a 4X.
“I would never be where I am if I did not keep pushing boundaries in my life and work. For this latest collection I collaborated with the Reebok team to inject my love of the hustle into every piece so my fans can use that energy in their everyday lives,” Cardi B says in a press release.
