With his newest partnership with UGG, Vic mensa continues to climb the ladder as one of hip-hops brightest and younger stars to dip into the footwear world. We had an opportunity to catch up with Vic and talk his latest collaboration with UGG, his new music on the way and which piece is his favorite from the collection.
Check out what he had to say below.
Source: How was it collaborating with UGG for the first time?
Vic: It was amazing collaborating with UGG, they really let me have creative input so that I was able to make it feel authentic to myself we took it to Chicago I thought that was amazing to do it at home and also took it to some places in Chicago that wouldn’t standard-ily be photographed for something like this; we kinda took it to the heart of Chicago. Took it to some spaces that you wouldn’t see if you aren’t from Chicago. So in general yeah the collaboration I thought was a lot of fun and really was a liberate and creative experience and we were able to put a lot of my personal style into it and combine that with footwear to come up with something really special.
Source: Are you happy with the finished product of the collection?
Vic: Yeah, I think it looks amazing.
Source: Which piece from the collection is your favorite?
Vic: I like the lowtop neumel the brown color neumel, the classics are my favorite shoe but the lowtop neumel is really fresh.
Source: What are you most excited about with your new music?
Vic: I think i’m most excited to just give people a real sense of who I am I think I’ve had a lot of opportunities to show people different sides of me; like this is apart of me, this is apart of me but what the album will do is give people a full picture of myself as a man in this moment and as an artist.
