Remember that time Tyga got served a summons at a shoe launch? Well, the shoe that snaked a bit more publicity (all publicity is good, right) because of that very public handout was Tyga's first collaboration with LA Gear. He'd hooked up with the recently resuscitated brand, which had its glory days in the 1990s, for a stack of LA Lights including that bold 'Liquid Gold' offering and now this more subdued 'Black Nubuck' number. The material used on the upper is given away by the name, we assume, and the only other colour to show up is red, with streaks of the liquid hot magma on the tongue and outsole. Those famous lights also blip red. Blip Blip! The LA Lights started its life as a kid's shoe, so the colab with Tyga makes sense. These are available at Shiekh Shoes, but appear to have already sold out online – turns out many kids love Tyga, not just his girlfriend.
