Kenyan rapper and one of the pioneers of Genge in the early 2000s recently unveiled his new shoe line dubbed the “Mgenge2ru”.
The new kicks will cost you $244 which is approximately KSh. 26,861.96. The shoes were handcrafted by Italian craftsmen.
According to the website, the design is “straight out of basketball archives, this sneaker re-issues the court style according to today trends. The mesh upper with leather overlays and suede accents is cut in a mid-rise basket silhouette. This shoe features perforated detailing for breathability, a padded collar for added comfort and front lace closure. It is finished with a chunky sole made of extra-light and durable rubber and a padded tongue with an embedded logo.”
Sharing a picture of the shoe and the name of one of the buyers, the rapper wrote, “I designed the white part on the sneaker so that when I pull up in your city, I come and autograph for you.”
