He is following in the footsteps of the likes of fellow musician Rihanna, who released a Rihanna FENTY footwear collection with the brand.

About the collection, Young Thug said: "You can never go wrong with classics and big ups to PUMA for keeping the sneaker legacy alive. I pay my respects to the legends by rockin' their tunes and their kicks. Like one legend says, in this great future, we can't forget the past."
