The 28-year-old rapper received a special delivery Sunday night: her first-ever Reebok x Cardi Footwear Collection, which she announced on her birthday Oct. 11. Two women hopped out of the delivery truck and rolled out the pink carpet that was shaped like a tongue. Once they helped the “WAP” rapper open up the red leather case that resembled a pair of lips, a pair of her chalk-colored Club C sneakers were laying in an open mouth model that played an excited voice note from Cardi.
“Wow ! Wow ! I love my @Reebok collab packaging.I never seen it in person,” she captioned the unboxing clip. “These will be deliver tomorrow.I love it !I hope you guys love it.”
The collection officially drops Friday, but Justine Skye was one of its earliest recipients Monday (Nov. 9). The singer even quoted her “WAP” lyrics while opening the Reebok package on her Instagram Story. “Not this dangly thing in the back of the throat,” she teased while pressing on it and laughing when it spat out one of Cardi’s notorious catchphrases.
From her fresh kicks to red bottoms to Balenciagas (the ones that look like socks), Cardi’s shoe game and overall sense of style have earned her the Style Influencer of the Year award at this year’s Footwear News Achievement Awards.
“I’ve always been into fashion. Back then, I couldn’t afford what I wanted, now I can. It’s easier and I have more connections with brands,” Cardi told FN last month. “I could wear the most uncomfortable shoe and I’m just going to take it and love it because it’s fashion, it’s beauty, it’s amazing, it’s different. I get bored, so that’s when me and my stylist [Kollin Carter], we get creative and come up with something new and amazing.”
She’ll accept the honor during the first virtual FNAAs on Dec. 8.
