Cardi B may soon be adding the title of shoe designer to her list of growing accomplishments. From making history on the Billboard charts to getting engaged to Offset, the “Bodak Yellow” rapper has already had quite the impressive year.
In a recent interview with Footwear News, Steve Madden confirmed that he’s working on a potential shoe deal with Cardi B. “We like Cardi — she’s great. We’re talking to Cardi — we’re talking to some other people, too, but we like Cardi a lot,” said Madden. “The thing about Cardi that’s interesting is that she’s kind of like an entrepreneur, and I admire what’s she’s done. I don’t know yet if [the deal] is going to happen, but we’re friends.”
Back in September, rumors began to swirl of the potential partnership between the rapper and the shoe designer when Irv Gotti posted the following photo on Instagram with the caption, “Y’all ready for this Collabo?? Steve Madden and Cardi B!! Cardi’s Shoes!! Powered by Visionary Ideas.”
If the shoe collaboration does happen, Cardi B won’t be the first hip hop artist that Madden has partnered with. He previously launched lines with rappers Ja Rule and Iggy Azalea.
Considering Cardi B’s killer shoe game, we truly hope that this collaboration becomes a reality!
