The R&B and Soul princess, Alicia Keys, now has a new day job! She is currently working with Reebok, her favorite teenage sneaker line, designing her own line of 5411’s. According to BET sources, “Each sneaker comes in two color themes: tribal patterns or piano keys with the New York City skyline.” Alicia Keys calls this new line her own version of the classic 5411’s. What most people don’t know is that Keys actually customized a pair of 5411’s years ago for her video, “If I Ain’t Got You.”

Swizz Beatz, Keys’ husband, has been working very closely with Reebok to bring the brand back in a whole new way, incorporating unique and urban styles; the opportunity presented itself, and Keys did not hold back. Keys told People that, “It was everything I dreamed about growing up, and a style of shoe I connected to as a teen. It was another creative outlet for me.” She is expecting everyone to be anxious to buy a pair, and she says, “I can see people wanting to rock them, love wearing them.”

The new Reebok line will launch very soon, and will retail for $80 at select locations. It seems like more artists are jumping on this new opportunity; Keys is bringing in “The Boss,” Rick Ross, and Tyga for partnerships as well. Jump on this new line, and be in the New York State of mind because these sneakers are epic!
