Fat Joe’s New Protege Kicks

Fat Joe

Fat Joe is the newest celebrity endorser for Protege helping out NBA ballers Al Harrington and Stephen Jackson. In a recent unveiling, “The Blackout” sneakers were announced.

Joey Crack is a known sneakerhead, so it’s no surprise to see him receive his own sneaker. And for only $34.99, it’s good to see him help less fortunate kids afford a stylish Air Yeezy-like shoe.

What do you think?

    Hmmm…it’s not bad, I’ve been meaning to pick one of the protege types up, but I never get over to K-mart to do it. I like what they are doing with them though and they seem to actually be good shoes. Shouldn’t they have a shoe called the “Blackouts” in Black?

    Fat Joe getting a basketball shoe is like Jack Black getting a baseball glove or Brett Michaels getting a football cleat. It just doesn’t make sense for non-athletes to endorse athletic products.

    I don’t have a problem with what they’re trying to accomplish with a low priced footwear alternative but Fat Joe’s signature shoe should be a casual shoe not a basketball performance shoe. I mean is Joe really out there hooping in this shoe? How else can he endorse a product without actually hooping in it ya know.

    It’s a hot style sneaks that’s affordable and a good look out for the ppl in community who might can’t buy the higher price sneaks. It’s always haters trying to throw gas on the fire when some1 from our culture is giving back and hustling.
    Pay homage, bc he’s not really marking them up for profit.
    Fat Joe, Good look on the sneaks and keep the huslte up!
