Is Kevin Hart getting his own signature sneaker?! Well, if you ask him, yes; yes he is.
The pint-sized comedian appeared on The Tonight Show last night, and made a big announcement in the process: Nike has made him his own shoe, the Nike Hart Hustle. While Hart’s a comedian and actor, the shoe is an actual performance model; a Free-based cross-trainer that features mantras and quotes from Hart emblazoned onto the upper.
But here’s the catch: While Kevin claimed this is the Nike Hart Hustle, it looks a lot like the upcoming Nike Free Trainer Instinct, simply with slightly different sole tooling. (Those are catalog shots of the Instinct, so the sole being revamped a bit isn’t at all far-fetched.) Moreover, there’s also a Free Train Hustle coming soon, which may well be a dead ringer for the Instinct, simply with that updated sole.
But I digress. Check out Kevin and Jimmy Fallon below. The “Nike Hustle Hart” will release in April in both red and blue colorways.
