Fergie isn’t the only member of the Black Eyed Peas to dive into footwear. After trying his hand at design with the TabooXJump collection (sold at high-end retailers such as Saks Fifth Avenue), Taboo is at it again with a solo venture, called the Taboo Deltah 3008 collection. “As an artist, I make really cutting-edge music that connects with a tremendous amount of people all over the world, and I wanted to do the same with my shoe line,” Taboo told Insider. “I wanted to convey the lifestyle appeal of the Black Eyed Peas’ futuristic and post-apocalyptic vibe.” The sneaker line, produced by Jump Corp. but branded as an individual project for Taboo, uses nylon materials and patent leather for a “rugged and polished” look. Set in a lower price range, between $65 and $85, the line is sold exclusively at select Footaction locations. — Kristen Henning
