A-list actor and comedian Kevin Hart and Nike have paired up to created the Free Train Instinct Hart, and now the first colorway of that shoe has a release date. Hart, an avid fitness buff, is now the first non-athlete to pair up with Nike to create an actual performance shoe.
This shoe will mark the culmination of the partnerships between the star and iconic shoe brand, which in the past have paired up for Hart's 5k runs all over the country, as well as training sessions.
Since 2015 Hart has taken to social media and has invited his millions of fans and followers to join him in 5k's in cities like Boston, Philadelphia and Chicago.
This is why I do it....Simply for moments like this!!! I saw him a quarter mile out from the finish line and I was so inspired by how hard he was working....I jumped down and ran out to him and finished his 5K with him!!!! Good job man....u are well on ur way to greatness!!!! #HustleHart #Dallas #NRC #Motivation #HealthIsWealth #ItsaLifeStyle
Seems the hard work has paid off, as the partnership is likely earning Hart a pretty penny.
The shoes themselves have a sleek look. The most noticeable characteristic of the shoe is that they are covered in inspirational quotes written by Hart, himself. They include phrases such as “Health Is Wealth,” “Find Your Inner Athlete,” “Success Is a Mindset” and “Keep Pushing to be the Best Version of Yourself.”
On top of the black colorway, which is set to release on Saturday, a limited edition blue colorway is also expected to release in mid-July.
The shoe will be available via Nike's mobile app, SNKRS.
