J. Cole is adding footwear designer to his already bloated list of accomplishments. Never one to go the typical route, he's attached himself to Bally for a set of boots that are sure to set him even further apart from the status quo.

His footwear debut is called the JC Hiker and it shares much in common with his music -- straightforward and high-quality. It's very much a traditional hiking boot with a focus on comfort and material serving as the lynchpin that Bally is known for. A whopping six colorways are included in the drop, ranging from suede to leather with a knobby outsole beneath.

The JC Hiker is a limited edition release that is available right now at Bally. If you're interested in copping, it's going to cost you. If you know anything about Bally, this aligns with the brand's history of costly high-quality goods. Either way, J. Cole has won yet again by straying from the beaten path.
