From the ground up

Mark Wahlberg, having modeled underwear for Calvin Klein and rapped under the moniker of “Marky Mark,” is set to add another skill to his resumé: sneaker designer.

In a recent episode of Wahlberg’s Wahlbergers reality TV show, Mark heads to Nike’s Beaverton campus to work on a Jordan collab, and the silhouette in question is said to be a Jordan Formula 23 Trainer. Sneakernews speculates that the shoe will be “more of a promo-only thing and not a retail offering.” Wahlberg revealed on camera that he’d also like to design a line of activewear for the brand, saying:

“I wanna tell Phil Knight and Michael that, you know what, I want to do my own line of workout apparel for the everyday guy.”
