Hollywood, CA (CNS) – “Old School” star Luke Wilson is just another star branching off into the fashion industry, or maybe we should say the sports industry. Wilson has designed a Special Edition street sneaker/golf show hybrid for the high-end athletic shoe wear company Puma.
Wilson, who is an avid golfer, teamed up with Swedish golf star Johan Edfors to design the new line of Puma golf products. Wilson says he expects the new cross-design shoes to be one of the line’s biggest sellers.
Wilson jokes, claiming he came up with the idea while gearing up for a lazy summer in Hollywood saying, “In between the strikes that keep happening in Hollywood, I have quite a bit of extra time on my hands, so, in between fixing up old Victorian houses and designing clothes and creating my own line of hair conditioner.”
He recently went on the show “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” to promote the new shoe. He also gave host Kimmel the pair of the golf sneakers he was wearing as a gift, leaving the show in his socks.
Wilson went on to tell Kimmel that he isn’t quite sure why he was approached to create the golf line because he is famously unstylish. He says, “I have friends that make fun of me because I tend to dress in the same colors, so I wind up looking a bit like the UPS guy or just your local postman.”
