Ruby Rose has a new collaboration coming out, the newest one is the GALLAZ X RUBY ROSE “RADAR” project, we see a limited edition pair of high-top sneakers alongside a custom designed skateboard that incorporates a splash of pink … so so Ruby!
Co-created by Ruby, the GALLAZ X RUBY ROSE “RADAR” project lifts some of Ruby\’s favourite tattoos as detailÂ on theÂ high-top sneaker and skateboard.
“I love being outdoors and for as long as I can remember I have loved doing the unexpected,” Ruby reveals. “When I was about 10 I smashed my chin open laying on my skateboard, going head first down a hill, picking up too much speed and rolling into a brick wall!! My mum had to empty a wheelbarrow full of firewood and put me in it – rushing me all the way to the Children\’s Hospital in the wheelbarrow so I could get 10 stitches in my chin.”
Ruby is one busy MTV VJ, so loves mixing edge with a touch of girlieness perfectly:
“I\’ve worn high-tops all my life so being able to work with GALLAZ and develop my own sneaker design with them has been an amazing experience. I was thrilled to have the opportunity to work with a cred brand like Gallaz. Â I wanted to be a part of every step of the process so people know these are legitimate.”
AvailableÂ in black and white, the High-Top sneaker comes with lots of bits and pieces to make them Ruby Rose special.
“How cool to be able to make something for people that they can wear and walk around in,” Rose says. “I wonder where they will take you or â€“ more to the point â€“ what journey you will take them on. I hope they get usedÂ till the soles are worn to out to the max, because that’s how you know a loved pair of shoes. The collaboration was an awesome experience: even my dog daisy is proud!”
As for the GALLAZ X RUBY ROSE SKATEBOARD it’s is a state-of-the-art custom built one that has all the latest advancements in skate innovation that is just too technical for this Sassi Girl and Ruby shares her love for skateboards:
“I had my first skateboard given to me at my 10th birthday and I’d have to say since then I have gone through about 20 and now, well now I just collect them,” Ruby says. “I remember one of the tasks I had to complete to get my MTV VJ job was skate down a massive ramp at Monster Park in a koala suit and everyone was shocked because I was the only one who didn’t fall on my butt!”
