He saw the Green Zetos and had to cop a pair to represent his Eagles.
Jason Derulo was reppin the Zetos something fierce way in the new video off his latest album.
Here he puts the Taboo x Jump Black and Gold Zetos into action as he rushes to save his girl (who is a hottie) from imminent death by car.
These are the Burgundy Boa Zetos.
That’s two different Zetos in one video – that’s some respect!!

The Fall 2010 collection refreshes Jump Deluxe’s core items while introducing new silhouettes on a rugged yet comfortable tread outsole. The collection features a grounded look, influenced by the outdoors with earth-tone leathers finished lightly with oil and wax. In addition, all styles feature cow-skin lining with memory foam insoles for reliable comfort unparalleled in the realm of typical sneakers.
Hitting stores in June.
Looks like the American Idol contestants have gotten their hands on some JUMPs once again. Here’s Tim Urban and Aaron Kelly flashing their Volume 2′s backstage on the set of a Ford commercial.
Big Mike is wearing Zetos here.
It’s always interesting to see what sort of celebrities wear your shoes and it looks like now we’ve got Jake Pavelka from ABC’s The Bachelor wearing JUMPs. Here he is with his fiancee, Vienna.
I know he had his missteps with Rihanna but you simply cannot deny his fancy footwork in this video in JUMPs. It’s like Taboo said, JUMPs are almost made for dancing. The toe character, the strength of the rubber outsole and the sexiness perfectly lends itself to dancing. And if this song is any indication, it certainly seems like Chris is remorseful for what happened. Either way, the shoes look fly.
Here he’s wearing the Zetos in YRB.
So I’m finally recovered enough to blog about the festivities from Thursday night. It was an absolutely tremendous event, one that exceeded each and every one of my expectations. After months of planning, to see it finally come to fruition is utterly rewarding. It really was more of a ceremony, and as much as it was a launch for the TABOOXJUMP collaboration, it was also very much a rite of passage for our brand. I cannot thank Taboo enough for helping us make this a reality. We are so completely fortunate to have aligned at this moment in time and we’re truly blessed for it.
The evening began at our SoHo store. We had all the traditional JUMP festival accoutrement, Serrano ham from Despana professionally sliced by Senor Alex and cases upon cases of champagne.
It’s going to be a big week. My homeboy Tab’s coming back to NY and we’re going to get a few things cracking. KEEP YOUR THURSDAY OPEN!
While out here in Chicago, we’ve had the pleasure of visiting most of Akira’s nine stores. The owners, Erikka and Jon were quite hospitable. It’s really quite spectacular as they essentially run Chicago’ fashion scene through a slew of events hosted by some very well known celebrities. Check out some images from their last fashion show sponsored by JUMP.
The TABOOXJUMP shoes just reached American shores. Here’s a sneak peak.
Jump and Taboo of The Black Eyed Peas Launch Luxury Sneaker Collection Exclusively for Saks
NEW YORK, NY – Sep. 22 – In an innovative partnership bridging fashion and music, NY based, lifestyle footwear brand, Jump, has teamed up with Taboo of three time Grammy Award winning, multi-platinum recording group, The Black Eyed Peas, to design a limited collection of luxury sneakers. While the performer had already worn several of Jump’s characteristic sneakers on tour, it was a meeting at the Jump SoHo boutique that spawned a full on creative collaboration between the artist and the brand. Soon after, the idea was presented to Saks Fifth Avenue, whereupon the product was embraced and an exclusive launch for the TABOOXJUMP collection was born.
The collection consists of four models adapted from one of Jump’s key styles, the Zeto high top. The sneakers will feature unique branding highlighting the collaboration and will be packaged in limited edition satin bags and drawer boxes. They will retail for $298 a pair.
“It is such an amazing opportunity to align with Taboo, whose design sensibility so perfectly coincides with ours, particularly during what I believe to be the height of his and The Black Eyed Peas’ success”, said Jump Chief Propagandist, Victor Hsu. Through this collaboration, we hope Taboo’s dreams as a shoe fanatic can come to fruition and he can use the experience as a foundation to build his own line of footwear in the future”, said Jump Captain, Lawrence Chen.
“The moment I wore my first pair of Jump shoes I knew there was something extra fresh and unique about them”, said Taboo. “It went perfectly with my style and it had such a great fit while I performed on stage. I’m so honored to have the opportunity to collaborate with such a great company and an amazing group of people to create the perfect union between Jump and myself.”
Saks buyer, Shawn Pean describes the collaboration as “the perfect synergy of Brand and Lifestyle. Taboo has a great sense of style that has become iconic for many, and Jump is a footwear brand that encompasses this lifestyle dressing through a footwear perspective. The brand collaboration has tremendous upside and we are pleased to get in on a ground level and help take this to new heights.”
The collection will be sold exclusively at select Saks locations nationwide for Fall 09 and will launch officially on October 14th.

Here’s the Zeto in their sneaker feature.
And the Captain, Lawrence Chen, looking extra Captain-ish with his facial hair.
First there was VANQUISH. Now there is ZETO. As it were an evolutionary next step into the journey of deluxification, dawns the coming of the newest offering from JUMP. Hand crafted from a myriad assemblage of materials from the four corners of the globe, it features leathers aged in metallic copper, patents etched from the skins of dragon kings and full interior linings from the hides of cows that rival Kobe. It is a sneaker snatched from the lockers of the gods and now available, finally, to mankind.
Behold, the Zeto in Copper Metallic Leather. This colorway is available exclusively at select Bloomingdale’s locations.

Taboo sent me these pics of him rocking the Red/Gold Zeto combo from the TABOOXJUMP collection while performing in Chicago for the Oprah Winfrey show.
Be sure to check out the show today to see the performance and also watch the NFL opening kickoff to see more of the TABOOXJUMP collabo!
The new Zeto makes an appearance at the Louis Vuitton show during Paris Fashion Week on the heels of Taboo and in the company of the Peas. I spoke to him yesterday and he assured me that fortunately, everything was cool regarding the debacle with Perez Hilton in Toronto. These guys and gal, always look so damn fresh!
The Peas are literally everywhere. When I get in a cab, turn on the radio, watch TV and even when I’m just walking around. They are truly ubiquitously omnipresent and they are doing it in style wearing JUMP! I have to thank them and Taboo in particular for all the support. But it’s just the beginning. Look at how dope that Zeto looks on Taboo!!!!! It’s an exclusive one-off. I need those for myself.
And then he whips out the signature JSD satin shoe bags!
They did another few killer performances. Listen at the very end for the GO GO JUMP JUMP!! I’m totally McLovin the LOVE!!
See more of them on Dipdive.
Love the shoutout to JUMP JUMP! Listen for it at 2:19.
FFANY stands for Fashion Footwear Association of New York. It’s like the mini fashion week for shoes. Honestly, it’s not usually very exciting though I hear in the old days it was something else. However, this season’s has been something special. It started when I received some shoes I’d been waiting for night and day for weeks. We’ve had and continue to have amazing success with the Vanquish in all the beautiful materials. A while back when I’d met Taboo and The Black Eyed Peas, he mentioned we should do a collabo. Light bulbs flickering and Boom Boom Pow, I kindly asked Larry to put some of our best materials on our newest and soon to be hottest style, the Zeto for Tab. And boy did he deliver. Here are the results.
And Captain Lawrence outdoes himself again. So after what turned out to be a really productive afternoon (read wine and cheese consumption) at the showroom with Zappos, I had to meet Taboo at the store to present him with these shoes for our project and on the way I saw Shawn Pean, my buyer from Saks waiting for a cab with two of his colleagues so Marco, Chris and I scooped him and his crew up in the Jumpmobile (an old school Benz ML). Mind you, I had only seen these the day before and so they were truly making their debut but of course I had to show Shawn and of course, he loved them! More light bulbs and we we decided we’d have to do an event with BEP at Saks and introduce these looks there. Brilliance.
When we got the store, Taboo showed up and we showed him the new illness. He literally said, “OH FUHSCHNIZZLES.” Just kidding. He said something else and was totally floored. I told him about introducing our collab at Saks and he was all over it.
There he is in the throne wearing the Zeto in Grey Ivis Patent and Nappa.
Here he is with the Green Purple Reflex Patent and something dope combo I don’t even know what to call yet.
And of course, here’s the whole team.
This is going to be a long post. Afterwards we had our company dinner at Antique Garage down the road and as you can see here, had a great time as usual.
Harry, our CEO is crazy. Gotta love him.
After that we hit up Richie Rich’s party for Chris Coffee at Garden in the Sky at the Cooper Square Hotel. Great party, open bar and the weather was perfect for it. I’d been wondering what the building was. It’s got a really interesting design.
So last night we hit up the Black Eyed Peas album release party at Griffin (old PM) in Meatpacking which was another dope party. Taboo was kind of enough to put me on the list to an otherwise completely exclusive event. Top shelf open bar and we saw just about every celebrity in the world there and I got to introduce Shawn and the Saks crew to the Peas. Great karma.
Kanye rolled thru.
Rihanna came too and later performed with them onstage.
Tab introduced me to Fergie who was a sweetheart.
Wilmer Valderrama had come to the store earlier that day and wore our boots!
It was an interesting couple of days. Now I need some rest!
