It's hard to believe, but it's now been a whole year since Tiger King premiered on Netflix and the whole world tuned in for the first group quarantine obsession.
To mark the occasion, star of the show Joe Exotic, has decided to launch his own shoe line.
The fact that he's currently in prison? That's not stopping him.
The 58-year-old is currently serving a 22-year prison sentence in the US for animal cruelty and the murder-for-hire plot of his rival Carol Baskin.
According to TMZ, Exotic is partnering with streetwear brand Odaingerous to design a line of shoes that will be called 'the Revenge collection.'
In classic Joe Exotic style, they will come in animal print, gold and Italian leather.
TMZ reports that Exotic's line will first launch with three different pairs, the Dapper Don Trainer with a wedge heel, a low top Dapper Don trainer (a reference to Baskin's missing husband Don Lewis) and a tennis shoe called Revenge Exotic 1. They range in price from $283 to $326.
This isn't the reality star's first foray into fashion –– he's also released an underwear and clothing line with the same brand. Each drop has sold out immediately.
A scripted series about Joe Exotic's life is set to film in Australia later this year, starring Nicolas Cage in the leading role.
