Vicksburg entrepreneur debuts shoe line



After months of learning business techniques, planning his introduction to the shoe business and perfecting his design, Vicksburg resident Trevyon Wilson has launched a new shoe line, Trill Vibes.

Handmade and fitted with genuine Italian leather, Wilson’s shoe is made for everyone.

“The shoe represents all walks of life,” said Wilson. “No matter where you come from, maintain and walk with style, that’s our motto.”

With the support of his partner, Lesleigh Jackson, Wilson put his plan into action, but there were a few challenges.

“Before locating the company that could actually make the shoe, it was just like we had an idea, but it all happened organically,” he said. “We had to do pre-orders before we even hit the production stage, so we had to sell a shoe without even seeing it, and we did that. It was a crazy process but we did that and accomplished that goal.”

His inspiration to create the shoe came from wanting to offer a unique service to patrons.

“What inspired me was basically trying to expand and do something that has never been done before in our generation,” Wilson said. “I’m only 27,and I believe that I’m the only person to do this in my generation.”

Currently, Wilson sells the shoe via an online boutique, but he plans to open a brick and mortar store in the future.

“It is our plan to open up our own store,” he said. “I think we kind of jumped the gun by creating our own purse line, but it is our plan.”

Wilson hopes to go far with his brand, Trill Vibes, but he credits his progress to his faith.

“If it weren’t for God, then this whole situation wouldn’t be what it is today,” he said.
