Jason Derulo always has a lot of fashion ideas in his head.

Singer Jason Derulo is planning to give away the majority of his 1,000-strong shoe collection.

The Want to Want Me star is a self-confessed "sneakerhead" with racks and racks of footwear in his home, but to mark his new deal as an investor in luxury mens streetwear label LVL XIII, Jason is selling off his mostly unworn shoes because he no longer needs them.

"(I have) like, a thousand (pairs), maybe?" he told People Magazine. "I don’t wear shoes that many times. And I just love all kinds of shoes.

"I'm gonna be wearing LVL XIII, like, up the wazoo, so all the other brands that I have, I’m not gonna be wearing them anymore, so I’m gonna give them all away."

Jason told the outlet that any fan who is a size 10 is "gonna be lucky!" but didn't reveal any further details on how and when he would start parting with his beloved collection.

Instead, the singer opened up about how he came to be involved in the brand, which was founded by designer Antonio Brown in 2013.

"I always really wanted to have my own line, be able to utilise all the ideas and knowledge that I've garnered over the years," Jason explained. "This was a perfect opportunity because I was a fan of what Antonio has done in the past. Now we get to take both of our heads and put 'em together and create something I believe will change the face of footwear forever."

Jason will also be the face of the brand, and will be at the launch in New York next month (July16).

LVL XIII - pronounced Level 13 - has 13 styles which range from sandals to boots. They were created by Italian artisans and are unique thanks to their double outsoles made of leather.
