Billionaire Boys Club branding can also be spotted on the sneakers, namely the heel tabs feature the “B” logo and the tongues sport the “Astronaut” logo.

The tank top has a White base, topped with a Green-colored palm tree print all over and an “Astronaut” logo at the front. The jersey is made up of cotton and the track jacket is made up of French terry cotton, both sporting similar color schemes and branding.
