The streets have been buzzing about sports footwear giants Nike and Adidas signing rappers (Drake and Kanye West) to exclusive partnership deals. Neither Drake nor Kanye seem to be athletically inclined. In fact, both men lean toward the Metrosexual side of the fashion aisle. Kanye kept the buzz going last night by announcing a release date for his new Kanye West x Adidas shoe line.
In a recent radio interview with Chicago’s Stylz & Roman, West announced that the collaboration would debut in September (certainly he meant of 2o14). Kanye also went on to say that the line will feature both footwear and men’s and women’s sportswear and will be housed in standalone stores specific to the collection itself. West also went on to say, “I’ve been under the wings, playing it the right way at Nike and everything, but I’ve wanted to create more and not been able to create more for no reason.”
