The hip hop culture has a very heavy impact on the fashion culture in today's world and one huge market where the two collide is sneakers. Rappers are getting huge sneaker deals and collaboration opportunities from major sneaker brands. There has been a surplus of hip hop millionaires releasing their own inspired shoes with an established brand over that last few years such as Kanye West with Nike, Tyga with Reebok, Lil Wayne with Supra, and now we have word that A$AP Rocky will be teaming up with Jeremy Scott from Adidas to release a special Wings 2.0 colorway called "Black Flag".
Both A$AP Rocky and Jeremy Scott get a mixed reaction to a lot of their ideas of 'good' fashion so it was only fitting for the two of them to get together and come up with a product. One of Scott's most successful creations so far is the Wings 2.0 model which will soon be dawning an all black look with stitched in stars throughout.
Release details have not yet been made available but stick with SneakerMob for that information when we receive it and let us know how you feel about current rappers creating sneakers.
