In 2014, rappers are given sneakers with increasing frequency. And we don’t mean “given” in the sense of blessed with promotional pairs ahead of the release date, but rather they’ve had more and more opportunities to channel their personae into limited footwear collections thanks to the support of sneaker companies. This process didn’t happen overnight though, it took a couple of decades of endorsements before the floodgates really opened as far as special SMUs went. You of course have to give credit to Run DMC back in the ’80s for championing their adidas, and to a lesser extent LL Cool J for linking up with Troop (Although fellow Queens rapper MC Shan didn’t approve).

Big Sean’s got another shoe coming with adidas Originals. The good news is that they will be a little bit more widely available than his last one, that super hard to track down blood red “Detroit Player” adidas Pro Model II. The same basic formula is in place for this last pair: there’s the higher hitting silhouette along with the snakeskin debossing and gunmetal accenting. Personal details this time around all point to Sean’s upcoming Hall of Fame album, one which will hit a couple days before the shoes’ August 31st release date.

Big Sean and adidas Originals are just getting started. What appears to be coming next from the two is this, a jet black pair of the adidas Pro Model “Detroit Player”. You’ll recall that the first version of that shoe, a deluxe red getup, was an immediate sellout in the limited spaces it landed at and shortly thereafter became one of the most valuable second-market sneakers from the company in years. Can the follow up, murdered out version (a shoe Sneaker News first showed you back at All-Star) be just as successful? Let us know what you think and skip to the 6:40 mark in the video below to catch the shoes in action. Also, keep in mind Sean mentions a release date for them close to that of his forthcoming album Hall of Fame, currently slated for an August 27th drop.

The man was recently spotted rocking the Big Sean collab on stage, flashy gold dubrae and all, at a private concert put on by adidas Football. Get a quick recap from the concert below and stay tuned to see if Wale continues to sport adidas on the regular.
