big sean adidas originals collective 8 Big Sean and Sneaker News Talk adidas Detroit Player & More

Big Sean’s acute sense of style has been documented by hip-hop publications and urban fashion radars for years, and last December, we finally got a chance to experience his personal taste’s with the release of Detroit Player – a footwear collaboration with adidas Originals  that paid tribute to his roots as well as the iconic status of the Pro Model. During adidas Originals’ launch event of the adidas Originals Collective by Footaction, Sneaker News and special guest Big Sean got to chat about shoes, style, the future of his partnership with adidas, and more.

Of course, this was after the star spent a lengthy time posing for photos and signing autographs for his devoted fans, but even then, the G.O.O.D. Music member was ready, prepared, and willing to give us his insights. As  the legendary DMC of Run DMC stated during a quick chat at the event, adidas style isn’t meant to be untouchable, but for the every-day person who wants to live that lifestyle, and given Big Sean’s thoughts during our chat, that mindset of unity and not exclusivity is certainly consistent.

Big Sean would have you know that nobody is fresher than his chosen group of associates, and that includes the Brand with the Three Stripes.  Accordingly, the Finally Famous rapper has remixed the wild animal Shelltoe look he’s shown off a few times, sliding from cats to reptiles for a design that, apparently unlike those leopard printed Superstars, will actually make it to retail.  The ‘Detroit Player’ adidas Originals Pro Model makes reference to Biggie Smalls by way of Sean’s cameo on a recent Nicki Minaj track about bees, but the stinging element in play here is a serpant’s fang instead.  Have a closer look at the neckbreaking red snakeskin Pro Model after the jump, let us know how they compare to Kanye’s all-red Louis Vuitton Don and stick with Sneaker News for release info.
