lil wayne confirms partnership with supra Lil Wayne Confirms Partnership With Supra

The man who played a major role in the Southern rap movement (coining the generation-defining term ‘bling’ in the process) has embraced the world of skate head-on, crediting the sport as one of his “pure passions” and as a soul-searching endeavor that has proven to be as rewarding as it is entertaining. Some time ago, Lil’ Wayne hinted at a partnership with a footwear brand and our readers chimed in with some conjecture, but Lil’ Wayne will put that discussion to rest as he confirms a partnership with Skate/Lifestyle brand Supra during a recent interview with MTV. Lil’ Wayne and Supra seem to be a fitting match, so it’s exciting to see what the brand has in store for one of the most unique cross-over superstars of the generation. Your thoughts on an upcoming Supra x Lil’ Wayne signature shoe? Peep the full video interview below and let us know what you think.

Lil’ Wayne rocking the latest Jordan Brand release is, without much surprise, a pretty good fit. The hip-hop artist known for his eccentric and personal mode of fashion is like a walking contemporary pop-art banner, representing a rainbow of colors in some of the most unusual outfits like indoor snow-board boots, jeans over leggings over Jeremy Scott sneaks, wearing fitted caps above a hoodie – in short, he challenges the style ‘norm’ evidenced by other hip-hops artists who wear fitted suits, bowties, lens-less glasses frames, and other ‘dapper’ garments. During a recent stay out in Los Angeles, Lil’ Wayne was spotted rocking the Jordan Son of Mars ‘Pop Art’ going partially unstrapped on both feet to give the shoe another method of ‘wearability’. Without question, the biggest recent news headlines involving the YMCMB star is his verbal confirmation of a signature shoe with a major shoe brand, but he’s already cancelled out as Nike and Reebok as the involved party. Like how Wayne rocked ‘em? Check out the extensive gallery below and let us know what you think. via lilwaynehq

Lil’ Wayne Confirms Signature Shoe With Major Shoe Brand

February 27th, 2012 by | 44 comments

lil wayne confirms sneaker with shoe brand Lil Wayne Confirms Signature Shoe With Major Shoe Brand

Today’s hip-hop stars have become worldwide fashion icons, with the general public looking up to the likes of Kanye West, Jay-Z, and Pharrell for fashion and style tips above the latest tracks and beats. Few go on as far as emulating the exact style of Lil’ Wayne, who has gained a reputation of owning one of the most unique and eccentric selections of personal threads. Wearing hats above hoodies, snowboard boots indoors, or his penchant for Jeremy Scott’s most animalistic offerings are just some of his more recent ensembles, but if you’re really drawn to that type of get-up, things are about to get interesting because Lil’ Wayne, in an interview with Vibe, just confirmed plans of releasing his own shoe with a major sneaker brand. He does note that it’s “not a Nike or Reebok” or with his own brand Trukfit, and that deal itself is about as good as done – he just needs to sign the dotted line. Any guesses? Maybe his own co-collaboration with adidas and Jeremy Scott? Maybe some super-duper high-top with Supra? How will it compare to the Nike Air Yeezy or the Reebok x Swizz Beatz? Chime in with your thoughts in the comments area below and let us know what you think.

Last night’s Lakers/Heat show was certainly a hot ticket in South Beach as notable hip-hop celebrities Lil’ Wayne and Ludacris were spotted at the game sitting -where else – courtside. Both spectators came to see the Kobe vs. LeBron duel, with Ludacris watching intently while wearing the Air Jordan VII ‘Olympic’ (dropping later this year) and Lil’ Wayne munching on some popcorn while wearing the Air Jordan III ‘Black/Cement’. Red/Blue shorts, sunglasses, a multi-colored beanie – it must’ve been a toned-down evening for Wayne, but Luda kept it clean by matching his t-shirt-and-jeans outfit with his kicks. Check out both celebrities after the jump and let us know who had the better ‘fit! via ESPN.

Lil’ Wayne sure attends a lot of Heat games for someone who isn’t a Heat fan. The hip-hop artist made some headlines last season for making some comments regarding LeBron and Wade’s “refusal” to acknowledge Lil’ Wayne during a regular season game, who sat courtside. Tunechi was spotted once again sitting in the front row during last night’s Hawks/Heat match-up wearing the Nike Air Yeezy ‘Net’, matching it with an Earl Sweatshirt sweatshirt. Other figments of Weezy fashion included the patented fitted hat above the hoodie and spotted shorts. Check out Lil’ Wayne and the Yeezys after the jump and let us know what you think. via ESPN.

d12 all star recap summary Dwight Howards D12 Celebrity All Star Game Recap

The ‘other’ NBA season continued down in Florida when Dwight Howard hosted the D12 Foundation Celebrity All-Star Game at the the University of Central Florida. This game featured a bit of a twist; the two teams were divided up into New School and Old School, with the former consisting of current NBA players and the latter featuring former NBA stars like Penny Hardaway and Steve Francis. The kicks spotted on court had a heavy ‘Air Penny’ theme, as Penny himself wore the Nike Zoom Rookie ‘Memphis Blues’ during warm-ups and switched up to the all-white Foamposite One 1-of-1 PEs for the game. Other notables included Lil’ Wayne’s Binary Blue Zoom Rookies (he coached the ‘New School’ squad) and Earl Clark’s Glow In The Darks, Gilbert Arenas’ Air Jordan VI ‘Orlando’ Customs, Steve Franchise’s Air Jordan 8.0, Quentin Richardson’s Air Jordan XI ‘DMP’, and Dwight Howard’s adiPower Howard. Check out the additional images from this great charity event below and let us know who takes the crown for the best kicks! Thanks to @notmattg!

When was the last time you saw Lil’ Wayne in Air Jordans? Lil’ Wayne’s taste in sneaker is undoubtedly one of the more eccentric ones out there, because in today’s age of Air Jordans and Nike Basketball, Wayne prefers low-key Vans skaters and Chucks or flamboyant Jeremy Scott creations. The last time we caught Lil’ Wayne in the Air Jordan XI was over a year ago, when he performed alongside Eminem and Drake at the 2010 Grammy Awards, and we couldn’t pass up the chance to show the New Orleans native wearing the 2011 Air Jordan XI ‘Concord’ while he was attending last week’s Chris Brown concert. Check out Lil’ Wayne in the Concords below and stick with Sneaker News for more ‘Concord’ sightings as we approach the official release date in late December.
