Hip-hop artist and walking Nike billboard Wale is best known in our circles for having the most anticipated releases months in advance. The Air Max 24/7 in Neon, the Air Foamposite One ‘Metallic Pewter’, and the Zoom Huarache TR Mid ‘Green Lantern’ are just a few examples of the sick kicks that he’s had on his feet before any of us even had an opportunity to look at, and for the 2011 NBA All-Star Weekend, he brought out a little something to get our blood boiling again. Wale, who performed alongside J. Cole at the House of Blues on Friday night, wore the Nike Air Foamposite Pro ‘Dark Pine’, a shoe that isn’t even set for a release until September of this year. In the dim lighting, the Dark Pine comes off as a pure black colorway, but during a moment in the light, you can see the Dark Pine color shine through. In the Mayback Music documentary-like video, Wale can be heard mentioning something along the lines of ‘Maybach Music Foamposite’ – is he referring to his new kicks or perhaps a special PE of some sort? Check out the video and images below and stick with Sneaker News for more information as it develops.
