Since I first heard the news some time ago that Kanye West was taking his creative talents to adidas I have had one wish and one wish only – that the Sneaker gods make a collaboration with his fellow Chicagoan Derrick Rose happen.
While with Nike, Kanye’s highly coveted Yeezy line were extremely popular (I don’t think they jumped over the Jumpman, but that’s open to debate), but after one too many concert rants Ye’ never got to work in conjunction with any of the brands other spokesman.
Now with adidas, it makes perfect sense that he collaborate on designing a sneaker with it’s marquee basketball spokesman D.Rose. What will happen when you mix the humble kid from the Southside’s ideas with the creative force that is Mr. West? Only time will tell, but it looks like my wishes may soon be granted.
Watch this space, but first watch this video of D.Rose’s thoughts on the subject…
