Check out some of the discussion below and view the entire discussion here.
What excites you about this third adidas collaboration?
Well, they say the third time’s a charm. This is my third release with adidas. This one is a first time hybrid. The first two were just spins on the initial EQT silhouette. This one has the Boost technology, the Primeknit, as well as the nuances that I brought to the previous EQT styles.
What makes your sneakers Pusha T?
What I’ve done with the EQT just in terms of incorporating the street backstory, people will look and have seen the shoes twice before so when they see the fishscale nuances, will know it’s Pusha T. This is synonymous with his brand and in his life.
What’s the perfect outfit to wear with this new Pusha T Ultra Boost EQT “Grayscale?”
Being selfish, I’d say wear something monochromatic and total opposite of gray so the shoes get all the shine. And shout out to Ari Marcopoulus, he’s a G.O.A.T.-level photographer.
Do you have any thoughts about what [fellow adidas collaborator and G.O.O.D. Music founder] Kanye West said in regards to supporting Donald Trump?
No, I don’t. But wouldn’t be the first time Kanye and I disagreed on something.
