Original Story: Los Angeles rapper Nipsey Hussle has linked arms with Reebok on a bright blue Classic Nylon model that nods to two of his hometown clans — the LA Dodgers and the Rollin 60’s Crips gang.
This version of the retro silhouette features a bright blue suede and mesh upper with white snakeskin overlays that make-up Reebok’s signature insignia. Nipsey’s famous song “Rich Rolling” is embroidered on the heel tab while the rapper’s neighborhood streets — Crenshaw and Slauson — are embossed on the suede heel counter. Special graphic-printed insoles and inner tongue tabs add to the thematic pair, while Reebok Classic logos throughout maintain the shoe’s old school look.
The Nipsey Hussle x Reebok Classic Nylon will drop on February 17 at select Reebok stockists. Share your thoughts on this model in the comments below and for more collaborative sneakers, another Kendrick Lamar x Nike Cortez that may be releasing soon.
