A$AP Rocky Talks About Why He Teamed Up With adidas Originals & Jeremy Scott For His Wings 2.0 “Black Flag” Sneakers

Recently, A$AP Rocky joined forces with designer adidas jeremy scott to create a new pair of sneakers for adidas Originals. Those sneakers, which are called the adidas Originals Wings 2.0 “Black Flag” sneakers, are a fresh take on Jeremy Scott’s “Wings” sneakers. There’s nothing particularly outrageous about the sneakers—they’re done up in all black and, by Jeremy Scott’s standards, are actually quite tame—but they’re going to be must-haves for a lot of sneakerheads out there this fall. So Sneaker News just got up with Rocky to talk about why he decided to collaborate with adidas Originals and Jeremy Scott on the sneakers. You can read the full interview over here. But we’ve included some of the interview’s highlights below…

Rocky on why he chose to work with adidas Originals: “It was just me admiring the brand and growing up on it. There’s just a tradition that I felt comes with the brand.”

Rocky on why he loves Jeremy Scott’s style so much: “He just always thought out the box. Everything about him was just out the box. If it wasn’t extra weird, it was just cool designs. I always like his concepts and it’s always interesting and intriguing.”

Rocky on how he actually came up with the design for the “Black Wings” sneaker: “With this shoe, it was Jeremy’s—it was always out there. He just did some stuff based off or inspired by me and my style and my whole crew in general…I just told him like, ‘Yo, it need Teflon material,’ stuff like that. And he was like, ‘Yeah, we can make that possible.’ He got the closest thing to it and it was just dope.”

It certainly is. The collaboration hits select adidas retailers today, though the “Black Flag” sneaker will likely be hard to get. Will you be trying to pick up a pair?

First there was the exciting announcement, followed by a brief preview of the shoe, now cheap adidas shoes, Jeremy Scott, and A$AP Rocky are ready to release their celebrated collaboration, the JS Wings 2.0 “Black Flag.” One of the most anticipated sneaker releases of this early fall season, the Originals line forges friends from two different worlds to bring forth a shoe inspired by a hip hop artist while crafted by a top designer. Until now, much of what we know about the shoe was speculation. Today, official images and release info have finally been revealed.

This premium all black sneaker celebrates the bond between these longtime friends and takes cues from Rocky’s lifestyle, attitude, interests and personal style. Scott also takes inspiration from Rocky’s Long Live A$AP cover art over the shoe that highlights stars and stripes married to a custom American flag and embroidery throughout. Pried at $250 USD, look for the “Black Flag” available on September 28th at cheap adidas shoes retail stores globally.

Dunk High with The adidas JS Wings 2.0 “BBall”

Revered fashion designer, adidas jeremy scott, has produced another variation of his popular adidas jeremy scott Wings 2.0, although sporting a more refined and subdued look compared to his signature eccentric aesthetic.

Titled “BBall,” the silhouette takes its inspiration from the original makeup of a basketball. Essentially comprised of a rubber composition covered with a tacky surface to mimic a basketball’s build, the sneaker is complemented with Black accents found on the eyelets, lining, laces and sole unit to cap off its design. Additionally, the distinctive wings component on the laces can be removed, or left on for a more dramatic flair.

On a 4-degree night in Manhattan, hours before his show at New York Fashion Week, Jeremy Scott wears an adidas jeremy scott with Mickey Mouse’s rear-end stitched onto the back of it. A blunt line of bangs cases his forehead (he’s cut his own hair since he was seven) and though the designer often wears a tough-guy scowl in photos, he’s quick to smile in person. “Ca-yooot,” he exclaims approvingly as a model slips into a teddy bear-printed dress. Bags of Flamin’ Hot Cheetos lay scattered throughout the 2,000 square-foot workspace.

We thought we’d seen it all when Nicki Minaj wore a fried chicken wing necklace, but somehow Amber Rose and 2 Chainz have managed to swing to that level of curious accessories with the cheap adidas shoes they were both spotted wearing recently.

The Spring sneakers feature a adidas jeremy scott head on the tongue of the shoe and even comes with an Adidas tee that the gorilla can change in and out of, if having a stuffed animal on your shoes wasn’t entertaining enough.

The Jeremy Scott x adidas Originals JS Wings Get A “Black Patent” Makeover

The adidas jeremy scott Originals JS Wings sneakers are, arguably, the hottest sneakers that Jeremy Scott and adidas Originals have put out over the course of the last few years. Even though it’s only 2012, the sneakers—which were originally released back in 2010—are already guaranteed to land at or near the top of a bunch of “Best of…” lists at the end of decade. But, you know what would make them even hotter? Black patent leather! As we’ve seen time and time again in the past, patent leather can make ugly sneakers look fresh and it can make sneakers that are already fresh even fresher. So, it should come as no surprise to see what it does for the winged adidas jeremy scott creations.

As you can see in the photos presented to you here, cheap adidas shoes has created a “Black Patent” version of his now-classic Jeremy Scott x adidas Originals JS Wings sneaker. It offers up a fresh take on the JS Wings and it’ll be included as a part of the Spring/Summer 2013 collection that cheap adidas shoes are putting together for adidas Originals. The sneakers will feature a black patent leather upper, black patent leather wings, and small hits of white on the inner part of the midsole of the sneaker that makes the patent leather pop even more than it already does. How fly is that?

In fact, the only bad thing about these “Black Patent” JS Wings is that you’re not going to be able to get your hands on them anytime soon. These images hit the Internet earlier this week. But, as we mentioned, these are part of Scott’s 2013 collection, so they won’t be available until next year. But, at least we know Scott is continuing to push the boundaries with his sneakers, right? We’ll be sure to remind you as we get closer to a firm release date for them.

The adidas Originals By Jeremy Scott Spring Collection Features A Sneaker With A Tail

If you haven’t noticed by now, adidas jeremy scott isn’t afraid to take chances when it comes to designing sneakers for adidas. In the past, he’s put everything from gigantic wings to extra tongues on the sneakers that’s he designed for the Three Stripes. So it should come as no surprise that the adidas Originals By Jeremy Scott Spring collection is extra kooky, extra daring, and, well, extra weird.

The wings are back on a couple of dope pairs of sneakers from the collection. There’s a pair of boots that look like they belong on a stylish cowboy. There’s a pair of sneakers that feature a tail on the back. There’s a low-top that looks like something Joe Pesci might have worn in Casino. And the pink combat boots with the locks all over them? Yikes (in a good way!). Your man has definitely gone off the deep end with a few of these designs. Following the success he’s had with adidas, it appears as though they gave him complete creative control and told him to go wild. And that’s exactly what he did.

We have to ask, though: What do you think about these sneakers? We wouldn’t get caught rocking most of these, but we also don’t completely hate any of them. In fact, if we saw someone wearing any of these, we’d give them major props for doing so. These are just strange enough to get a double take—without being so strange that they look like something only Kanye West or someone like that could pull off. So props to cheap adidas shoes for coming through in the clutch again. And props to adidas for allowing him to do so. It’s gonna get real interesting out on these streets when folks start pulling these sneaks out of the closet this spring. And we can’t wait to see it.

Did Cheap Adidas Shoes Really Just Create An adidas Originals Sneaker That Looks Like A Zebra?

Do you like animals? Do you like sneakers? Then there’s a good chance that you love everything that cheap jeremy scott has created for adidas Originals over the course of the last few years. From teddy bears to poodles, cheap jeremy scott has incorporated all kinds of animals into his adidas Originals sneakers. And somewhat surprisingly, they’ve gotten such a great response from sneakerheads that he continues to push the boundaries and create sneakers that look like animals. Just check out his latest creation in the photo above.

The sneaker that you see is being called the adidas Jeremy Scott “Zebra” and it looks like, well, a zebra. It doesn’t feature a head like some of the other animal-themed cheap adidas shoes. But it does have black and white stripes all over it, a fuzzy texture, and, of course, a gigantic zebra tail sticking out the back of it. There’s absolutely no mistaking what this sneaker is supposed to be patterned after. It’s clear that Jeremy Scott created this for all those people who want their sneakers to look like zebras (we’re sure there are a few of you out there!). And he did a good job doing it.

The adidas jeremy scott “Zebra” sneakers are available right now through select adidas retailers. What do you think about what Jeremy Scott did here? Did he nail another animal-themed sneaker? Or has he officially taken this whole animal theme a little bit too far? We happen to like his animal designs. We thought they were a little bit strange at first. But now that it’s clearly become a thing, we think Jeremy Scott might as well continue to push the envelope and create sneakers with animals prints all over them.

Let us know what you think about the latest adidas jeremy scott sale sneaker after checking out some more photos of it below.

SINGAPORE- On March 1, adidas Originals launched their latest eccentric sneaker, the JS Poodle, at the Limited Edt Chamber at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands. This sneaker features a pink poodle head accessorized with a pair of Jeremy Scott x Linda Farrow winged shades.

He has dressed many of today’s pop-culture stars such as Madonna, Kanye West, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Rihanna, A$AP Rocky, Nicki Minaj, 2NE1, and even Miss Piggy (yes, of Sesame Street.)

The event started with DJs JNR and Drem of matteblacc setting the dynamic vibe for the night. A mini-fashion show with models sporting different ways to rock the JS Poodle followed. The surprise guests of the night were the small, furry runway stars carried by each model. These poodles provided by Voices for Animals added heart and warmth to the event.

Jeremy scott adidas’outrageous designs have attracted a loyal following. In his Spring/Summer 2013 video, the designer voices, “Fashion’s everything we do. What we breathe, eat, sleep, the websites we go to, the people we hang out with, the things that we see, the choices we make, it’s what we use to make our definition of what tribe we come from.”
