Drake Flaunts Special Edition Nike Air Max Plus
If you thought Drake was preparing to join the Adidas team, think again. On Sunday night (Aug. 19), Drizzy hopped on Instagram to show that he's still down with the Swoosh, unveiling a special edition of his Nike Air Max Plus.
The all-black sneaker features an exposed shoe lace system that covers the majority of the shoe and includes light blue accent on the shank. While it's uncertain if the sneaker will be getting a full release in the future, it seems like this shoe is currently only for the Toronto rapper's feet. "For stage use," Drake wrote in the caption.
Following the release of Pusha-T's "The Story of Adidon" diss in May, it was believed that Drake would be joining team three stripes to launch a new line named after his son. "The Adidas situation is this. The child...allegedly his new Adidas line is called Adidon, which is named after Adonis, his son," Pusha claimed. "But we couldn't know about your child until you started selling sweatsuits and sneakers?"
While it appears Drake is staying with team Nike for now, fans think the rapper also took a shot at Adidas on Travis Scott's "Sicko Mode." On the track, Drizzy raps, "Jesus Christ (yeah), checks over stripes (yeah)/That's what I like (yeah), that's what we like (yeah)."
Up next for Drake, the Canadian MC will continue his Aubrey and The Three Migos tour in Toronto on Aug. 21. The trek will continue through Nov. 17 when it wraps up in Atlanta.
