Adidas Originals reveals a fascinating new project together with Jeremy Scott and rapper A$AP Rocky. Jeremy Scott decided to work on the JS Wings 2.0 sneaker for this collaboration. The sneaker comes in a black canvas color with tonal black stars featured throughout the upper wings of the sneaker, basically creating his very own version of the American flag.
“The Harlem resident, who released his Billboard topping debut album ‘Long. Live. A$AP’ in January of this year, inspired Scott to re-make his classic JS FLAG Wings 2.0 trainer, A$AP’s personal favorite from the Jeremy Scott x Adidas Originals line.
Jeremy Scott and Rocky’s friendship goes way back: long before Rocky name-checked Scott and his Adidas collaboration in his ‘Out Of This World’ track, the rapper wore JEREMY SCOTT Adidas trainers in the video for ‘Purple Swag’. Scott looked towards Rocky´s lifestyle, attitude, interests and personal style when re-imagining his classic winged trainer. Scott took inspiration from Rocky´s artwork for the ‘Long. Live. A$AP’ album, which features a black and white version of the American flag.”
So we take a closer look into the upcoming collaboration between Adidas Originals and A$AP Rocky and Jeremy Scott JS WINGS silhouette. Expected to be limited in quantities, the ‘BLACK FLAG’ rendition of the JS WINGS 2.0 will see an official drop on September 28, although a pre-sale is now in effect here, with a price set at $250 USD.
