Asics recently released their ‘Bottle Rocket’ Gel Lyte III as part of a collab with well-noted hip-hop sneakerhead, Wale, and now they’re teaming up with another major sneaker collector in the music industry.
Chris Brown took to instagram to officially announce that Asics are his ‘new wave’ and that a collaborative project with the brand is in the works.
Note: The pair shown on his IG is NOT his collab with Asics.
It seems like every brand is aiming to create some line of product with the hip-hop industry nowadays. From the Adidas Yeezy Boost and the ‘OVO’ Jordans to the Reebok x Kendrick Lamar collab and the Meek Mill x PUMA joints.
Hell, even Ewing Brand went in on a project with Fabolous and Teyana Taylor.
While we await official images of CB’s first sneaker collab, let us know what you think of the move by Asics and if you’re feeling all the hip-hop sneaker collabs as of late.
