It’s no secret that Wale is a true sneaker freaker. Since the first time we heard his music blarring through our speakers, footwear references have been prominent. Moreover, he’s never photographed without a fresh pair and in most cases, it’s a shoe that is yet to release. So, its only right that as adidas Originals prepares to release the highly anticipated TS Lite AMR, Wale will host a launch event in Houston in conjunction with NBA All-Star Weekend.
Leading up to the release which takes place today, adidas Originals caught up with Wale at the studio in Atlanta to talk his personal style, originality and his long tenured role as a sneakerhead. In the brief clip, the rapper in seen in the leopard-print iteration of the sneaker which may be one of the favorites from the Originals line early on in 2013. Check out the visual and if you’re in Houston, peep the event details below.
