Ever since Drake replaced Kanye West as Nike‘s favourite man in rap back when Michael Jordan signed him to the brand in December, the hype for Drizzy’s design debut has been pretty much batshit insane. A trail of sneaky Instagram previews from the man himself got the people frothing, then big man basketballer Amir Johnson was spotted wearing an unreleased pair during Toronto’s home game win against the Nets and people were straight-up convulsing. To put it into perspective, a fan who was recently given a pair of the shoes by Drake at that same game put them straight on eBay and they’re currently going for $100,000. Now, the latest fuel to the fire are leaked closeup images via eBay and Instagram that give us a clearer picture of the holy sneakers.
As seen in the images above, the black sneaker (which also comes in white) is built with a black nubuck upper, signature diagonal lining and the highlight being its contrasting stingray leather sides and mudguard (plus the addition of Drake’s owl tattoo on the inner sole). Let’s be honest though, they could look like Crocs and stans would still be going mental.
