From the ground up

Today adidas Originals announces an interesting new project together with Jeremy Scott and with Harlem 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 colorway with tonal black stars featured throughout the upper, essentially creating his 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.”

More information on the release of the adidas Originals x Jeremy Scott x A$AP Rocky JS WINGS 2.0 BLACK FLAG sneakers will follow soon.
