Fresh from a deal with adidas, professional gamer Ninja appears on the latest episode of Sneaker Shopping to talk the new partnership and much more. Ninja met up with Joe La Puma at Notre in Chicago as the two browsed the shelves and discussed all things footwear.
The episode begins with Ninja detailing his appreciation for Barry Sanders, as he reveals that he still watches the legendary running back's highlights before gaming competitions. He also jumps into Michael Jordan's lasting legacy as well as his impact on the city of Chicago. From there, Ninja dishes on gamers flexing in sneakers, in addition to playing against various celebrities.
Last but not least, Ninja speaks on his adidas deal, proclaiming that it is the perfect fit for him as he was a huge fan of the brand growing up. He talks being on a roster with the likes of Kanye West, Pharrell, Beyoncé, and others, in addition to working on his own personal designs.
On this week’s episode of The Dropcast, we are joined by the Patta dons Edson Sabajo and Guillaume Schmidt, who are marking the Dutch brand’s 15th anniversary with historical milestones.
