Tyler

Tyler, The Creator may be known for rocking — and collaborating with — Vans, but he’s switched allegiances and announced a new partnership with Converse. “CONVERSE AND I ARE FRIENDS NOW,” Tyler tweeted along with a short (yet explosive) promotional video. Tyler has been spotted wearing various colorways of the Converse One Star lately, including a possible Golf Wang pair, although it’s unclear what their collaboration has in store.

This Converse deal isn’t the only thing Tyler’s been working on: his new album Scum F*ck Flower Boy drops this Friday (July 14), followed by the premiere of his VICELAND show Nuts + Bolts on August 3.

asap ferg sneaker shopping

After discussing kicks and Kanye West with Chris Rock last week, Complex’s Joe La Puma gets down with A$AP Ferg in the latest episode of Sneaker Shopping. The Hood Pope talks about his love for Air Force 1s (aka Uptowns), A$AP Bari’s VLONE x Nike collaboration, and that time he was a little too “thirsty” for new Jordans he bought the wrong size pair (removing the insole didn’t even save his toes that day).

Before copping some new kicks, Ferg also announced a new collaboration with adidas. “We have a capsule collection coming this year,” he says. “It’s gonna be two different colorways, it’s gonna come with a jacket, t-shirt and pants. It’s gonna be extra lit.” The Harlem rapper and German brand previously teamed up in 2015 for the Traplord x adidas adi-Ease shoes, which sold out in their first day.

With what might be the biggest episode yet, Complex‘s Joe La Puma met up with NBA legend and style icon Allen Iverson in Philly (where else?) to go Sneaker Shopping.
