Yesterday, it was announced that Los Angeles rapper Nipsey Hussle linked arms with Reebok on a bright blue Classic Nylon model that nods to two of his hometown clans — the LA Dodgers and the Rollin 60’s Crips gang. However, Nipsey took to Twitter to denounce the collaboration stating it’s “unauthorized.”

He goes on to state that Reebok would be getting a letter from his lawyer. While the shoes don’t use Nipsey’s name on the shoe, there are some heavy references to his persona hat make the connection all too clear. Additionally, footwear retailers have labeled the shoe with his name on their respective release calendars.

This version of the retro silhouette features a bright blue suede and mesh upper with white snakeskin overlays that make-up Reebok’s signature insignia. Nipsey’s famous song “Rich Rolling” is embroidered on the heel tab while the rapper’s neighborhood streets — Crenshaw and Slauson — are embossed on the suede heel counter. Special graphic-printed insoles and inner tongue tabs add to the thematic pair, while Reebok Classic logos throughout maintain the shoe’s old school look.
