According to Portland, Oregon-based sneaker news website Sole Collector, Drake is currently talking to Adidas about a brand new sneaker deal, a report that former Sole Collector editor in chief, and current Creative Director of Nice Kicks, Nick DePaula, confirmed in tweet form a short time later.
Logic dictates that DePaula could very well be the source Sole Collector spoke with, and his past credentials certainly make him reliable; however, at the time of reporting, neither Drake’s team nor Adidas has commented on the supposed deal.
Just short of five years ago, Drake threw his weight into Jordan Brand, signing a deal with the signature shoe and athletic wear brand owned and created by the legendary basketball player Michael Jordan.
We will update this story if and when new information becomes available.
In the meantime, though, you might want to blast "Jumpman" one last time before it's suddenly removed from all streaming services.
