Wale Leaks New Collab Release Date + Says First Shoe "Did Jordan Numbers"
Whether it's during an interview or on an album, Wale always has something interesting to say. The last time we heard from the Maryland native was on his incredible song "White Shoes" and the release of his first sneaker collaboration. Both the album and the shoes did extremely well.
During an interview with The Breakfast Club on Power 105.1, Wale went on to detail to the success of the Asics Gel Lyte III "Bottle Rocket" he designed with Villa:
They came out, the Bottle Rocket Asics. We did Jordan, Michael Jordan numbers with them jawns.
While we can't confirm what the production numbers on the "Bottle Rocket" Asics Gel Lyte III's were (although no one is selling Jordan numbers in terms of collabs), we can verify that the sneakers were a successful sell out. Now that's not the only sneaker news that Wale revealed.
Shortly after the interview aired, Complex published a list of the top 25 most influential people in sneakers where Wale was not mentioned. This led to some tame shots being thrown at the list, but also Wale revealed the release date for his next sneaker collaboration.
No photos were leaked, but Wale x Villa drop their next collaboration on November 21st. Stay tuned for updates.
