Adidas officially debuted it's third design project with Big Sean this month. And unlike the rapper's first two collabs with the brand, which were on adidas Pro Models, Sean used the Metro Attitude Hi as his canvas. The rapper told Sole Collector why he and the brand switched up the silhouette. "We just wanted to change it up. One of my favorite adidas shoes is the Patrick Ewings," Big Sean said. "Based on me always wearing them at my shows and rocking them on stage, adidas came to me with the idea about using that shoe. It’s simple as that. We had a few meetings and worked out the design how wanted it. It is what it is."

So there you have it. Complex did a full interview with Big Sean, where he discussed eventually creating a brand new shoe and putting Kanye West on adidas before Kanye officially joined the brand. You can read it here.
