Nicki Minaj Reveals ‘Pinkprint’ Sneaker Collab with Nike on Instagram
Nicki Minaj kicked her notoriously swaggy style up a notch when she announced on Instagram that she was collaborating with Nike for a new sneaker. Updating the iconic Jordan Classic silhouette, Minaj debuted the “Pinkprint” edition, named after her latest album.
Take one look at the pair of kicks and you can see Minaj’s flair for color experimentation. The upper is outfitted in a light sparkly shade of pink rimmed by a bright magenta hue. The Jordan Classic “Pinkprint” also features a metallic silver shelltoe-style base and an ombre blue and purple sole with metal-tipped pink laces.
“When you’re a girl but your custom #PinkprintJORDANS are about to shit on every male rapper who’s ever stepped FOOT in the sneaker game!!!!” Minaj posted on Instagram on April 17. “This is just a taste of the secret that’s about to be revealed!!!!”
The Cash Money artist debuted the sneaker during her performance at the Jordan Brand Classic, a prestigious all-star high school basketball game at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn held earlier this month.
The Jordan Classic “Pinkprint” represents Minaj’s first foray into the sneaker industry, but she’s no stranger to the fashion world. The “Anaconda” rapper has her own clothing line at K-Mart and her own perfume with Roberto Cavalli.
No word yet on when you can expect the kicks to drop.
