On Episode 9 of the Sneaker History Podcast, Nick Engvall, Robbie Falchi, and Mike Guillory, discuss the endorsement deal and collaborative release from Donald Glover and adidas. The early release of the Childish Gambino x adidas collab showcases a very simple and pre-distressed silhouette. Will it prevent the guys from copping a pair?

Also on this episode of the Sneaker History Podcast, J. Cole is apparently the latest artist to sign with PUMA. The news comes from a post by Usain Bolt, PUMA’s most famous athlete, who shared a photo of a PUMA company event that showed J. Cole as “part of the PUMA family,” according to Bolt. Will we see a signature shoe for J. Cole in the future? The guys weigh in on how his approach to hip hop could result in the best collab we’ve seen from PUMA. That is if J. Cole takes the same “student of the game” approach to creating footwear.
