A$AP Ferg Goes Sneaker Shopping

Harlem rap star A$AP Ferg appears on the latest episode of “Sneaker Shopping” on Complex, where he¬†visits Flight Club in New York City.

During the episode, the rapper reminisces about his love for Air Force 1s while growing up in Harlem, he shares a story about wearing a pair of Jordans so small his feet were bleeding, and his ongoing partnership with Adidas.

“I went to go visit some family members, I was so thirst to get these Jordans, and I had got them in the wrong size,” Ferg explains. “It was a small size. In the hood you can get away with squeezing your feet into some sneakers. I took the insole out and my joints was still crunched up. That whole day my feet was bleeding. I remember wanting to wear those Jordans so bad that I sacrificed my toes that day.”

Regarding¬†Adidas, he reveals that another sneaker is coming, as well as apparel. “I come from where only athletes get sneaker deals. To sell out in a day, being from Harlem, and being the only person where I’m from with a sneaker — that’s crazy. We have a capsule collection coming later this year. There’s going to be two different color ways, and it’s going to come with a jacket, T-shirt, and pants. New sneakers, different model. The new model is crazy.”

Ferg talks about A$AP Bari’s VLONE Air Force 1s, expressing how proud of him he is. “I’m crazy proud of him. He’s not a rapper, he’s the designer. Rappers look up to him for style,” he says. “I see Uzi, Yachty, Drake, LeBron James, Odell [Beckham Jr.] wearing his sneakers. They’re constantly calling me and asking me how they can get shoes. I just feel good that I have the very rare VLONES. I have the samples. I don’t have the embroidery on mine’s.”
