Hip hop artist Big Sean is dating superstar diva Ariana Grande. They’ve collaborated together on her album My Everything and now they’ve been spotted holding hands at the VMAs. But there’s more to Big Sean than music and his new muse. The 26-year-old Detroit native is also busy designing sneakers.
Since 2012, Big Sean has had an endorsement deal with sportswear and athletic shoe giant Adidas. Adidas–one of the foundational brands of hip-hop culture–worked with Big Sean to release a limited edition of “Detroit Player” Pro Models with a red suede trim in 2012. His latest, The Big Sean x adidas Originals Metro Attitude, will be released September 13 at select Adidas Originals retailers. Is Big Sean’s Adidas Attitude inspired by Ariana?
