2 Chainz Teases Ewing Athletics Collab That Nods Louis Vuitton’s Iconic Pattern

In 2017, rapper 2 Chainz will become the latest artist to collaborate with Ewing Athletics.

The frequent Kanye West collaborator took to Instagram on Thursday to share a preview of the sneakers he designed. “I call this collection the ‘Louis Ewing.’ Very expensive taste, the fabric is crazy,” 2 Chainz says in the clip. “So when you’re taking pictures of me onstage, I’m moonboot walking.”

Based on the brief clip, the 2 Chainz x Ewing Athletics will feature a checkerboard pattern reminiscent of Louis Vuitton’s iconic Damier pattern. The sneaker also boasts a reflective upper.

2 Chainz is no stranger to sneaker collaborations; the rapper also worked with Adidas Originals in 2014 to create the “2 Good to be T.R.U.” Top Ten.

The 2 Chainz x Ewing Athletics collaboration will be released in 2017, but you can shop the Ewing Athletics holiday collection right now.
