rw_rsneakerRappers having their own sneakers is nothing new, starting with 50 having his G-Unit line with Reebok, The Game with 310, Lupe with Reebok and Converse, and most recently kanYe with Nike. Well Jay-Z doesn’t like to be left out as he is starting his own line of sneakers under his Rocawear brand. The R+ Evolution doesn’t look terrible, but really Jay? This is the best you could do? I mean the Yeezys are not the best either, but at least it looked somewhat new. These just look like a book version of the Air Force 1 without the swoosh. There’s another pic after the jump with a better view so voice your opinion on Jay’s sneakers in the comments. The Blueprint 3 better not be like this.

UPDATE: Thanks to one of my readers for pointing out that I was totally off on this as Jay had his own line with Reebok earlier too. I totally forgot about the S.Carter line which was somewhat popular back in the day.  These will probably be more popular than them, but not nearly as the Air Yeezys.

  1. please check your history. jay-z was the first with a shoe deal, with reebok (the S. Carter Collection), everyone else followed. this is his first shoe out of his own brand (the rocawear brand). He is not the first (Master P with P. Miller), but I am sure it will be the first successful one.
