We take a look back at some of the best rapper-trainer collaborations. Did you wear any?
Kendrick's second addition with Reebok is for the Reebok Classic Leathers. This time Kendrick has stayed true to Reebok's Classic leather look, compared to his last designs that nodded to his hometown LA.
Kanye's second Adidas trainer collaboration is a black and grey version of his original Yeezy Boost. Like its predecessor, its made from primeknit, premium leathers and a full-length boost midsole.
Tyler The Creator has continued his association with Vans, by releasing his third collection with brand. The Golf Wang x Vans are colourful and feature the traditional Vans trademark alongside a variety of different patterns.
Pharrell has collaborated with Bee Line and Timberland to create "The Blue Boot". Its a traditional all blue Timberland workboot with blue laces and a wheat coloured coil along.
The original Yeezy Boost colour-way is entirely white, black and grey apart from some red stitching on the heel tab, has been slated for a 27th June release date. Will you be buying them?
Despite not releasing his 'Boys Don't Cry' album in July as he announced, Frank has worked with Vans to create this new banana-like colour way for the Sk8 Hi's.
K.Dot's sneakers come with a positive message (of course they do): each pair has a blue and red shoe representing the colours of LA gangs the Bloods and Crips. The inside of the tongue also is embodied with the word "neutral", part of an effort to bring Kendrick's hometown together regardless of affiliation.
When Nicki unveiled her custom Pinkprint Jordans, she said that they are "just a taste of a secret about to be revealed." Oh, she also asses, "Yeezy's aint seein these!" Picture: Instagram
The one-off Chris Brown customisation of Kanye West's Adidas Yeezy Boost is unique to Breezy and features Kanye in 'College Dropout' mode.
Although his own brand, so not technically a partnership, Pharrell's trainers with Ice Cream are representative of his style down to a T, so they make the cut. Picture: PA
Earlier this week Drake shared a picture of his new Jordan's samples, announcing; "Growing up, I'm sure we all idolized this guy, he goes by the name of Michael Jordan. So today, I came to Portland and officially became inducted into the Team Jordan family." Picture: Instagram
A$AP Rocky hooked up with Jeremy Scott to create his own model of Adidas Originals 'The Black Flag.' The all black canvas shoes with stars and stripes were well received. Picture: Facebook
It was the trainer that no one thought would actually arrive, but Nike dropped Kanye's 2nd edition Yeezy, Red October, in February 2014. The surprise release came out of no where and saw the trainer sell out in just 11 minutes.
Here's Kanye's initial Nike release 'Nike Air Yeezy' - a partnership he revealed he was unhappy with in his recent but already notorious Sway interview. Picture: PA
He says he'll be the 'Tupac of product' - could it have been his collab with high end designer Louis Vuitton that set him on that path? The trainers costs around $1000 a hit, that's a pricey pair of kicks. Picture: PA
Kanye West recently revealed his Nike days are over, with the brand confirming: "For 2014, we welcome to the adidas family one of the most influential cultural icons of this generation, Kanye West." Watch this space. Picture: Splash
Lil Wayne teamed up with skateboard-heavy footwear brand SUPRA this year for his own line called SPECTRE. They're high end and slightly over the top (is that a leopard print pair we saw?) Picture: Instagram
Everyone went crazy for Big Sean's snakeskin-print hightop version of the Adidas shoe tell classic. Remember buying a pair back in 11'? Picture: PA
A$AP's not the only one to team up with Jeremy Scott - last year Nicki Minaj became the brand ambassador. The range was bright, distinct and loud - like Nicki.
Check out Jay Z looking fresh-faced at the launch of Carter Collection for Reebok – he was the first non-athlete to get a signature shoe with the brand and the S. Carter became the fastest-selling shoe in Reebok history. Picture: PA
50 Cent's G-Unit Clothing Company took off so much so that Reebok gave it a signature shoe.
We loved Wiz Khalifa's Converse updates when they came out earlier this year, classic Chuck Taylor with a padded high top. Picture: PA
He never brought out his own signature Reebok but Rick Ross fronted the campaign for these fresh Reebok Classics that are, well, classic.
