On June 23, the Bad Bunny x Adidas Gazelle Indoor made a splash with its debut in the "San Juan" blue colorway, paying homage to his home nation of Puerto Rico. It has since been revealed that a new colorway is on the way, with the Bad Bunny x Adidas Gazelle Indoor adopting a simple yet effective "Off White/Cream" palette. A perfect sneaker staple for your Summer wardrobe, this stripped-back variation takes a minimalist approach, capitalizing on the earth-tone fashion trend that has gained popularity in recent years, deviating from the previous hot-selling design.

This sneaker features a transparent design approach, starting from the upper and flowing into the midsole, where a see-through gum sole allows the signature three stripes to remain prominent. The upper and back of the shoe boast a grey suede-like feature, while the brown gum sole is branded with 'Adidas' on the side and 'Benito' above an 'Adidas' logo on the upper. The layered aesthetic creates a versatile look, making it easy to pair with various outfits and providing inspiration for styling.

This is the second colorway to be revealed from this specific collaboration, as Bad Bunny continues to build his catalog not only musically but also through partnerships with Adidas, expanding his creative reach.

Bad Bunny first revealed the look for an "Interview Magazine" shoot, giving fans a glimpse of the design in select full-body shots. Fans were eagerly awaiting the official release of the design to the public, wondering when it would become available. Speculations suggest a Summer 2024 release, priced at $140 USD, but unfortunately, no official confirmation has been made thus far.

Most recently, Jay Z was spotted sporting an unreleased pair of sneakers, sending fans into a frenzy. It's no surprise, considering Jay Z is not publicly tied to any major sponsorships or brand deals, allowing him to freely showcase his style and preferences as one of the most recognizable and influential artists of our time. In this case, he gave a nod to another record-breaking and internationally renowned artist.
