Wale is the ultimate sneakerhead in the new video for his Folarin II track “Tiffany Nikes.”
Shot largely inside the Diamond Supply Co. store in L.A., the video also features appearances from Paul Rodriguez and Nicky Diamonds, who designed the song’s namesake Tiffany Dunks.
To mark the release of the video, Wale is partnering with the shopping app NTWRK, where they’ll give away a coveted pair of Tiffany Nike SB Dunks for just $1. Interested participants can join via the NTWRK app, before Wale announces the winner on March 7.
“I don’t know if it is the greatest SB. I think at the time it was the most hyped one. In 2005, I feel that maybe a lot of it had to do with that it was such an original colorway that nobody ever used, which is weird because it has been a Tiffany and Co. colorway for so many years,” he said. “I never saw it on any T-shirts, apparel, sneakers, or anything before, so I was like, ‘Fuck, man, I’m just going to throw it on a shoe,’ because I made a T-shirt at the time with the logo in the color and everyone was tripping on it. When I had the opportunity to do the Nike, I did that colorway and I think people freaked out, because no one ever saw it on anything before that. What bugged people out is that I made it look all luxury with the croc skin and the silver Swoosh. It was, like, the most luxury-looking shoe at the time.”
Wale, meanwhile can next be seen alongside Jake Gyllenhaal and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II in Michael Bay’s upcoming action thriller Ambulance, which hits theaters on April 8.
