The most shocking sneaker news of 2015 was just announced. Chris Brown is getting a sneaker collaboration with....ASICS? According to the singer's Instagram page, the Japanese running sneaker brand is his "new wave," and his own sneaker is coming soon.

It's not surprising that Brown is getting his own sneaker. He's been a sneaker fan for quite some time, even appearing on an episode of Sneaker Shopping with Joe La Puma. The unique piece of this news is that ASICS is known for collaborating with international boutiques and the likes of Ronnie Fieg and Concepts — not entertainers.


This my new wave "Asics" (look out for my collab with Asics coming soon)

But the brand broke that mold earlier this year with a project with Wale. There are no details on this collab yet, but it seems likely that this will be a big profile sneaker release in the nearing months.
