Adidas Releases Snoop Dogg Shoes for All-Star Weekend

A few weeks ago we introduced you to the tight-fitting jerseys Adidas was planning to debut this weekend at the All-Star Game. In addition to the jerseys, we shared the news that both Derrick Rose and Dwight Howard would have special shoes unveiled for the break (both athletes will appear at Foot Locker locations in the LA-area this weekend for their shoe releases — email us for details).

Keeping up with our All-Star weekend swag watch, Adidas has partnered with Snoop and released a limited edition shoe for the weekend called the adiPure Snoop Dogg. Some of the details on the gear: The adiPure Snoop Dogg is filled with Snoop’s personal signatures including a tongue design featuring a basketball hoop with sneakers dangling as a call-out to hoops and power lines from his 213 neighborhood, call-outs to his church league, Snoop-A-Loop, 21st Street and Long Beach, and the shoe’s purple outsole features the Snoop Dogg eyes logo and “Doggy” and “Style” on the left and right shoes. They retail for $100 which is a nice chunk of change, but won’t break you.

You can also follow along with Snoop as he takes you through a VIP look at All-Star Weekend. Here’s Snoop’s first video as he checks in:

Beckham Teaches Snoops Kids Soccer

Usually I like to stay Beckham-free around here, specifically when talking about the plastic puppet they call Posh, but this news is cause for our attention. We all have heard about stars providing lessons for other celebrities, usually at a large cost. Fitting right in as Ben Maller points out, Snoop asked his homie David Beckham to teach his kids how to play soccer. Said Snoop,

“David and I go back years. I asked him to come over and do me this favour as he is the one who has made everyone wake up and pay attention to soccer over here.

“He is terrific with my kids and they had a great time as he taught them how to shoot and score the perfect goal. That’s a partnership you never thought you would see – Snoop and Beckham.” And Snoop – real name Calvin Broadus – is so grateful to Beckham for teaching his kids Corde, Cordell, and Cori the basics of soccer, he has offered to return the favour and give young Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz lessons in lyricism.

You know, I thought I had seen some odd couples in my time, but this one might top the list. The surprising thing is that Beckham’s presence in the U.S. has actually impacted someone’s life here. Who knew?
