The song “Tip Toe Wing In My Jawwdinz” made big waves in 2014. Unfortunately for RiFF RAFF though, those “Jawwdinz” won’t bare his namesake.
A couple of days ago, the Houston native posted a picture on Instagram of a prototype Jordan Brand sneaker baring his name and trademark neon colors. He relayed in the post’s caption that the shoe would be released this summer for $750 along with an autographed copy of his forthcoming album.
Now, the jig is up.
According to HipHopWired, Jordan Brand currently has no plans on doing a collaboration with RiFF RAFF, as the rumored joint venture was news to them.
“At this time there are currently no plans for this shoe or a collaboration with this individual,” a company representative said in a statement. The shoe in question would likely have been an Air Jordan 5. The Neon Icon also claimed his sneaker would’ve been released via Champs Sports, Foot Locker, Foot Action and Flight Club.
