Portland-born rapper Aminé is taking the fashion scene by storm with his upcoming collaboration with New Balance. Having served as a brand ambassador for New Balance since 2022, it comes as no surprise that the artist has now secured his own pair of kicks in partnership with the Boston-based sportswear brand.

Aminé's love for sneakers is no secret, having been featured in various campaigns by New Balance in the past. It was only a matter of time before the artist curated a collection of his own, offering his unique take on one of the brand's iconic silhouettes. While the details of the collaboration remain tightly under wraps, sneakerheads are eager to find out which Made in USA silhouette the rapper will put his spin on. Based on Aminé's previous choices, it's reasonable to assume that he might choose from popular styles like the 990v3, 2002R, and 992. To build buzz around the highly anticipated release, the rapper took to social media to share a teaser video featuring a billboard in his hometown. The billboard boasts wooden baskets of bananas (a nod to his hit single Banana, perhaps?) alongside the words "A Kid From Portland Has His Own Sneaker." It's clear that Aminé's sneaker collab has fans buzzing and eagerly awaiting further details on the much-anticipated release.
