After being in the sneaker industry for so long, we’ve come to the conclusion that it is: the most versatile, most inclusive, and most profitable industry out there! Especially when it comes to sneaker collaborations with other industries! That’s why we have collaborations like:
– Sneakers x Sport Industry
– Sneakers x NFT Industry
– And, Sneaker x Music Industry
Of course, it goes a lot beyond that. The sneaker industry has collaborated with TV shows, movies, gamers, influencers, and so much more. When we say inclusive, we mean IN-CLU-SIVE. Heck, we even have a sneaker x ice cream collaboration with the Dunks x Ben & Jerry’s Chunky Dunky! However, not to play favorites, but the sneaker x music industry collaborations are the best!
Why? Well, mainly because the music industry is, without a doubt, one of the HUGEST industries out there. So, this means collaboration with the sneaker industry is a merger of TITANS. However, the reason we LOVE this particular collab is that we get to play the sneakerhead’s advantage.
The Sneakerhead’s Advantage
So, if you didn’t know, almost any type of sneaker collaboration produces SUPER hyped, and in-demand sneakers. Loosely translated, this means outrageously high resale.
One part of the sneaker x music industry collaboration is, of course, the artist and his fans! People who probably have no previous experience copping sneakers. And, not to say you should take advantage of them… But, you totally SHOULD! Because let’s face it, odds are they aren’t running a sneaker bot.
Therefore, this means YOU, as a seasoned sneakerhead, will come and swoop in to buy the entire stock! You’ll cop sneakers in bulk, and charge that music industry fans crazy resale! And, we guarantee they WILL buy! Music to our ears! PS: if you are a music fan, we do apologize. But, we also suggest you try to use this new knowledge to YOUR advantage.

Give sneakerheads a run for their money!
SNEAKER X MUSIC INDUSTRY COLLABORATIONS
ADIDAS X KANYE WEST
So, the first sneaker x music industry collaboration we’re going to start with is a legendary and historic one: Adidas x Kanye West. Now, we know that this was also the most dramatic and toxic collaboration in the game. But, we can NOT deny that Adidas and Ye did create epic work together! After he left his initial music collaboration with Nike, of course. Lots of tea there!
If you have no idea what we’re talking about, click here to learn more about the Adidas x Yeezy split.
ADIDAS X BEYONCE
And, there’s also the sneaker x music industry collaboration with BEYONCE!
Queen B’s collaboration with the Three Stripes in 2019 was nothing short of pure AWESOMENESS. The IVY PARK collection features footwear and athleisure apparel in beautiful designs. We think that Adidas hoped, with a move like this, to replicate what they had with Ye. But, that was not really the case.
But, they did recently drop their sixth collaborative release in July 2022 called IVYTOPIA! So, maybe with Ye out of the picture, there‘s hope?
NIKE X TRAVIS SCOTT
But, one of the true sneaker x music collaborations that did come close to the Adidas x Yeezy hype is: Nike x Travis Scott! Travis proved to be one formidable opponent – although causing a bit of drama with the Kardashian-Jenner klan. But, nothing they aren’t already used to! Travis Scott sneakers are one of the most expensive and hyped kicks in the game.
But, if you’re into some La Flame heat with Cactus Jack, THAT’S something you need botting for. Because, believe it or not, for a while they’ve been even hotter than YEEZY!
AIR JORDAN X J BALVIN
However, most recently a new sneaker x music industry collaboration caught our attention – the J Balvin x Air Jordan collab. His Air Jordan 1 is definitely one of the most eye-catching colorways out there with its LED lights. Definitely, one of those collaborations that you just KNOW is going to be awesome – especially after a teaser in the 2020 Super Bowl!
AIR JORDAN X DJ KHALED
And, finally the last sneaker x music industry collaboration we’re going to talk about on this list is: Air Jordan x DJ Khaled. DJ Khaled’s latest WE THE BEST collection just goes to show how much of a sneakerhead he really is! It is definitely one of the coolest collabs to come from an artist. The collection featured 4 different pastel colorways that you can rock all year long. And we definitely look forward to more work from the pair!
Of course, the sneaker x music industry collaborations don’t end here. The list goes on and on! However, we’re going to add a few more honorable mentions we can NOT go without!
- Rihanna x PUMA
- Selena Gomez x PUMA
- Cardi B x Reebok
- Drake x Nike
- Pharrell Williams x Adidas
- Eminem x Air Jordan
