Jay-Z in Adidas

Sorry for the utterly craptastic quality of the image. It's a closeup of Jay's shoes, which I pulled from Beyonce's "Upgrade U" video. Since Adidas owns Reebok, which makes the S.Carter shoe, there's no big conflict of interest, but it makes me wonder what the heck is up with Sean's shoe. One of these days I'm gonna have to remember to ask a buyer if it's even being made anymore.

^^You may not be able to make out the shoe, but it's hard not to miss the Adidas Trefoil on the tongue of the shoe.

him and 50 can wear any shoe they want but its obviously in their best interests to promote their shoes since they get 50% of the profits

Can he? Have you seen him wear Nike shoes in any videos from the past two years? That's interesting about the percentage of the profits--did Reebok announce that somewhere?
