UPDATE: Nipsey Hussle Takes to twitter to call this Reebok Classic Nylon “unauthorized” while reiterating his affiliation with Puma and that he’ll take legal action. While the shoes do not actually use Nipsey’s name on the shoe, there are heavy references to Nipsey using “Crenshaw” and “Slauson” as well as “Rich Rolling” which can be speculated to be connected. Nipsey Hussle was also featured recently on an advertisement by Jordan Brand and Foot Locker for the Gatorade line. In all, footwear retailers have also labeled the shoe with his name on their release calendars
