Kylie Jenner Is the Newest Adidas Ambassador (And She's Rocking Their 90s-Inspired Shoe)
She stars in the brand's campaign for its new Falcon sneakers.
Back in 2016-in a tweet that went down in history as a classic Kanye rant-the rapper said that Kylie Jenner and Puma would never team up, given his partnership with Adidas. "1000% there will never be a Kylie Puma anything," he wrote in the since-deleted post. "That's on my family! 1000% Kylie is on Yeezy team!!!" To no one's surprise (except, maybe Kanye's), Jenner went on to slay as the fierce face of Puma.
Two years later, Kanye can finally rest easy: Jenner just revealed on an Instagram story that she's now an ambassador for Adidas.
Jenner stars in an Adidas Originals campaign for its upcoming Falcon collection. The Falcon sneaker is a chunky, '90s-inspired dad shoe that comes in black, white, or six retro colorblock options. The line also includes bodysuits, a bomber jacket, and snap-front pants that can live up to the pair you owned as a high school athlete. The collection drops on September 6 at 3 a.m. ET, but you can preview everything now. (In the meantime, check out these 11 chunky dad sneakers that will actually look cute on you.)
Kylie has finally joined Kanye and Kendall on the Adidas side, but Twitter has been quick to point out that Kylie's bf Travis Scott is a Nike ambassador; he's collaborated with the brand for multiple versions of the Air Force 1 and has dissed Adidas in songs.

Hopefully, this time there are no hard feelings. Given the ongoing athleisure craze, there's surely enough love (and sneakers) to go around.
