Rapper Macklemore is the latest hip-hop star to collaborate with Nike’s Air Jordan brand.

The “Thrift Shop” star has designed a pair of salmon pink sneakers with the iconic company, created by and named after basketball legend Michael Jordan.

Unveiling the shoes on his Instagram.com page, he writes, “I’m proud to announce the unveiling of my Northwest King Salmon Melo’s. Courtesy of (Air Jordan) and myself. Never dreamed I’d have an opportunity like this.”

He follows in the footsteps of Drake, who teamed up with the brand to design his own range of sneakers last year.
