Drake is releasing a shoe in honor of John Calipari

KSR-1621

How much does Drake love John Calipari? Apparently so much he’s releasing a shoe in his honor. This morning, Drake posted pictures on his Instagram account of the OVO Jordan 8 “Calipari Pack,” a series of sneakers in Kentucky blue and white with Drake’s OVO branding on the heel tab:

No word yet if these will be available to the public or if they’ll just be for Calipari to wear on recruiting visits. I can’t wait to see how they look with his dad jeans.
