Adidas also says you can switch out the laces to play up the colour – with three to choose from.
He previously teamed up with Adidas and Cheetos for a clothing collection in aid of a good cause.
The unique apparel range included a cheetah-patterned tracksuit and two football jerseys embellished with the logos of the singer, Adidas and Cheetos.
Alongside the collection, he launched the Deja ty Huella Estudiante Fund, which will give a total of $500,000 to students in the US and Bad Bunny’s native of Puerto Rico.
It saw ten students receive a $50,000 scholarship to use towards their education.

Fans of Bad Bunny have also noticed that he’s a big Lady Gaga fan, with the artist recently attending her Chromatica Ball show in Boston.
One fan tweeted: “Bad Bunny is a hardcore chromatica stan”, posting pictures of the singer repping Chromatica merch, including a t-shirt and wellies.
In an interview with E! in 2020 he said that he turns to Lady Gaga’s music when he feels at his lowest.
Talking about Chromatica he says: “That album makes me feel like more happy and when she dropped that album I was in a really good moment enjoying my life, so I love that album.”
Bad Bunny is a staunch LGBT+ ally
The rapper has proven himself to be an ally to LGBT+ since his breakthrough onto the music scene.
In 2020 he paid a touching tribute to a trans woman who was brutally killed in Puerto Rico, where Bad Bunny is also from.
He wore a t-shirt that read “they killed Alexa, not a man with a skirt” in Spanish, during a performance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
He also got a full drag makeover in the music video for his song “Yo Perreo Sola”, with him telling Rolling Stone: “I have always felt like there [was] a part of me that is very feminine.”
“But I never felt as masculine as I did the day I dressed up like a drag queen,” he added.
And despite some backlash he explained: “I did it to show support to those who need it. I may not be gay, but I’m a human who cares.”
