A friend of Coach Calipari’s powerhouse program at Kentucky, Drake is paying homage to his favorite college basketball basketball team with a special pair of Air Jordans.

These are no airball — dubbed “Kentucky Blue” by Drizzy himself, this Air Jordan 8 is white-based with royal blue accents and a speckled midsole. No official team or OVO logos are visible in this particular photo.

Kentucky is one of Nike’s biggest programs, so maybe Coach Cal’s kids will have an opportunity to hit the court in these sometime soon. For now, they’re exclusive to Drake and his camp.
