Everyone knows him as Bad Bunny, but the reggaeton superstar is featuring his birth name on his newest sneaker collaboration with Adidas.

Born Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio, the rapper’s next shoe has been unveiled to be the “Benito,” his version of Adidas’ Forum Powerphase shoe that originally debuted in 1984. Bunny’s real name, “Benito,” is printed in small, black letters above Adidas’ recognizable three stripes logo on the side of the shoe. The “Benito” features different shades of brown alongside black and other shades of pink, blue, and orange.

If you’ve lost count of the number of Adidas sneakers Bunny has out in the market, there’s quite a few. Before the “Benito,” Bunny announced the release of his version of the brand’s Response CL, which was referred to by many as a “dad’s shoe.”

His first collaboration with Adidas happened last March when he released “The First Café,” which sold out in minutes. He also released a pair of “Easter Egg” shoes made of pink leather and suede, a pair of ZX 8000 “Ice Cream” shoes, which featured the “melting” design and a special edition of the “Forum Sneaker” called “Bad Bunny Forum-Back to School Shoes.” Then, there’s also his Forum Buckle Low sneakers and Core Black sneakers.

A drop date on the “Benito” hasn’t been announced yet, but it’s possible it’ll be timed for the start of his 29-city U.S.-Latin American tour this year, which starts August 5 in Orlando and ends December 9 in Mexico City. Imagine rolling into the arena with those babies on your feet.
