Hip-hop artist Big Sean was in Boston this week, but not just to hype his new CD, “Hall of Fame.” No, the rapper also has some sweet new kicks — the Big Sean X Adidas Originals Pro Model II — which were rolled out Wednesday at a block party at Concepts in Harvard Square. (The sneakers, made with Italian leather, snakeskin, and gunmetal hardware, retail for $160.) But fans expecting Big Sean to show up, as advertised, at 5:30 p.m., were in for a big surprise. The rapper strolled into the store more than two hours late and didn’t stay very long.
