We close the first week of December with a loaded recap of the latest in celebrity footwear.
A mainstay in our recaps, Rihanna was one of the top eye-catchers last week with her adidas Originals Jeremy Scott Instinct Hi sneakers and matching sweatshirt. Atlanta rapper Trinidad James is on the rise, and he was spotted just about everywhere in Jordan retros. Celebrating his 33rd birthday and the upcoming release of his fifth album Jesus Piece, The Game was heavy on the promotion trail, including a stop by Mastro's Steakhouse in the "Galaxy" Nike Zoom Rookie. Nate Robinson had his usual strong week, including an all-time great sneaker photo in front of the original Home Alone house.
Diddy is poised to bring back velour suits; Karrueche was picture perfect in Photo Blues; Tahiry brought back the "Black Olive" custom from '02; Jack Black kicked it in Clydes; and everybody is still wearing the Black/Cement 4. These kicks and many more in today's Sole Collector Celebrity Sneaker Watch.
The lovely and very very very talented Lisa Ann was your overwhelming favorite for the 11.30.12 Sneaker Celebrity of the Week. Unfortunately she didn't share a sneaker photo this week, so you'll have to choose someone else to take her spot. Bummer. Who will that lucky individual be? Cast your vote below.
