It's once again time for our detailed look back at the last week of celebrity sneaker sightings.
Nothing can start this week's spotlight off other than Kanye West spazzing out on a photographer at LAX yesterday afternoon. West, who has shaky history with the paparazzi, got physical with Daniel Ramos while rocking the Nike Air Max 1 Hyperfuse "USA Pack" in navy blue. This type of post is proof that even we sometimes benefit from the work of the paparazzi, but do they sometimes cross the line?
Next, we have to give it up to Fabolous, who became the first celeb to lace up the highly anticipated "Remember The Alamo "Packer Shoes x Reebok Kamikaze II. And if you're going to debut a sneaker, it doesn't really get much better than doing so on a boat, surrounded by scantily clad women. That pack drops August 2 exclusively at Packer Shoes. Beautiful women in thongs not included.
The sneaker of the week was the Air Jordan 4, with the new "Toro" and "Green Glow" colorways dominating the scene. Names wearing the iconic model this week included C.C. Sabathia, DJ Khaled, Nate Robinson and even a one-legged Big Boi.
Drake breaks out the XVII, Kristen Wiig does MJ in Js, Stalley serves up a "LeBronold Palmer" and much more in this week's loaded Sole Collector Celebrity Sneaker Watch.
