Celebrity Sole Watch // 1.3.14

Celebrity Sole Watch // 1.3.14

words // Brandon Richard

A new year means a fresh start for Celebrity Sole Watch.

It was a surprisingly slow week for celebrity sneaker spotting, but Macklemore had Twitter buzzing on New Year's Eve when he tossed a pair of 'Red October' Nike Air Yeezy 2s into the crowd during a performance. Despite the annoyance of the entire situation, we're all still curious about what will happen to the third colorway of Kanye's final Nike shoe. A few pairs have made rounds, but it's impossible to 100% vouch for their authenticity. We do know they were supposed to drop last year, but Kanye's move to adidas may have changed everything. The Air Yeezy 2 saga lives to see another year.

The Air Jordan 5 knocked off the 1 and 12 for Celebrity Sneaker of the Week honors. Highlights include Wilson Chandler in red-based 'Toro' colorway and Tahiry Jose in a fresh pair of 'Grapes.'

The Fresh Prince in limited Jordans, Swizzy breaks out the Kamikaze 1 retro, LeBron loves Balenciaga and much more in this week's Celebrity Sole Watch.

As he did for most of 2013, Wale closed out the year with your vote for 12.28 Sole Celebrity of the Week. That only strengthens his case for the upcoming Top 10 Celebs list. Who do you think started off the new year with a bang? Cast your vote below.
