We wrap up another week with a look back at the kicks celebrities have been lacing up.

As usual, Kanye West made a plethora of sneaker headlines this week — only this time, it was because of what he wasn't wearing. The 'Red October' Nike Air Yeezy 2 has been absent from the Yeezus Tour recently and rumors have 'Ye taking his sneaker business elsewhere. Where exactly he'll wind up is unknown at the moment, but any kind of move away from Nike would certainly impact the industry and celebrity sneaker spotting. More on that story as it develops.

The Air Jordan 1 was once again the Celebrity Sneaker of the Week. Several variations of the iconic model were laced up, none turning more heads than Q-Tip's Black/Gold Patents from '03.

Wiz in mismatched Aerojams, Swizz and Jada rep 'Brick City,' Austin Mahone takes us back to South Beach, Mayweather's red bottom boots and much more in this week's Celebrity Sole Watch.

In a vote that surprised no one, you all named Michael Jordan the 11.15 Sole Celebrity of the Week after he played beer pong in the 'Concord' Air Jordan 11 Low. His Airness is missing in action this week, so vote for an all-new top celeb below.
