Celebrity Sole Watch // 12.20.13

words // Brandon Richard

Head into the weekend by joining us in a look back at what kicks celebrities have been lacing up this past week.

Despite the fact that he wasn't really spotted wearing anything this week, Kanye West is still stealing all of the sneaker headlines. Yesterday, he announced that we can expect to see his adidas Collection hit retail next September. Then today, Foot Locker dropped an official release date for the highly anticipated 'Red October' Nike Air Yeezy 2 — December 27. No matter how you feel about this guy, there's no doubt that he has an extremely powerful presence in sneakers that only seems to increase with time.

The Air Jordan 4 barely edged out the Air Jordan 5 as the Celebrity Shoe of the Week. Wale, DJ Khaled and Bow Wow all brought back the 'Toro' retro, while Nelly went with 'Cements' and Drake laced up the 'Military Blue' colorway for one of his concert stops.

Hulk Hogan geared up for the playoffs, Cruz rocks 'Aquas' courtside, DJ Skee is in a festive mood and much more in this week's Celebrity Sole Watch.

Last week, pop star Austin Mahone earned your vote for Sole Celebrity of the Week with an impressive lineup of Jordan and Nike retros. He scaled things back a bit this week, so let us know if he did enough to repeat by casting a vote for your top celeb below.
