Celebrity Sole Watch // 2.9.14
words // Brandon Richard
As we prepare to kick off a new week, let's take a look back at some of the best recent celebrity sneaker sightings.
It's been another big week for celebrity footwear, as rapper 2 Chainz became the latest big name to link up with a sneaker company for his own shoe. The '2 Good 2 Be TRU' adidas Top Ten made its debut on Thursday and will release in limited quantities on February 15. With so many new partnerships, is adidas poised to challenge Nike for streetwear supremacy soon?
The Celebrity Sneaker of the Week was the Air Jordan 3, worn by lovely ladies like Teyana Taylor and Angela Simmons, rapper Nelly and Supercool Beas himself. A big factor for the Air Jordan 3 staying in the public eye is the newly released 'Powder' colorway — is this the best non-original version of the iconic sneaker?
Kiss gets an early start on next season's go-to outfit, Trinidad rocks Melody Ehsani's latest collab, LeBron shows off his lifestyle and much more in today's Celebrity Sole Watch.
