Celebrity Sole Watch // 5.24.14

Celebrity Sole Watch // 5.24.14

words // Brandon Richard

Another weekend, another recap of the latest sightings in the world of celebrity footwear.

This week's celebrity sneaker news was highlighted by two new additions to the adidas family. On Tuesday, singer Rita Ora officially announced her upcoming collection in an interview with Women's Wear Daily. Then, ahead of his wedding, Kanye West was spotted in Paris rocking a few pairs of adi sneakers, including the 'Blackout' Black Elements Pack ZX Flux. How things work out for adidas' new signings long-term remains to be seen, but there's no denying the immediate impact they've made.

Air Jordans 6 and 11 were neck and neck for Celebrity Sneaker of the Week. Jim Jones, Big Tigger and DJ Envy were among those who broke out the new 'Carmine' 6 Retro, while 'Concord' 11 Lows continue to the single most popular colorway. Are these two models officially the shoes of the summer?

A.I. heard the Knicks may soon have a scoring void, Wale breaks out cigars, The Game is Team Flux and much more in this week's Celebrity Sole Watch.

With a lineup that included the rarely seen (in celebrity circles, of course) Air Jordan XX1, Nate Robinson won your vote for 5.17 Sole Celebrity of the Week. Did this week's selection earn Nate a repeat nod or are you leaning in another direction? Cast your vote below.
