Sneaker Watch // 2013 MTV Video Music Awards

words // Brandon Richard

We're now two days removed from the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, a night that will sadly be mostly remembered for Miley Cyrus' attempt at twerking. Aside from that debacle, there were a few quality moments, such as Justin Timberlake running through his catalog of hits for 15 minutes (including a brief NSYNC reunion) before accepting the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. Other highlights included Kanye West's 'dark' performance of "Blood On The Leaves" and Bruno Mars belting out his new single "Gorilla" in the midst of a full on laser show. Timberlake capped off the night by picking up 'Best Video' for "Mirrors."

The VMAs weren't exactly a hotbed for celebrity sneaker sighting, but a few gems did hit the red carpet and stage. Singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran laced up the "Fresh Prince" Air Jordan 5 Retro, while Wiz Khalifa decided to rock a red pair of Chucks from his Converse collection. Kendrick Lamar stuck to his word and continued to wear the Nike Cortez. Kanye left his Yeezys at home and kept it comfortable in Visvim. Drake performed in the "Black Bottom" 9 Retro and mostly everything else was high fashion.
