Sneaker Watch // Hot 97 Summer Jam XX

words // Brandon Richard

Last night, New York City radio station Hot 97 celebrated the 20th installment of Summer Jam, an all-day music festival featuring performances from some of the biggest names in hip-hop and R&B. The bill was highlighted by acts like Chris Brown, A$AP Rocky, Wu-Tang Clan, Fabolous, 2 Chainz, Wale and Kendrick Lamar. Unannounced guests included Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Rakim, Lil' Wayne, Mariah Carey and the legendary Papoose.

Of course, when there's a gathering this big in hip-hop, everybody is looking to break out their freshest pair of kicks. Summer Jam XX didn't disappoint in that regard, with everything from high fashion models to classic retros hitting the stage. Wale turned heads with a snakeskin version of a Jordan classic by JFB Customs; the A$AP crew is working hard to resurrect the Air Force 1 Mid; J. Cole debuted an upcoming Torsion Attitude colorway from adidas Originals; and Lil' Wayne is finally back in the Chimera from his Supra Spectre line.
