Sole Collector Celebrity Sneaker Watch // 11.16.12
words // Brandon Richard
With a big weekend of releases ahead of us, let's check out some of the kicks worn by celebrities this past week.
All was surprisingly quiet on the "Galaxy" Rookie front for celebs, but the same can't be said for the "Olive" Air Jordan Retro 9. People like Wale, Bow Wow and Joe Budden broke out the classic kicks set to return to retail for the first time in ten years tomorrow. After a week in which he broke news of 2013 Shaq retros, Swizz Beatz rehearsed his American Music Awards performance in Emmitt Smith's ES22. Also representing for their respective brands were David Beckham (adidas Originals) and Meek Mill (PUMA).
Terrence J changed the name, but his kicks remain the same over at E!; Sean Kingston had the Memphis Blues; Bun B showed us his Supremes; and Kanye kicked back in Flyknits. Be on the lookout for all of these kicks and more in this week's Sole Collector Celebrity Sneaker Watch.
It was business as usual for Wale last week, who repeated as your top sneaker celebrity. Was his showing good enough this week to make it three in a row? Cast your vote below.
