The South by Southwest Festival currently being staged in Austin Texas serves as a great foundation for another great week of celebrity sneaker sightings. Artists like Lil' Wayne, T.I. and Theophilus London have all taken the stage in hot pairs from Nike and the Jordan Brand. Rick Ross celebrated his new Reebok deal by wearing some of the brand's classic models, while Meek Mill and Stalley are attempting to challenge Wale for MMG sneaker supremacy. New faces include people like Cuba Gooding Jr., Jesse Metcalfe, Johnny Knoxville and Flavor Flav, who opened his new chicken spot in a recent release from adidas Originals. Fabolous also showed some love to the 3-Stripes and Smoke DZA showed off his entire Foamposite collection.
