Sole Collector Celebrity Sneaker Watch // 4.12.13
words // Brandon Richard
With the weekend on the horizon, we're back with our recap of the last week in celebrity footwear.
As news broke that Reebok was dropping Rick Ross as an endorser, the rapper was spottted at BOA Steakhouse in West Hollywood wearing the new Jordan Son of Mars Low in Tour Yellow/Grape. This isn't a completely new direction for Ross, who regularly rocked Jordans throughout the life of his deal with Reebok. Cash and public scrutiny aside, neither party is proably losing much sleep over the divorce.
Also adjusting to life after Reebok is Washington Wizards point guard John Wall, who made a couple of public appearances in adidas Originals this week. Wall was seen laced up in the "Rainbow" Jeremy Scott Wings outside of his New York City hotel on Monday, then threw out the opening pitch in Superstars at the Nationals game yesterday. Wall is playing the best basketball of his career and seemingly enjoying his time as a 3-Stripe athlete.
It was no runaway for the most popular sneaker selection of the week, but it looks like the white Foamposites will run strong throughout the summer. Other kicks to keep an eye out for include the "Philly" Barkley Posite Max and Black Patent/Gold Air Jordan Retro 1.
Chad in Jaspers, Rebel in Pink Poodles, Kobe in 1s and much more in this week's Sole Collector Celebrity Sneaker Watch.
With a lineup that included the Golden Moments Pack, "Area 72" Barkley Posites and two colorways of the Air Jordan Retro 11, Soulja Boy took home the vote for 4.5.13 Sneaker Celebrity of the Week. He's featured again in this week's post, but did he do enough to repeat? Cast your vote below.
