Sole Collector Celebrity Sneaker Watch // 4.19.13
words // Brandon Richard
We're finishing another week out with a look back at the latest sightings in celebrity footwear.
After winning the scoring title and ahead of the Knicks' playoff opener tomorrow, Carmelo Anthony was spotted at teammate Amar'e Stoudemire's premiere event for the documentary In The Moment yesterday wearing the "Concord" Air Jordan 11. Almost 18 years after the all-time classic was released, MJ's prediction of the model becoming a formal favorite is still holding true. He told you so, Tinker.
Continuing his post-Reebok life, Rick Ross broke out a few more non-Vector pairs this week, including the popular "Cork" Nike LeBron X. According to an unconfirmed report from TMZ, Ross' reps are saying he's losing between 3.5 and 5 million dollars with the termination of his Reebok deal. Sounds a bit on the high side, but if that's anywhere near the actual figure, you have to think a ton of rappers are ready to fill the void left behind by the bawse.
The Shaq Attaq is officially back today and we're starting to see more celebrities lacing up the Reebok classic. French Montana and actor Michael K. Williams got in on the fun this week and we'll surely see more pairs being rocked in the weeks ahead.
Standing out as the week's most popular celebrity sneaker option was the "Celtics" Air Jordan Retro 1 High OG. Stalley, Fabolous and new WNBAer Skylar Diggins each laced up the recent release. The Balenciaga Arena had its usual strong showing as well.
