The weekend is almost here and that means we're back with the latest celebrity sneaker recap.

Ahead of this weekend's bout against Chael Sonnen, UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon "Bones" Jones made the promotional rounds wearing his personal Nike JBJ Free 5.0 TR. The shoe launched last Friday on nike.com and sold out instantly.

Also working to promote a fight this past week was pound-for-pound boxing king Floyd Mayweather Jr., who will be returning to the ring against Robert Guerrero next Saturday. The self-proclaimed "cash cow" showed up for Monday's official Mayweather Media Day wearing the Engineered Mesh version of the Nike Air Max 95. After a lengthy layoff, does Floyd still have what it takes to maintain his undefeated record?

Today, news broke that Kanye West will be performing on the season finale of Saturday Night Live. Any kind of Kanye news usually generates excitement within the sneaker community, but the possibility of finally hearing some new music has everybody waiting on edge. Earlier this week, Kanye was spotted out with girlfriend Kim Kardashian rocking the Visvim FBT Shaman. He also rocked an all-white pair of Vans Authentics on Tuesday. It'll be pretty interesting to see if Kanye's recent footwear selections (as opposed to his usual Nikes and Jordans) will influence sneakerheads with Swoosh tunnel vision to give other brands a shot.

The week's most popular selections came from the Jordan Brand. People like Victor Cruz, Bow Wow and Terrence J broke out the upcoming "Grape" Retro 5, while Rick Ross, Ashanti and Cleveland Browns receiver Josh Gordon laced up last weekend's "Bugs" Retro 8.

Big Sean in a BAPE x UNDFTD x adidas collaboration, Wahlberg in CP3s, Revis lands in Tampa wearing "Fire Reds" and much more featured in this week's Sole Collector Celebrity Sneaker Watch.

Last week, Wale shut it down with Rayguns, Aquas, Lightnings and XVIs, earning your vote for the 4.19 Sneaker Celebrity of the Week. Who's worthy of top honors this week? Cast your vote below.
