Sole Collector Celebrity Sneaker Watch // 5.10.13
words // Brandon Richard
Another week concludes with a recap of the latest celebrity sneaker sightings.
106 & Park co-host Bow Wow continues to get an early jump on Reebok Classics releases, debuting the returning Answer I on Wednesday's episode. Allen Iverson's second signature shoe is set to make its way back to retail two weeks from today.
Speaking of Reebok, former pitchman Rick Ross is still showing us that he had some heat stashed away while handling his Vector business. The rapper attended Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals series between the Chicago Bulls and the Miami Heat wearing the original Nike Air Yeezy.
The most popular shoe amongst celebs still appears to be the "Bugs" Air Jordan Retro 8. Jigga, Soulja Boy and Nick Cannon were all spotted wearing the '93 classic this week. Other hot selections include "Fire Red" Retro 5s, white-on-white Forces and Chucks.
Cris Carter in Elite KDs, Wale in Laneys, Budden in custom 11s, DJ Khaled topless and much more in this week's Sole Collector Celebrity Sneaker Watch.
Last week, Wale's "True Blues" and "Bugs" 8s were enough to get your vote for the 5.3 Sneaker Celebrity of the Week. He brought out more heat this week, but is it enough for a repeat? Cast your vote below.

Bow Wow - Reebok Answer I
1.) One of the few times that Jay-Z's fit didn't look right. Those kicks and that "old man" sweater were not vibing right. Hov usually gets an A+ from me, but he failed the mission on that one.
2.) The "Fat dude wearing no shirt ala Rick Ross" trend needs to get deaded, IMMEDIATELY. Shit is obscene.
3.) Sole Swaps on Jordan 11s look cheap and fake.
4.) Star tattoos on dudes = Big Ass NO NO.
5.) Looks like his kick game is rubbing off on Olivia Wilde. Nothing better than a cute chick in fresh kicks.
6.) Is Flavor Flav a janitor in the evening? What the fuck's up with all the keys?
7.) It's great to see Mario Lopez wearing something besides those god-awful AJ Fusion 3s.
