Sole Collector Celebrity Sneaker Watch // 5.31.13
words // Brandon Richard
With another week behind us, we're back with the latest celebrity sneaker recap.
Ahead of the June 18 release of his sophomore album Born Sinner, J. Cole returned to the stage in a strong lineup of Retro Jordans. Along with the "Bugs" and "Suns" colorways of the 8, he broke out the popular "Toro" 5 Retro at Vegas' OAK Nightclub. With new material on its way to stores, we expect to see a lot of Cole in Sneaker Watch this summer.
Also prepping for a June 18 album drop is Kanye West, who has the sneaker community buzzing with the pending release of the "All-Red" Nike Air Yeezy 2. While we wait, 'Ye threw a curveball and brought back the Black/Solar Red colorway. His May Saturday Night Live appearance didn't provide us with the best look — when will we see Mr. West break out the red colorway in public?
With the weather warming up, sneakerheads are breaking out fresh pairs of two of the most classic summer silhouettes. Victor Cruz and A$AP Rocky laced up low and mid-cut versions of the white-on-white Air Force 1, while Jamie Foxx and Snoop Dogg kept it original in the adidas Superstar. Other popular selections included the "Toro" Air Jordan 5 Retro, 11 Retro and Barkley Posite Max.
Big Sean's Bape Stas, D-Wade in Ferragamo, Tip reps "Miami Dade" and much more in this week's Sole Collector Celebrity Sneaker Watch.
