Sole Collector Celebrity Sneaker Watch // 6.14.13

words // Brandon Richard

While enjoying your time off this weekend, join us in a look back at the last week in celebrity footwear.

The big story in celebrity sneakers this week was Retro Jordans, particularly today's "Black Grape" Retro 5 release and last week's Air Jordan 11 Retro Low. Everybody from Fabolous to Wale to Bow Wow was spotted wearing one or the other – or in some cases both. Between the two popular releases, which one do you think looks better on-foot?

We also spotted a few celebrity endorsers representing their brands this week. Swizz Beatz rocked "The Shoe About Nothing" Reebok Question collaboration from Sneakersnstuff, while Wiz Khalifa performed at the Songwriters Hall of Fame in the Converse Chuck Taylor. Fresh of inking a deal with Bellator, Quinton "Rampage" Jackson attended the Guys Choice Awards in a new colorway of the Reebok ATV19+ and rapper B.o.B. laced up the Tech Street Mid by adidas Originals. All just one offensive lyric or quote away from wearing something completely different though (see: Rick Ross).

Yeezy in Visvim, Bieber in Givenchy, Trinidad's Totems and more in this week's Sole Collector Celebrity Sneaker Watch.

Last week, LeBron James' Foams and Yeezy 2s helped him earn your vote for the 6.7 Sneaker Celebrity of the Week. Can he do what he's trying to do on the court and make it a repeat? Cast your vote below.
