Sole Collector Celebrity Sneaker Watch // 7.26.13
words // Brandon Richard
With another week in the books, it's time to recap the latest and greatest in celebrity footwear for the last time in July.
Back from their tour of China, Jordan Brand athletes Carmelo Anthony and Chris Paul were in attendance for the Team USA Basketball Showcase in Las Vegas on Thursday. While CP3 impressed in the upcoming "Green Glow" Air Jordan 4 Retro, it was Melo who really turned heads by lacing up his personal colorway of the Air Jordan 5 Retro. The orange-based shoe appears to be heading to retail at some point this year, so be sure to keep an eye out for release information here at Sole Collector.
The sneaker of the week was pretty much a tie between the Air Jordan 3 and Air Jordan 4. Ludacris and Drake rocked the recently released Doernbecher 3s, while Trinidad James and Big Boi joined CP3 in the "Green Glow" 4s. It doesn't appear that there's an end in sight for the momentum of either of these models.
Wale in "Volt" Maxes, Rita rocks GS 12s, Fabolous cools down in Tech Challenge Hybrids and much more in this week's Sole Collector Celebrity Sneaker Watch.
Making it a 'Watch The Throne' affair, Jay-Z unseated Kanye West as your 7.19 Sneaker Celebrity of the Week. Who takes the crown this week? Be sure to cast a vote below.
