Sole Collector Celebrity Sneaker Watch // 7.5.13

words // Brandon Richard

From Jay-Z to Wale, it's once again time to take a look back at the last week in celebrity sneaker sightings.

On Thursday, Jay-Z released his twelfth album Magna Carta...Holy Grail exclusively on Samsung Galaxy mobile devices. To celebrate the drop, Jay and several of his industry friends gathered for the official release party at Pier 41 in Brooklyn. As he has in weeks past, Jay laced up the clean, all-white Converse Pro Leather collaboration with Ace Hotel. With Converse, we see celebrities lacing up Chucks every week, but it's nice to see some of the brand's other iconic silhouettes getting love as well.

The week's big sneaker event was the 2013 BET Awards, held last Sunday at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles. Stealing all headlines was Chris Brown, who opened up the show alongside a group of dancers all laced up in the upcoming Reebok Shaqnosis. You can check out the full 2013 BET Awards Sneaker Watch feature here.

It's no surprise that the sneaker of the week is the upcoming "Toro" Air Jordan 4 Retro release. People like J. Cole, Dwyane Wade and Fat Joe rocked their pairs this week and you can expect to see plenty more throughout the summer.

Wale in "Weathermans," Nelly laces up the Air Revolution, Mike Epps hoops in Kobe IVs and much more in this week's Sole Collector Celebrity Sneaker Watch.

Last week, Wale's customs by JBF and Elite LeBrons helped him earn your vote for 6.28 Sneaker Celebrity of the Week. He makes a strong case again this week, so cast your vote below and let us know if he did enough to repeat as champ.
