Sole Collector Celebrity Sneaker Watch // 8.23.13
words // Brandon Richard
Jumpstart another weekend by joining us in a look back at the last week in celebrity footwear.
MAGIC Tradeshow invaded Vegas this week, Reebok Classics kicking things off with a Spring 2014 preview on Monday. We brought you an early look at all of those kicks, but it was Swizz Beatz who really turned heads when he debuted the "Phoenix Suns" Shaq Attaq on the red carpet. With Shaqs originally being available in limited colorways, do you think retro styles have the potential to succeed in today's market?
Also making headlines this week was LeBron James, who wore the LeBron XI for the first time publicly in a new Nike commercial shoot. Launch is set for October, so we should be seeing that energy pick up in the week's ahead.
The Air Jordan 3 was unseated as Shoe of the Week...by the Air Jordan 4. Various colorways popped up all over the place this past week, most notably Trinidad James lacing up the "Black Lasers."
B.o.B. and Gil get fresh, Fresh is cemented, Kanye cracks the Vans Vault and much more in this week's Sole Collector Celebrity Sneaker Watch.
Wale's "Safari" Foamposite debut and "Parachute Gold" LeBron XIs helped him earn your vote for the 8.16 Sneaker Celebrity of the Week. Can he repeat with another debut or do you think another celeb stands out among the rest? Cast your vote below.
