Sole Collector Celebrity Sneaker Watch // 8.30.13
words // Brandon Richard
It's once again that time of the week to recap the latest sightings in celebrity footwear.
This week's "big" sneaker event was the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, held at Brooklyn's Barclays Center on Sunday. The show mostly underwhelmed in terms of sneaker spotting, but a few noteworthy pairs were rocked and you can see them all in our full recap here.
The Sneaker of the Week was once again the Air Jordan 3, worn by celebs like Trinidad James, Victor Cruz, Kyrie Irving, Jason Sudeikis, Sean Kingston and Tristan Wilds. It's also worth noting that we didn't see much "Fear Pack" activity this week and several readers have told us that the 3 was the hardest of the trio to find.
Wale's Viotechs, Jeremy Lin reps Nike overseas, Chumlee in "Quais" and much more in this week's Sole Collector Celebrity Sneaker Watch.
After debuting the 2013 "Laney" Air Jordan 5 Retro and lacing up " Black Laser" 4s from 2005, Trinidad reclaimed Sneaker Celebrity of the Week honors for 8.23. Can he repeat the feat with another strong lineup or will another celeb take the crown? Cast your vote below.
