Sole Collector Celebrity Sneaker Watch // 9.13.13
words // Brandon Richard
Heading into the weekend, it's once again time to recap what kicks have recently been laced up by the biggest names in sports and entertainment.
This week's big event for sneaker spotting was New York Fashion Week, with celebs, musicians and athletes all outfitted in their best gear. Kanye West kept it relatively simple in Timberland and Visvim, while A$AP Rocky, Iman Shumpert, John Wall and Jeremy Scott all put on for adidas. Much of adi's international growth has been attributed to their partnerships with various designers in the fashion industry. Do events like Fashion Week show us that they've made the right move by linking the brand to high fashion?
Taking a break from the usual dominance of the 3 and 4, Air Jordans 1 and 5 were the Shoes of the Week this time around. Dave Chappelle, "Lord" Scott Disick, Jim Jones, Ashanti and Jason Sudeikis all laced up variations of the Jordan 1, while Russell Westbrook, B.o.B., Trinidad James, Stalley and Bow Wow were all spotted in the 5.
Melo rocks "Legend" 2s, Shump brings back the KB8 II, LeBron tours Jerry World in "Cool Grey" VIIs, Rihanna saddles up in a Mastermind x adidas Originals collaboration and much more in this week's Sole Collector Celebrity Sneaker Watch.
