Celebrity Sole Watch: 9.27.14

words // Brandon Richard

We're back with the latest recap of the past week in celebrity sneakers.

Last weekend, Pharrell's first collection with adidas Originals officially launched and appeared to fare well at retail. Predictably, the red-based colorway had the best results, a trend that stems from Kanye West's 'Red October' Air Yeezy 2 release. Why are people so drawn to the color red? Our own Gerald Flores delivered a scientific breakdown earlier this week.

The Air Jordan 4 and Nike Air Force 1 split Celebrity Sneaker of the Week honors this time around. Enjoying a bit of a renaissance with celebs, the Air Force 1 is being carried by classic white-on-whites and Riccardo Tisci's collaboration. Do you think we'll ever see the Air Force 1 return to its early-2000s popularity?

AJ Green tours the 4, Quavo cooks in Ceramics, Shawty Lo shames and much more this all-new Celebrity Sole Watch.

With a fresh pair of Nike MAGs, The Weeknd earned your vote for the 9.20 Sole Celebrity of the Week. Unfortunately, he isn't featured in this week's spotlight, so let us know who you think should take his spot by casting your vote for the top celeb sneakerhead below.
