Celebrity Sneakers January 2 2016

by Brandon Richard

We say hello to 2016 with the year's first celebrity sneaker spotlight.

New Year's Eve is typically a slow time for sneaker news, but Kanye West changed the course when he dropped his Nike diss track "Facts" late Thursday night. The record is aimed directly at his former partners in Beaverton, and he even goes as far as to say that the company treats its employees like slaves. He also credits Drake and Don C for their only hot sneaker releases last year and insinuates that they had to fork over a billion dollars to keep LeBron James from bolting. Is the song actually filled with facts? No. Did it get computers putin' on a holiday? Absolutely.

After being tallied as the most worn sneaker by celebrities in our 2015 year-end recap, the adidas Yeezy 350 Boost starts the new year off as the Celebrity Sneaker of the Week. Perhaps validating some of Kanye's claims, the shoe was spotted on Kylie Jenner, Pusha T, Austin Mahone, Bow Wow, LeBron James associate Da Real Lambo and even former rival Taylor Swift.

Nas feeling purified, Snoop Dogg returns to his roots, Fab reps Fab and more in today's Celebrity #SoleWatch.

Last year, Kanye was voted Sole Celebrity of the Week more than anyone else, topping the count 8 times. Let us know who you think stands out the most in the first recap of 2016 by voting below.
