My 5: The Cool Kids' Sneaker Rotation

Life after Js? It?s a scary thought for some but not The Cool Kids. Having rocked retros for years on years on years, Chuck Inglish and Sir Michael Rocks continue to stay ahead of the curve. While the Midwest MCs aren?t ?off? sneakers they are ?on? to some new things, mixing up staple shoes with obscure classics. What are Chuck and Mikey rocking in the days leading up to their debut album? Find out in this dual-disc release of My 5.

Sir Michael Rocks

Air Jordan 6 Black/Infrared

Air Jordan 6 Black/Infrared

Sir Michael Rocks: “I?ve got Jordans in the rotation, but these are the most recent wear. They go with classic Bulls apparel, and they?re the 6s, one of the hardest pairs ever. I?m really only messing with the original color Jordans. Those are like Jordan 1s to me. The 6s go with a lot of different stuff. They?re orginal, classic Jordans. The Jordan game?s a little congested right now so I?m gonna let it breathe for a little. I?m gonna always be on the Mikes though because Chicago?s where it?s from and we did it the hardest. I?m kinda feelin? a couple different things shoe wise.”

Ralph Lauren Boat Shoes

Ralph Lauren Boat Shoes

Sir Michael Rocks: “I?ve got an affinity towards ?em. They go with a lot more of the stuff I?m wearing now. They?re casual but they?re still comfortable. It?s not like I?m about to go hoop in ?em, but they?re still comfy. I?ve got a couple pairs of Ralph Lauren joints, some yellow ones with a white sole and some brown ones with gold eyelets.”

Keds Champion Lo-Rise

Keds Champion Lo-Rise

Sir Michael Rocks: “They kinda look like Vans but it?s a thinner sole. It?s more of a walking sole than a skateboard sole. They?ve got the cool leather laces, they come in solid colors that I can throw on with a couple different things and get a couple different looks out of ?em.”

Clarks Jink

Clarks Jink Brown Suede

Sir Michael Rocks: “Low, suede, with a thinner sole than the Wallabees. They?re super comfy. I like a nice cool brown suede so I can throw ?em on with some cool stuff and set it off. I?m kinda on that old dad swag right now. I can do me in ?em with out trying to do too much.”

Vans Authentic

Vans Authentic

Sir Michael Rocks: “I like the original Vans, low top joints with the laces in ?em. I like them for the same reason as the Keds but those are a little more sporty. If I?m throwing on a jersey I can throw on some Vans to hit it with the off color without doing too much. I wanted to give the Jordan game a little breather for a second and reflect on some other stuff; give it another look for a while.”

  1. 6 and 11s are the only ones I would rock. I gotta give love to ol boy for those Wallabees though, classic east coast gear but I cant pull them hoz off.

      • Str8 up… if u really got swag u can rock anything and make it fye not just jordans that get alot of hype

          • There were a couple of dope fusions, like the firepits. ?People love to hate on fusions, but true sneaker heads can cut the wheat from the chaff.

      • Why he gotta be a hypebeast cuz he don’t like your boyfriend’s choice of sneakers. He said the only 1′s that he likes on “THIS LIST” is the 6′s & 11′s. Maybe he likes other shoes that aren’t on this list??? Now he would be a hypebeast if he said he liked all their sneakers just cuz they like them … Hypebeasts are so quick to call other ppl hypebeast smh

          • “6s and 11s are the only ones I would rock that are on this list” <<< here it is lil mommas. Im gonna start calling everyone on here running their mouth lil mommas cuz yall act like some bitches. I rock more than Js and pull off a lot of shit but my wardrobe doesnt go well with wallabees. I repspect a lot of shoes but that doesnt mean that I personally wear them, which is the case with most people on here Im sure.

          • Actually.. He DIDNT say this list, but if people were smart enough to use like not even 3rd grade reading? comprehension, it was obvious that THIS LIST was implied and that the dude really didnt mean all that he would rock is 6s and 11s….I dont even understand how its logical to think the dude meant the only kicks he would ever rock are 6s and 11s

  2. It’s true that the Jordan game is congested right now, but still man I rock what I like. I won’t wear different stuff that I’m not really in to, just to be different.

  3. How you calling dude a hypebeast cause he’d rather wear tennis shoes than boat shoes? I wouldn’t be caught dead in Toms, Sperry’s or Vans. They look gay as fuck! Why would any man want his ankles exposed? Y’all a bunch of fucking queers yo.?

  4. these niggas selection are straight trash!!!..
    i wouldnt be caught dead wearing most of these, and if i am, kill me again!!!

  7. all talkin about toms bein girl shoes but yet, werent Js originally men shoes, but look now. sooo just stfu and realize its THEIR list, their style its what they want.

    • They aren’t girls shoes but they don’t look right when men rock them.?
      I’d only buy them because they are for a good cause.?
