Hip-hop living legend Bun B isn’t the only known sneaker enthusiast that resides in H-Town. Ask around, and many people involved in Houston’s music scene will tell you that Killa Kyleon rarely rocks “regular average” sneakers. If word of mouth is not enough, our Celebrity Sneaker Stalker column has featured him in shoes such as the “Concord” Air Jordan 11, the Nike Trainer Max ’91 and the adidas Crazy 8. We recently caught up with Killa Gorilla to see which kicks make up his current rotation. Does Kyleon have one of the most assorted rotations you’ve seen in our My 5 series?

Nike Air Max Barkley “Action Red”

Killa Kyleon's Sneaker Rotation

Killa Kyleon: “The Barkleys are just classic. I’m wearing the all-red Air Max Barkleys right now. That model dropped when I was in middle school. To us, they were the nicest shoes ever.”

    • Yeezy Taught Me

      ?you obviously dont listen to hip hop especially H-Town music. So yeaaa he is somebody rapper that is why they did sneaker 5 rotation around him. What is really crazy when people like you call his rotation weak when he really kept it true but had he thrown in more Jays you guys would have been on his ass about how he is hypebeast and what not….. smh haters

    • The ignorance in your comment says a lot about who you are. What the man puts on his feet has NOTHING to do with how known he is. He may be a local artist but he has to have some type of following to end up on here. And no, I am NOT a dick rider. I have never heard of this dude. I just really despise your ignorance.

    • ijust hateshit

      Sit you bitch ass down and salute slim thugs bosshogg outlawz. You need to download their shit. That’s real underground music. C Ward , PJ, j dawg, young black, sir daily. I can tell you TV hoe. If it ain’t on Comcast you wont blast.

      • C.Lewis

        Exactly jus cuz u bitches never heard of him don’t mean he ain’t nobody.. That boy go hard an he put it down on freestyles that boy from H town Texas an he always do his thang so he might not be nobody to y’all but he somebody in Texas

        A lot of dumb niggas out there just think that rappers who are heavily commercialized are the ones who are great rappers. If you wanted the most commercialized artists out there go listen to Bieber or some other wack ass shit..

    • That shit sounds so damn hypebeastish. And where you been Killa Kyleon is a well known rapper and shits on a lot of rappers now. He got to someone to be on Nice Kicks.

    • -_-

      You obviously have no idea who this guy is. And I’m a little surprised you didn’t hop all over his dick since he has the whole galaxy collection…

  1. Joel Oliver

    These aren’t regular average sneakers? ?Aside from the Galaxy foams that were just about impossible to get for regular average people, everything else can be got… I mean the ’04 release of the Olympic 7s are going for $400+ right now on flightclub, that’s not impossible…. ?I just expected some craziness. ?

  2. Sam

    People don’t understand that it’s a sneaker “rotation,” meaning what he rocks regularly… The point of this section isn’t to just talk about the most expensive sneakers he owns. It’s what he likes to wear! I like this list.

    • Joel Oliver

      I understand what a sneaker rotation is, I just thought he was going to show some crazy stuff because the article led off with ”
      Killa Kyleon?rarely rocks ?regular average? sneakers”… I’m not saying they aren’t nice shoes, I just thought he’d have something more exclusive based upon the lead in. ?That’s all I’m saying.

      • Coby

        This comment is extremely ignorant and defines a hypebeast. The only way you’ll see exclusive shit is when NBA players get PE’s, as far as rappers they might get it earlier but nothing more. Same shoes you could get, with the exception of the galaxies that are overrated imo. But that comment about them being regular shows is dumb, you expect him to have some jet pack type jays that literally help him fly ? All these shoes are dope as fuck, especially the Tempos, rather have the mystic real though but still a classic.

        • Mdiehl1981

          Ur a retard. Did u read the opening article?? It says he rairly rocks normal shit. All of it was normal and sat on shelves. Seriously dude. Step ur game up and READ!

        • Joel Oliver

          Uh… jetpack Js would be fly, but I don’t think my comment is “ignorant” or makes me a “hypebeast”. ?Certainly you are aware that there are about a billion different varieties of release between GR and PE right? ?

          I just thought I’d see stuff like the House of Hoops Houston Vandal, or like a Doerenbecher, or quai 54s, or Tokyo Js, Carmine 6, ?or better yet Olympic 6s, which are way rarer than the 7s…. How about ANY Jordan that’s not set to retro in a couple months?? ?I’d define soon to drop, and recently dropped stuff as “regular average”. ?Wouldn’t you? ?All the shoes in his list dropped in the past 2 years, or will drop in the coming months, in the case of the Js… that’s pretty regular average to me. ?No?

          I mean I could walk into a Finish Line or Jimmy Jazz and buy 2 of the 5 pair in this list… right now. ?How is that not regular and average? ?The galaxy pack just dropped, which in my opinion makes it relatively regular and average, aside, of course, from Galaxys, which I would agree are overhyped nonsense at this point, but certainly not “regular average”. ?

          And PEs would be dope, but I didn’t expect him to bring out PEs. ?I did have some expectation that he would have some crazy shit, when the article leads off with “rarely rocks ?regular average? sneakers” that I’m not going to see a bunch of stuff I have access to. ?I am by all accounts a regular and average dude, and aside from galaxys I could own all of those shoes if I wanted them, no problem. ?

        • Luol Dengerous!

          So the galaxy foams and olympic 7’s early aren’t expensive/rare? good I’d like to cop both right now. Oh wait i cant they’re $2000. :l

          • Joel Oliver

            Olympic 7s can be had in a huge selection of sizes right now from flightclub for $425ish. ?And I excluded the galaxy foams… they’re expensive/rare/limited.

            And he’s a rapper, shocker of the century he got Olympic 7s and galaxy foams… bring something not from this year to the table.

          • Guest

            “Bring something not from this year to the table”…you’re a dumbass. ?So is it not cool to your standards to wear something that has released in the past 12 months? ?WTF is wrong with you. ?What shoes are in your rotation right now? ?I guess shoes that haven’t been released recently? ?Everyone is labeled a hypebeast or fake these days. ?I really don’t understand. ?Everyone wants a Ferrari or Lambo so if you drive one, you are a hypebeast I guess.

          • Joel Oliver

            No, I’m not saying that, the lead for this article was that he “rarely rocks ?regular average? sneakers”… which to me would mean he doesn’t just wear shit that has released in the past 12 months. ?

            Shoes in my rotation right now: ?

            1) Flight Light 2010s
            2) Galaxy Dunks
            3) ACG Dunks
            4) AC Blazer in 3M
            5) Black/Cement 3
            6) ATC IIs (white/hot lava)
            7) CB34 (not air max)

            Important information regarding my rotation: ?I’m not claiming I rock above average shit, and I’m not being featured on Nice Kicks. ?Also, my “rotation” is much more than 5 shoes, I’m not saying my collection is insane, or anything, but I wear everything I own, I wore my Concords a few weeks ago. ?I’m not labeling anyone anything, I just thought he was going to bring some heat since the article said “rarely rocks “regular average” sneakers”. ?That to me would mean “you’re going to see some shit now”. ?Not shit I can walk into a Finish Line and buy.

          • R3ckl3ss_201

            Omg but you an idiot its just an intro to hype(beast) you up to see his rotation that it dumb i swear
            It that “No Child Left Behind” program that Bush left us thank you bush for making us dummer ;)

  3. Codyboehm15

    I’m jammin my killa kyleon mix tape right now that I got at the Htown sneaker summit. And these aren’t average shoes. Do you see any1 walking around rocking clean looking Lebron 8s, or Olympic 7s the answer is hell no. Bad ass rapper! And bad ass rotation! Way to keep it real! 361 all day!!

  4. BigDre

    just bc he a rapper dont mean he cant like the same shit we like. a rotation is just that:kicks that he is wearing regularly. he may or may not hv heat but that doesnt matter. besides he cld really give a shit what u think of him. not a bad rotation if ya ask me

  5. Carli

    8V2 Summit Lake Hornets better than the 9 Hornets?? That dude crazy. not even closeee. LeBron 9 Hornets are the best no doubt!

  6. Skittles72692

    Not knocking anybody who wears them, but I’m not really feelin’ the Galaxy foams as much as I did when they first came out. Seems like every celeb is wearing them. Extremely over-saturated.?

  7. jay

    sneaker list rotation is on point, I got those J’s when the retro’d the first time, the cb4 is also a cop, you tell he no dayum hypebeast like some of these other cats that put retro jordans on there, show me some O’G’ retro’s then we can talk.

  8. Hugehead Mm

    thats a decent rotation, the uptempos are nice. i like em all,,the galaxy flight ones are the nicest out all the galaxys, olympic 7’s are a nice kick around sneaker, not a big fan of the barkleys, but to each his own, ?i think them foams are probably the ugliest sneaks i ever seen and will ever see . they fuckin disgusting,?

  9. yeezys in my butthole, oh yeah

    Galaxy “foams” are really just a barney purple sneaker with white dots on them, I don’t really understand what is so great about them, I like h town rap, he would be way more dope and ballin? if he had a nick name like keezy or something.

  10. RDogg23

    I like the LeBron 7 “SLH” better than the 8’s. The 8’s look funky to me. The 9’s blow the whole line out of the water! Got the “Galaxy” and “SLH” 9’s!

  11. HB

    He wears J’s and NIke’s, what a hypebeast. ?Here are some rules to be accepted by most of the morons on here. ?Don’t have a shoe in your rotation that has released in the past year or have been talked about in the past year. ?Otherwise you are a hypebeast. ?What loser would wear a shoe that they have recently purchased? ?What loser would wear a shoe that goes for under $1,000 on FlightClub? ?What loser would wear a shoe that isn’t a PE? ?I for one like to wear the shoes I choose to buy. ?I was lucky enough to get a pair of Concords (which I had my junior year in high school) and I wear them once a week. ?I wonder how many people have labeled me a hypebeast for wearing them…

  12. Anonymous

    it’s funny because the people that call these guys “hypebeast” can’t afford or let alone get a pair themselves so honestly yall sound like jealous haters…btw im in my damn cements as we speak
