Today, Big Sean released his sophomore album Hall of Fame. While the Detroit native has his sights set on hip-hop hierarchy, he’s already established himself as a favorite in the footwear realm. With the launch of his second collaborative kick from adidas Originals on the way, we take a look back at Sean’s footprints by each album and mixtape drop. Check it out in this installment of Career Catalog.

Finally Famous: The Mixtape

Heavy Rotation: Retro Jordans, Nike Blazers, Nike Dunks

Ain’t Celine but fittin’ to put the D on, Big Sean went from doing talent shows to playing some of the most famous venues and universities in his home state of Michigan after inking with G.O.O.D. on his debut mixtape. Dipped in Ice Cream gear and Burn Rubber fitteds, a young Sean lived up to his “Getcha Some” bars by being one of the freshest newcomers on the hip hop scene. His 2008 footwear picks were both timeless and of the moment, rocking rare Jordan retros before Twitter RSVPs and casual colorways of Nike Sportswear staples.
