The people have spoken, and Wale is your 2013 #CSSMVP. Over the course of the year, Mr. Folarin headlined Celebrity Sneaker Stalker a whopping 11 times, tying Drake and Trinidad Jame$ for the most headliner appearances. Promo push for his third album, The Gifted, saw Wale wear an OG pair of Air Jordan 17 Low “Lightnings” on 106 & Park, perhaps the best CSS moment of the year. A summer festival run was highlighted by “Python” Air Jordan 3 Customs by JBF, followed by Nike LeBron sightings old and new during his tour with J. Cole.

Wale also showed range in 2013, sporting an array of Air Maxes, SBs, adidas, ASICS and designer sneakers, all the while still being first on just about every pair of Foams. You can check out his 2013 sneaker résumé here.

Having won the inaugural #CSSMVP award in 2012, will Wale three-peat in 2014? Tune in to Celebrity Sneaker Stalker next Thursday to see who takes the early lead.
