Did anyone dig into the vault? Did anyone get the Cortez memo? Find out all of the above in this week’s Celebrity Sneaker Stalker. As always, tell us who brought out the best kicks in the comment section and on Twitter.
Apparently inspiration works both ways, perhaps most notably in the case of the Nike Air Foamposite One “Fighter Jet” and Chris Brown’s Lamborghini Aventador paint job. It’s clear where Nike drew the inspiration from for the Foams, but Chris Brown seemingly took things a step further by adorning his car with similar colors and patterns. While it may not be a mirror image of the sneaker, aside from the fact that it’s a Lamborghini, the new paint job should do a good job of turning heads all the same. Despite being a budding graffiti artist, we doubt Brown tackled this artwork himself. What are your thoughts on this undertaking? Will this spur further car paint jobs drawing inspiration from kicks’ colorways?
Decked out debuts detail this week’s Celebrity Sneaker Stalker. From BET Award festivities to music video shoots, we get our first on-foot looks at new release from LeBron, Jordan, Reebok and adidas. What did Swizz Beatz, Trinidad Jame$, Guest Editor Stalley and more wear this week? Read on to find out and let us know who rocked the best kicks on Twitter and in the comment section.
Award shows are always a place for fashion, and a trend or two is usually started on one of the various red carpets. Last night, however, Chris Brown showcased just how good the Reebok Shaqnosis looks on foot on stage. Brown and his team of dancers took to the 2013 BET Awards stage rocking the black and white OG colorway of the Reebok Classics model. The hypnotizing sneaker is made up to be an exact replica of the shoes Shaquille O’Neal wore during the 1995-96 NBA season. The Shaqnosis was polarizing when it first released, but fans seem to have a greater appreciation for them. The Reebok Shaqnosis will release at key retailers on Friday, July 12. Did seeing them during Chris Brown’s performance change your thoughts on the shoe?
