It’s a wrap for Celebrity Sneaker Stalker in 2017 but it’s still up to you to let us know who rocked the best heat and who rocked it best.
After going through the best of the best from CSS, we’ve narrowed it down to a field of 12 candidates for the 2017 #CSSMVP. From A$AP Rocky to Travis Scott, this year’s gold gang is full of fresh faces with feet and head to tie style that’s defining the next generation.
Get a look at our 2017 All-CSS First Team and vote in the poll to decide who should be considered for 2017 #CSSMVP.
Best Wears: Air Jordan 1 “Satin,” Gucci Ace, Balenciaga Triple S, Raf Simons x adidas Ozweego, adidas Yeezy Boost 350s, Levi’s x Air Jordan 1, Pharrell x Adidas NMD
Dipped in designer, Quavo brings all the flash the new Atlanta in known for while still surprising us with seldom seen Jordans from the 2000s. Icy, loud, and lavish, the Migos frontman had more fun than anyone in 2017 and his outfits embodied it.
Best Wears: OG Air Jordan 1s, Air Jordan 4 “Black Cat,” Supreme x Nike Dunk High, Gosha Rubchinsky x FILA T1 Mid, VLONE x Nike Air Force 1s, Air Jordan 1 “Shattered Backboard,” adidas Y3 Pure Boost ZG Knit
Much is still unknown in regards to A$AP Rocky and his partnership with Under Armour. What is very known is that Flacko Jodye is still the flyest dude in the game. From lace swapping Vans to unarchiving OG Air Jordan 1s, Rocky still proves different in an era where everyone trying to be different ends up looking the same.
Best Wears: Nike MAG, Air Jordan 4 “Tour Yellow,” Air Jordan 5 “Laser,” Air Jordan 5 “University Blue,” adidas Yeezy Powerphase, Supreme x Nike Air Max 98, Supreme x Nike Air More Uptempo, Air Jordan 5 “Raging Bull”
As much as old heads give Lil Yachty crap for embodying the care-free, in the now attitude of the youth, he knows his history when it comes to kicks. Rocking forgotten retros and doing it alongside vintage merch or the trends of today, Lil Boat is still making waves in CSS.
Odell Beckham Jr.
Best Wears: Supreme x Nike Air More Uptempo, VLONE x Nike Air Force 1, Air Jordan 11 “Grey Suede,” Air Jordan 1 “Art Basel,” Supreme x Nike Air Max 98, Louis Vuitton Don, Nike Air Yeezy “Red October”
Reupping with Nike, Odell Beckham Jr. became a fixture for the Swoosh and Supreme over the course of the year. Popping up at any and every party, the celebrity wide out has the most popular haircut in the game and the footwear to match.
Best Wears: Off-White x Air Jordan 1, Wish x adidas SL Loop, Pharrell x adidas NMD, Air Jordan 5 Michigan PE, Kanye West x A Bathing Ape Bapesta, Nike Air Max 95 “Animal,” Vetements x Reebok Instapump Fury, KAWS x Air Jordan 4, Air Jordan 3 “Shine” Custom by Mache
Becoming a dad and dropping social media, Wale was quieter in the noise that is the internet this year but still is the man when it comes to kicks. Rocking hard hitters from Harbaugh and still sticking to his DC roots, even a laid back Folarin is still on the go-mode when it comes to rocking heat both old and new.
Best Wears: ESPO x Nike Air Force II, Nike Air Force 1 Low “Taiwan,” Air Jordan 4 “Laser,” KAWS x Air Jordan 4, Travis Scott x Nike Air Force 1, Air Jordan 4 “Lightning,” Air Jordan 4 “Cool Grey,” Nike Dunk High “Easter,” Air Jordan 1 “Satin” Royal, Off-White x Nike Collection, Tom Sachs x Nike Mars Yard 2.0
Cactus Jack had one hell of a 2017 on the sneaker front. Putting out a collaboration with Jordan and dropping his own Air Force 1, the H-Town hitmaker made “NikeBoyz” a thing and kept it interesting on the fashion front. Whether rocking fragment 1s in Nine Inch Nails tees from For All to Envy or lacing up “Lighting” 4s courtside at a Rockets game, Travis Scott was one to watch.
