“I’ve been watching Nice Kicks since high school,” says Offset backstage at Agenda Las Vegas. Yup, the man that currently has the whole country rapping “raindrops, drop top” and his dabbing compadres may rep the Nawfside but one look south and you’ll see some of the best sneakers from both the past and the present.
Yes, Migos are on top of the world right now. Recently releasing a critically acclaimed album, Culture, the chart topping trio was out at Agenda Las Vegas to promote their Yung Rich Nation clothing line, shop at the Vintage Frames booth and perform later that night at Drai’s. What clothes, kicks and jewelry did they bring out for such a special occasion and why? We caught up with the Atlanta outfit to find out exactly that.

Quavo // Levi’s x Air Jordan 1
Quavo: “You don’t never see these and I got the Culture half-and-half tee. The Levi’s 1s just came from the streets, from the Nawf. I felt like all the OGs on the Nawfside used to have these and to be an OG you have to rock them. Actually, these were like the first package to come out! Pants and the shoes. So just to be an originator, and a creator and a dab originator I had to put ’em on. I got the pants that came with the shoes they’re so big because back in the day we used to wear our pants big so I gotta get ’em tailored. Then I got the Yoda chain: space coupe Quavo Yoda, pourin’ drinkin’ sodas…ya dig?”

Offset // Yeezy Season 3 Boots
Offset: “I’m having flavor, I got ’em from Yeezy, he sent ’em, ya dig? He sent me the gear, we get the little passcode and you can go on there and get what you get. Shoutout to Ye.”
Nice Kicks: Will we see you modeling in the next Yeezy Season show?
Offset: “Hold that down, just wait on it. Can’t give away everything.”
Takeoff // VLONE x Nike Air Force 1 Low
Takeoff: “You know, shoutout to my boy Bari, the VLONE Air Force 1s, datway, the VLONE way, you know how we do it. I got these laced up with black laces, not the orange laces, my flavor. Then I’ve got on Fear of God jeans, Yung Rich Nation Culture t-shirt, half-and-half with black and orange, you dig! Can’t forget the Patek Philippe watch, you know datway, the big boy! And these shades right here? Casanova, one-of-one. You’ll never see nobody else in the world with these on unless I lost them. Yung Rich Nation bag, too. You know, laptop way, datway. I can’t give away the rest of my flavor, if they know how I’m coming they gonna try to dress like me so I gotta keep it on the low and surprise them. I might pull out the “Space Jams” out of the closet but only the old ones, it feels better when it’s old. Vintage, datway.”
