Ever meet one of those people that’s just outright cool? You can’t explain it, but the effortless aura they emit just makes you respect them. John Gotty is one of those people. But the man behind The Smoking Section isn’t just a respected lifestyle and music writer, he’s quite the purveyor of fine footwear. We recently had a chance to catch up with Gotty and ask him about the sneaks he finds himself wearing more than any others. Though his collection hovers in the hundreds, he keeps these pairs closer than the rest. Check out his current rotation.
NIKE LEBRON 8 V1 & V2
John Gotty: “Between V1 and V2, I’ve prolly spent more money on the latest LeBrons than any other sneaker in a while. And without a doubt, I’d say they’re worth every penny. The materials are durable and easy to clean, many of the colorways are expressive and the comfort is top notch. But I only favor wearing the higher-cut. The Sprites and other low models look nice, but they don’t have the same aggressiveness.”
