Just the same, we asked YOU to tell us who should be considered for 2017 #CSSMVP honors.
Well, the preliminary votes are in and the big choice is up to you. With a final four of Odell Beckham Jr., Wale, Fabolous and Travis Scott, vote in the poll at the bottom to choose the 2017 #CSSMVP.
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: Air Jordan 5 Michigan PEs, Mache x New Balance 247 Luxe Custom, Air Jordan 14 White/Red, Air Jordan 5 “Olive,” adidas Yeezy Boost 350s, adidas Yeezy Boost 750s, Pharrell x adidas NMD, Nike Air Foamposite One “Dark Neon Royal,” Louis Vuitton Don, VLONE x Nike Air Force 1, Air Jordan 2 “Quai 54,” Raf Simons x adidas Ozweego, Coca Cola x Kith x Converse Chuck Taylor, Supreme x Nike Air Force 2 Low, Don C x Air Jordan 2, PSNY x Air Jordan 12, Supreme x Nike Air More Uptempo, Nike Air Max CB94 “Dertty,” Air Jordan 8 Kobe PE, atmos x Air Jordan 3, Air Jordan 11 “Grey Suede”
Aging with grace and taking a different approach to ‘Dad Style,’ Fabolous can still hang with the kids when it comes to rocking fly kicks and contemporary fits. Well aware of trends and also capable of pulling nostalgia from the past referencing sports, hip hop and his city, Fab is still on top of his game despite being almost two decades in.
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.
2018 CSS season will begin next week, stay tuned…
