It’s 2016 and practically every famous person owns his own range of fashion products from colognes to shirts to pants all down to shoes, asides being an extra source of income, it’s a way to really establish yourself and your brand. Most importantly if you’re a rapper and you have no sneaker deal, you will not be taken seriously in this day and age. With the sudden increase in celebrity sneaker deals, here are the celebrity sneakers worth spending money on.
CREEPERS - RIHANNA X PUMA
Who makes suede sneakers and gets away with it? Rihanna’s collaboration with Puma might just be what you need to up your sneaker game. Rihanna’s creepers come with golden logo foils. The game-changing shoe stands on a 1-1.5” platform and is a sure way to stand out even in a suit.
YEEZY 350 BOOST – KANYE X ADIDAS
Inspired and designed by Kanye West, the yeezy 350 boost is a low-top sneaker which first debuted in the yeezy season fashion show, February 2015. Available in selected colours, this could as well be the most comfortable celebrity footwear of all time and the only Mr West clothing item worth buying.
REEBOK CLASSIC LEATHER – KENDRICK LAMAR X REEBOK
The Reebok classic x Kendrick Lamar classic leather is the brands latest attempt to re-launch the Reebok classic. The sneaker arrives in a classic look featuring a premium white leather upper with a complementary gum sole underneath. Tonal laces accompany the clean kicks, and appropriated branding can be seen alongside, on the tongue and at the heel. The shoe is a tribute to bridge the divide between two of Lamar’s hometown gangs, the Blood’s and Crip’s. Lamar decided to incorporate this into the design by making one shoe Blood’s oriented, and the other Crip’s. On the heel of one shoe is written Red, while the other has Blue. A white midsole and a gum based outsole complete the overall look.
ADIDAS EQT RUNNING GUIDANCE '93 – PUSHA T
G.O.O.D. Music artist Pusha T released his first sneaker late last year called the "Adidas EQT Running Guidance '93 'King Push'." The Adidas collaboration went for $200 and sold out pretty quick. Like Big Sean, the Adidas Originals Twitter account has been teasing a new Pusha T collaboration, so we'll have to see what King Push has on deck. It features fish scale uppers in an off-white colour which is supposed to depict his drug dealing past.
FIERCE – KYLIE X PUMA
Designed with ultimate minimalism, Kylie describes Fierce as “a lightweight trainer with zero excuses.” It features several black panels and an elongated tongue much like Rihanna’s new Pumas.
