Kim Kardashian and Kanye West attend a basketball game between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Cleveland Cavaliers at Staples Center on Jan. 13, 2020 in Los Angeles. 

Thanks to the rise of celebrity collaborations over the past decade, sneaker culture has blossomed as one of the most coveted sectors in the fashion industry. From Kanye West's Yeezys line to Beyoncé's new Ivy Park x Adidas collection, your favorite artists love showing off their fresh kicks just as much as they love designing them.

This week, Lil Wayne went designer with his Gucci sneakers at a recent Green Bay Packers home game, while DJ Khaled kept things classic with the timeless Air Jordan 3's at his Miami home. Billboard Style compiled a list of some of music's all-stars sporting the hottest sneakers over the past week. 

Fabolous: John Geiger 003 

Fab’s prolific sneaker game hasn’t wavered throughout his two decades in the music game. Here, he completes his relaxed date night outfit with a pair of multi-colored John Geiger 003s, which are currently sold-out online.

It’s a rare sight to find West in something other than Yeezy footwear these days: he stepped out with Kim Kardashian-West to catch a courtside view of LeBron James and the Lakers at the Staples Center on Monday (Jan. 13). The 42-year-old kept things simple with a pair of his brown Yeezy Combat boots.

If there’s one thing we learned about DaBaby in 2019, it’s that he enjoys a crisp pair of Air Jordans. The Charlotte native posed on the set of a video shoot alongside Lil Baby and Stunna 4 Vegas rocking Gym Red Jordan 9s. The durable white/red Jays were released back in October, but Baby kept his on ice.

Offset: Air Force 1 Low Brown Pride (slide 2)

Offset boasts one of the rarest Air Force 1 and Nike SB Dunk collections in existence. The Migos rapper hit the studio in a comfortable mocha tracksuit, which was augmented by a pair of Brown Pride AF1s, which released back in 2005.

DJ Khaled - Air Jordan 3 “True Blue”

Everyone knows DJ Khaled loves a good pair of Air Jordan 3s. While Nike has already blessed the Miami mogul with his own custom colorways in the past. Khaled kept things casual, electing to go with the classic True Blue 3s for a backyard video shoot of sorts this week.

Billie Eilish: Tom Sachs x Nike Mars Yard Overshoe

Billie Eilish’s oversized wardrobe has become part of her aesthetic, and the teenage pop star went against the grain once again by wearing a pair of shorts with the Tom Sachs x Nike Mars Yard Overshoe. It's a move that may have sneakerheads doing a double take, but style choices like these are what separates Eilish from the pack. 

Lil Wayne: Gucci Ace Rombus Leather Sneakers

Weezy has rocked just about every style of footwear in his career, from Ugg boots to Jordans. The New Orleans native headed to Lambeau Field on Sunday (Jan. 12) to watch his Green Bay Packers take home a victory over the Seattle Seahawks. Lil Wayne opted to complement his Packer attire and white mink coat with a pair of Gucci sneakers, and showed them off on the field as he celebrated the win.

Lil Baby: Nike Air Force 1

White Air Force 1s have likely been a staple in Lil Baby’s closet since before his days of rap fame. The ATL rhymer keeps the classics in rotation to go along with his fashionable Palm Angels tracksuit.

Moneybagg Yo refuses to leave the house without being draped in designer wear. With stacks of cash covering his eyes, the rapper posts up on his deck overlooking the ocean to show off his Louis Vuitton sneakers matching the spotted pattern of his LV long sleeve shirt. 

Teyana Taylor: Nike Air Force 1 “Mystic Navy”

Teyana Taylor is one of the most stylish artists when it comes to her streetwear, thanks to her daring and effortless fashion sense. The singer, who is currently the face of Jordan's new women's athleisure collection, blends a colorful pair of Air Force 1's into her block-patterned outfit while traveling through an Atlanta airport. A bag of Ruffles chips stays in the shot -- and she somehow makes it work.
