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 popular Yeezys line to Travis Scott‘s blossoming relationship with Nike, your favorite artists love showing off their fresh kicks just as much as they love designing them.
This week, Billie Eilish dominated the Grammys red carpet with her eye-catching Flash Trek sneakers, while rapper Jim Jones paid homage to the late Kobe Bryant by sporting Lakers Air Force 1’s. Billboard Style compiled a list of some of music’s all-stars sporting the hottest sneakers over the past week.

DJ Khaled: Reverse Air Jordan Bred 1 ’85
Khaled must’ve gotten a care package early from Michael Jordan himself, as the We The Best mogul stunted in the unreleased Reverse Air Jordan Bred 1’s. The luscious red leather was the perfect choice to bounce off his black suit on the red carpet.
