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 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 (ending Jan. 24), Travis Scott flexed his devotion to Nike (as well as his expensive sportscar), while Suga of BTS opted for comfort in classic Vans as the boy band rehearsed for Sunday’s Grammy Awards. Billboard Style compiled a list of some of music’s all-stars sporting the hottest sneakers over the past week.
Travis Scott: Air Jordan 1 Fragment
Travis Scott flexed on everyone with a pair of the rare Jordan 1 Fragment’s, which actually matched the blue interior of the sports car he picked out to drive for the day from his fleet of whips.
Wale: Dunk Low Nike x Off-White University Gold/Midnight Blue
Wale is one of the most revered sneakerheads in all of rap. His footwear hasn’t lost a step on his Jan. 18 North American tour stop in Memphis, as Folarin stunted in a pair of the University Gold Nike x OFF-White Dunks to match his Prada socks.
Offset: CLOT x Air Force 1 Low Premium ‘Rose Gold Silk’
Offset didn’t waste any time breaking out the entire CLOT x Nike collaboration outfit from the silky tracksuit to the blush Air Force 1’s that dropped on Jan. 21. He made sure to show off on everyone by letting his followers know he was posing in front of a $2 million painting.
Kanye West: YEEZY Combat Boots
West was spotted leaving his office on Martin Luther King Jr. Day talking things over with longtime close friend and designer Don C. Kanye kept things casual with a blue hoodie, black pants, and a pair of his YEEZY Combat Boots.
Blueface: Balenciaga Speed Sneakers
Blueface hung up his high school football cleats for a life of designer footwear. Fittingly, the West Coast rhymer matches his namesake with a pair of the Balenciaga Speed Sneakers in the same royal blue shade.
Fabulous: Yeezy Boost 700 Carbon Blue
Fabolous was one of the early co-signers of Kanye West’s Yeezy line with Adidas. The Brooklyn native hit up the Chance Theater stage in upstate New York on Jan. 17, where he sported a pair of the Carbon Blue Yeezy Boost 700’s.
Justin Bieber: eS Accel Slim Black Skate Slim Shoes
Biebs was caught strolling along with his wife Hailey Baldwin in the streets of Los Angeles after a possible workout/some time spent in the gym. The singer kept it casual with a black hoodie and shorts to go with a pair of skating sneakers that would cost you as much as a videogame.
Lil Baby: Air Jordan 1 Shattered Backboard 3.0
Lil Baby brought out the glossy Shattered Backboard 3.0 Jordan 1’s for some quality father-son time. The gleaming orange kicks actually matched the paint job of his carrot-colored Lamborghini perfectly.
Suga (BTS): Vans Old Skool
BTS are hard at work on nailing their upcoming performance slated for the Grammy Awards on Sunday. Some candid shots surfaced on their Instagram during rehearsals after a quick meetup with Ariana Grande on Wednesday (Jan. 22), which found boy band member Suga laced in a pair of the everyday Vans low-tops.
Kevin Gates: Air Force 1 Low Off-White
Kevin Gates pulled up to Complex‘s “Everyday Struggle” show set on Thursday (Jan. 23) with a pair of the Off-White Air Force 1’s. But it isn’t his footwear that people are questioning, as he braved NYC’s frigid January weather in Chicago Bulls game shorts.
