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 Drake’s close relationship to Nike, to Virgil Abloh’s rare Off-White x Nike collaborations, your favorites love showing off their fresh kicks just as much as they love designing them.
This week, Saweetie channels her inner skater girl, and Travis Scott stays loyal to Nike while playing around with beats in his home studio. Here, Billboard Style compiles a list of some of music’s all-stars sporting the hottest sneakers over the past week.
Travis Scott: Nike Air Max 270 React
Travis Scott gives us a peek into what he’s doing to keep his creative mind busy during the coronavirus outbreak. La Flame brings out the MPC to craft a few spacey beats from scratch but teases fans with an upcoming Cactus Jack x Nike Air Max 270 collab, which features the signature swoosh backward.
Saweetie: Vans “Old Skool”
Saweetie is giving us all of the skater chick vibes. The Bay Area rapper laces up a pair of black Vans and camo pants to ride down the streets of Los Angeles on her azure Hello Kitty-themed deck.
Swae Lee: Air Jordan 1 Low
Are gas stations the new spot to get your ‘fit pics off? We’ve seen countless celebs posing in front of their exotic whips, and Swae Lee is the latest. The Rae Sremmurd star rocks a more casual design of the vintage Jordan 1 featuring a softer magenta inner-sole in front of his pearly white Tesla SUV.
Moneybagg Yo: Dior SS20 Sneakers
Moneybagg Yo got his hands on a pair of the pink-splashed Dior sneakers before their official release. If you recall, Lil Durk rocked the same fuschia pair a few weeks prior.
Offset: Nike Air Yeezy 1 “Zen Grey”
Offset pays homage to Kanye West with a classic Yeezy, which happened to be his first design for Nike. More than a decade after its original release, the aerated sneaker holds a special place in the West design history books and is worth around $4,000 on the open market.
Lil Mosey: Gucci Flashtrek Low-Top Sneaker
With Lil Mosey making an appearance on Complex’s latest “Sneaker Shopping” episode, the Seattle rapper knew he had to bring some serious footwork to Manhattan’s Stadium Goods store before browsing the shelves. Mosey went with the rugged Gucci caramel Flashtrek sneakers that look more in the mold of a boot.
Lil Tecca: Nike Air Force 1
Lil Tecca takes a break from playing Call of Duty for his daily mirror selfies. With the silky maroon Louis Vuitton pants doing all of the talking, the rapper opts to keep it clean by dressing up with the classic Nike Air Force 1 in his bedroom.
Fabolous: Air Jordan 3 “Kobe Bryant” PE
Fabolous honors the late Kobe Bryant by breaking out a pair of the super-rare Laker-colored Air Jordan 3’s. The purple and gold limited-edition kicks never saw an official release, as a select amount was distributed to friends and family in 2002 when Bryant was the hottest sneaker free agent on the market.
Lil Baby: Air Jordan 3 “Black Cement”
Lil Baby teased his forthcoming Lamborghini Boys project with a shot from what looks to be the set to a possible video shoot featuring a few Lambos from his fleet of whips. The ATL star keeps his footwork on point as well with the sleek Black Cement 3’s to complete his midnight outfit.
