Before and After: 15 Celebrities Who Dramatically Improved Their Sneaker Game

Usher

Okay, so to our knowledge, Drake has only had one serious footwear misstep. And the internet has never let him forget about it, putting him on blast for rocking fakes. But recently we found out that they weren’t fakes, but just some not so appealing customs. With that said, Drizzy has silenced (some of) the haters by getting his sneaker game shine on, scoring that elusive Air Jordan contract, and rocking straight fire these past few months.

Hulk Hogan

It’s not hard to step your sneaker game up when you’re most famous for rocking super-high yellow wrestling boots. And, outside the ring, the Hulkamaniac was always spotted in some low-key (very un-manaical) New Balance “dad shoes.” But ever since 2012’s Air Jordan Aero Flight “WWF Pack,” it’s become quite obvious that the Hulkster got that Jordan plug!

Wiz Khalifa

Listen, we’re certainly not gonna hate on somebody rocking classic Chucks. But as Wiz has come up, his style has followed suit. Sure, he still goes back to the OG Taylors, but he’s been breaking out that heat recently. Particularly the fantastic JBF Customs “Supreme F&ckery” Air Force 1s. UGH!

Mark Wahlberg

Look, we know there was a time in the 90s when Doc Marten boots and some shorts weren’t just socially acceptable, but pretty fashionable. But man, those were dark days for footwear. That said, as Mark Walhberg’s career ascended, so have his footwear choices. Nowadays, you can catch him having lunch with MJ himself, and sporting those Friends and Family releases, like the “oh-why-don’t-they-just-release” Oregon Ducks Vs. We suppose that sometimes, it’s pretty awesome to be ultra-famous.

Drake

Okay, so to our knowledge, Drake has only had one serious footwear misstep. And the internet has never let him forget about it, putting him on blast for rocking fakes. But recently we found out that they weren’t fakes, but just some not so appealing customs. With that said, Drizzy has silenced (some of) the haters by getting his sneaker game shine on, scoring that elusive Air Jordan contract, and rocking straight fire these past few months.

Soulja Boy

We know just saying Soulja Boy’s name will get people feeling some type of way. But regardless of what you think about the man himself, his kick game has evolved tremendously. From rocking some suspect Gucci kicks and letting folks get a view of some super-fake Jordans on MTV Cribs, Soulja Boy has definitely upped the ante in recent years.

Action Bronson

Okay, so we couldn’t find any hard evidence of him actually wearing them. But if you’re a fan of his music, you know Action Bronson is always rapping about the New Balance 992 (or 990) being his favorite shoe(s), noting their comfort and support while he worked long hours in the kitchen. He also did some promo work for Pro Keds a few years back. And, while we’re all about comfort, and diversifying that sneaker portfolio, Bronsalino can (and has) really stepped his sneaker game up as of late. It also helps that he’s from Queens, just like Kith-capo Ronnie Fieg. Oooh, that’s a nice plug to have!

Kim Kardashian

In what is perhaps the biggest step-up on this list, everyone’s favorite “reality” TV star Kim Kardashian has really stepped up the footwear game recently. Of course, she’s always rocked super high heels and such. But, it wasn’t until recently that she started rocking dope Jordans and, of course, them Yeezys. Don’t forget, it wasn’t that long ago that she was the face of a sketchy Sketchers campaign.

Macklemore

Sure, he’s rapped about Jordans for a while now, but Macklemore has been around long before 2013’s Grammy-winning Heist album. But, it wasn’t until recent years that he really stepped his game up. Love it or hate it, he’s even got his own neck-breaking Jordan PEs now. Credit where credit’s due.

Rihanna

Rhianna’s style seems to change weekly, so it’s no surprise that looking at photos from her career’s early days reveals some questionable footwear choices. But, nowadays, if you frequent celebrity sneaker posts you already know RiRi’s got game.

Scott Disick

Scott Disick has always had bank. But, as you know (and, you can see), money doesn’t always equate to good style. However, a few years hanging out with Yeezy and the Kardashian clan, seems to have at least helped. Lately, Lord Disick’s been on that Jordan/Yeezy wave.

Bow Wow

Back in his So So Def days, when he was known as “Lil” Bow Wow, he liked to rock a lot of basic kicks. From adidas Shell Toes to Air Force 1 Highs. All (mostly) respectable, but nothing earth shattering. But, after over a decade in the spotlight, Bow Wow has stepped it up quite a bit. Not just quality, but diversity too.

Justin Timberlake

If you’re old enough to remember, the early 2000s were a strange time for fashion. And, from that top ramen haircut to glittery dress shoes on the cover of Rolling Stone, even Mr. Suit & Tie Justin Timberlake himself wasn’t exempt. In fact, looking back, he’s got more than a few ‘fits we’re sure he’d like erased from our memories, Men In Black style. However, in recent years, JT has really stepped up his style (and sneaker) game. Now he’s got all of us sweating his excellent collection. And don’t forget about those ridiculous Legends of Summer Jordans. Those were crazy.

Nick Cannon

We know. The man formerly known as Mr. Mariah Carey is a love him or hate him kinda guy. However, if you’re looking strictly at footwear evolution, Nick Cannon has had some serious heat lately. Sure, Lugz and Chucks aren’t that bad, but Cannon has really cranked the heat up in recent years. And say what you will, but considering he just had a pair of $2 million, diamond-encrusted Tom Ford loafers commissioned…his kick game is truly on a different level.

Big Boi

Bought some fake Js on eBay by accident? Don’t trip. Even the OGs get caught slipping sometimes. Like back in 2009, when Outkast frontman Big Boi rocked fake Air Jordan VIIIs to perform at a SneakerPimps convention. Ouch. However, we will show Big some love here because, unlike some others who’ve got caught sporting fakes, Sir Lucious Left Foot bit the bullet and copped to being duped. Respect. That, and he’s steadily sported that heat ever since.

Russell Westbrook

Back in his college days, UCLA was (and still is) an adidas school. So, while he was leading his team to the Elite 8, Russ Westbrook was rocking some pretty basic adidas team sneaks. Fast forward to 2014, and your boy Westbrook is one of the flagship signature athletes for Jordan Brand, and is constantly spotted in neck-breaking PEs. We’re particularly fond of those IIIs….that’s a come up!

25 Awesome Magazine Shoots Featuring Jordans

Russell Westbrook

Jordan in shoot: Jordan 3 ‘True Blue’
Magazine: NME Magazine
Year: April 2012

Before officially becoming a member of Team Jordan in December of 2013, Drake could always be regularly seen rocking Js. This particular pic of Drake rocking the ‘True Blue’ Jordan 3s actually comes from the outtakes of his shoot with the British mag.

Eminem

Jordan in shoot: Jordan 4 ‘Fire Red’
Magazine: Sole Collector
Year: 2009 (Issue 28)

A lot of new sneakerheads might sleep on Slim Shady’s footwear collection. But slow down, because Em has crazy heat! Like the classic ‘Fire Red’ Air Jordan IVs he sported on the cover of Sole Collector’s 28th issue.

Michael Jordan

Jordan in shoot: Jordan 7 “Hare”
Magazine: GQ
Year: February 2011

We love this cover of February 2011’s GQ magazine. In it’s feature of the 25 coolest athletes of all time, MJ took the cover with a throwback shot from 1992, where he was rocking the always perfect “Hare” Air Jordan VII.

2012 Kentucky Wildcats

Jordans in shoot: Jordan 10 “Old Royal” and Jordan 13 “Flint”
Magazine: ESPN The Magaine
Year: March 2012

As evidenced by the cover of a March 2012 ESPN the Magazine issue (oh, and their National Title), the Kentucky Wildcats had a ridiculous basketball team. Just peep the footwear of Davis, Jones and MKG. Nice work, gentlemen.

Blake Griffin

Jordan in shoot: Jordan I Retro High OG “Black Toe”
Magazine: ESPN The Magazine
Year: May 2013

As a flagship Jordan Brand athlete, Blake Griffin has his pick of whatever Js he wants. For the cover of the May 2013 ESPN The Magazine BG went with a classic: the Air Jordan I “Black Toe.”

Michael Jordan

Jordan in shoot: Jordan 4 Black/Cement
Magazine: GQ
Year: March 1989

Sure, Jordans are all the rage in fashion today, but this is awesome because it shows how far back the Air Jordan line’s influence on the fashion world goes. March 1989’s GQ magazine was MJ’s first cover for the mag, and – in the feature – he was of course rocking the latest and greatest Jordan of the moment: the iconic Black/Cement Air Jordan IV.

Tinker Hatfield

Jordan in shoot: Jordan 4 “Oregon Ducks” Black
Magazine: Sole Collector
Year: 2013 (Issue 42)

We love Sole Collector’s inspiring sneaker reporting and awesome covers, and their Issue 42 feature on design legend Tinker Hatfield is no exception. Although we are a little salty about this one, because Tinker is showcasing the amazing “Oregon Ducks” Air Jordan IVs…the ones that never released to the public. Come on JB!

Usher

Jordan in shoot: Jordan 11 ‘Gold’
Magazine: Nylon
Year: July 2014

Speaking of getting salty, here is Usher Raymond just crushing your sneaker collection in these thus-far-unreleased all-gold Air Jordan XIs. Come on MAN!

Jabari Parker

Jordan in shoot: Jordan 12 “Playoffs”
Magazine: Sports Illustrated
Year: May 2012

We’ve all been watching Chicago phenom Jabari Parker’s ascendance to the NBA. And with his recent addition to Team Jordan, it’s clear JB has been too. But Parker has been rocking Js since his not-too-distance high school days. Here he is in the May 2012 issue of SI, rocking the always excellent “Playoff” Air Jordan XII.

Chris Paul

Jordan in shoot: Jordan 7 “Bordeaux”
Magazine: ESPN The Magazine
Year: February 2014

Chris Paul has more fire Air Jordans than even the most seasoned collector. But for the cover shoot of the February 2014 ESPN The Magazine, he went with our favorite Air Jordan VII, the fantastic “Bordeaux” colorway. Can’t go wrong with that!

Jay Z

Jordan in shoot: Jordan 4 “Mars Blackmon”
Magazine: XXL
Year: December 2006

This one is a bit of a throwback. Here is Jay Z in the December ’06 issue of XXL rocking the dope “Mars” Air Jordan IVs. Hova’s always got classics.

Michael Jordan

Jordan in shoot: Jordan I High Black/Red
Magazine: KICKS by SLAM
Year: August 2007

Produced by SLAM magazine, KICKS could have gone with any sneaker photo they wanted for their 10th anniversary issue. But, as it usually does for us; it always comes back to the black/red Air Jordan I. Perhaps the most important basketball shoe of all time.

Keegan Bradley

Jordan in shoot: Jordan 3 White/Black-Infrared 23
Magazine: Golf Digest
Year: July 2014

Though not an official member of Team Jordan (yet), pro golfer Keegan Bradley is MJ’s neighbor, golf buddy and “friend of the brand.” This much has been evidenced in recent months with Bradley stunting on Instagram with crazy PEs. Here he is on the cover of July 2014’s Golf Digest rocking some “Infrared 23″ IIIs.

Anthony Davis

Jordan in shoot: Jordan 10 “Old Royal”
Magazine: Sports Illustrated
Year: March 2012

One cover in March of 2012 wasn’t enough for Ant Davis, he was also caught on the cover of Sports Illustrated’s March Madness preview. And again, he was seen rocking his apparent favorite Air Jordan X, the clean ‘Old Royal’ iteration.

Carmelo Anthony

Jordan in shoot: Jordan 4 “Toro”
Magazine: SLAM
Year: November 2012

Carmelo Anthony has been spotted in Jordans in so many places it’s hard to keep track. But we were paying attention in November of 2012, when he was featured in SLAM Magazine wearing some amazing all-red Air Jordan IVs. Now, this was a full year and a half before we had a look at the Air Jordan IV “Toro,” so you can bet we were hyped.

Michael Jordan

Jordan in shoot: Jordan 13 “Playoffs”
Magazine: SLAM
Year: August 1998

MJ has too many magazine covers to count, but this one from August 1998’s SLAM Magazine stood out because of those dope “Playoff” XIIIs.

Nate Robinson

Jordans in shoot: Too many!
Magazine: ESPN The Magazine
Year: April 2013

If you’ve been paying attention in recent years, you know Nate Robinson’s got some crazy sneaker game. And back in April 2013’s issue of ESPN The Magazine, Nate’s collection was featured in detail. At the time, he said he’s got over 150 pairs of Jordans alone and, in the banner image, you best believe Nate came correct. Bin 23 Vs FTW!

Victor Cruz

Jordan in shoot: Jordan 9 “Crawfish” or “Bentley Ellis”
Magazine: Glamour
Year: February 2013

If you didn’t already know, Giants receiving stud Victor Cruz stays rocking heat. Here he is in February 2013’s issue of Glamour (yes, Glamour) Magazine rocking them Js. We’re a huge fan of the “Bentley Ellis” IX.

Michael Jordan / Spike Lee

Jordans in shoot: Jordan 3 Black/Cement and Jordan 3 White/Cement
Magazine: Various (Ad)
Year: 1988

How could we not throw in one of the most iconic sneaker ad shoots of all time? The Best on Earth? Best on Mars? Best in print, period.

Kid Cudi

Jordan in shoot: Jordan 7 “60+ Pack”
Magazine: GQ
Year: November 2009

Before rising to the upper echelons of the rap game, Drake, Wale and Kid Cudi were still being featured in countless “upcoming superstars” features like this one from November 2009’s GQ. And even if Wale’s rocking some fire, Cudi takes the footwear win here with the VIIs from the “60+ Pack.”

Michael Jordan

Jordan in shoot: Jordan 3 ‘Fire Red’
Magazine: Sports Illustrated for Kids
Year: January 1989

Okay, so it’s actually Wednesday, but you could use this one for your #ThrowbackThursday. We actually forgot that SI runs a special kids version of their publication, but our research reminded us of this awesome 1989 cover with MJ rocking the ‘Fire Red’ IIIs.

Kevin Hart

Jordan in shoot: Jordan I Black/Red (modified for comedic purposes)
Magazine: GQ
Year: May 2014

We love this one. Kevin Hart is the man…even if he isn’t as tall as most of them. Here he is in the May 2014 issue of GQ magazine goofing around in some, uh hum, modified black/red Air Jordan Is.

DJ Khaled & Ace Hood

Jordans in shoot: Jordan 3 White/Cement and Jordan 12 “Taxi”
Magazine: The Source
Year: June-July 2013

Sure, catching Khaled in some Js is a common occurrence. But we love the simple colorways featured on the cover of this June/July 2013 issue of The Source. Also, extra credit points to Ace Hood with the “Taxi” XIIs.

Michael Jordan

Jordans in shoot: Jordan 7 “Hare” and Jordan 7 “Bordeaux”
Magazine: Sports Illustrated for Kids
Year: May 1992

Another issue of SI Kids with MJ on the cover, this time in May 1992, with him rocking even more heat. Even if he’s getting dunked on by a girl with the same shoes as he’s got on, His Airness was still looking proper in those “Hare” Jordan VIIs.

Jabari Parker & James Michael Macadoo

Jordans in shoot: Jordan 11 ‘Concord’ and Jordan 3 White/Cement
Magazine: Sports Illustrated
Year: November 2013

Back in May 2012 wasn’t the only time Jabari Parker has been on the cover of SI rocking Js. Here he is again, in Novemer 2013, alongside UNC’s James Michael McAdoo, rocking some straight fire.

Drake

Jordan in shoot: Jordan 3 ‘True Blue’
Magazine: NME Magazine
Year: April 2012

Before officially becoming a member of Team Jordan in December of 2013, Drake could always be regularly seen rocking Js. This particular pic of Drake rocking the ‘True Blue’ Jordan 3s actually comes from the outtakes of his shoot with the British mag.

Kid Cudi

Jordan in shoot: Jordan 3 ‘True Blue’
Magazine: Complex
Year: August/September 2009

Featuring dope illustrations from graffiti artist AUGOR added to the shoot after the fact, Kid Cudi broke out the ‘True Blue’ Jordan IIIs as just one of his footwear selections for his cover feature with Complex Magazine back in 2009.
