The 15 Biggest Celebrity Sneaker Heads Right Now

Julius "The Doctor" Erving

Fab has always been fresh, as evidenced in ’01 with the throwbacks and AF1s. And he has continued to keep the rotation strong as long as he has been in the spotlight.

Victor Cruz

The NY Giants wide receiver has been known for swapping the cleats for some ill Jordans, Nikes, and a few early pairs from his homie Ronnie Fieg. It’s no surprise Nike is about to hook him up with his own signature shoe. Peep the sneaker room, it’s lit.

CC Sabathia

Just look at his Air Jordan XI PE cleats alone and that’s certainly enough to dap him up. Being penned to Jordan Brand has its perks and dude takes it so serious he even has a humidor room for his prized collection.

Mark Wahlberg

Everyone gives Pharrell the credit for keeping it cool in his 40s but Marky Mark is still running Hollywood laced in every exclusive Nike and Jordan sneaker we struggle to get every Saturday.

Kanye West

He always had a problem with spending before he had it and even before he inked the deal with Roc-a-Fella and had that advance money, it wasn’t uncommon for Yeezy to stunt on the regular. With more signature kicks than most All-Star athletes, and with another on the way, Kanye is definitely about that life.

Wale

His sneaker game is so on point that even Jerry Seinfeld breaks out heat from his sitcom days to keep it respectable. Wale was a Nike Talk stan way before he was dropping records. The undisputed Foamposite king has been breaking sneaker debuts and even has his own ASICS collab coming very soon.

Chi McBride

Who? Check the resume. This dude is no newbie in the game. He has the limited kicks way before the sneaker blogs and IG likes. He is so connected with Mike and Jordan Brand he even hits the links in JB cleats you never knew existed.

DJ Khaled

That early Jordan plug doesn’t hurt. Khaled’s sneaker game is so strong he jumps off boats with some fresh Js on with no fucks given. Re-up.

Fat Joe

Fat Joe made showing off the sneakers as important as your whips on MTV Cribs and we all know about the often-imitated sneaker-sole lick. Joey Crack’s collection is decades deep and with his connects he has a few (hundred) pairs you won’t ever touch.

Bun B

Another veteran who has been stacking kicks for decades. Bun B is one of the most respected and nicest dudes, showing up at sneaker events to chop it up with people and always stunting the latest heat.

Pharrell

Pharrell’s style is just ill and it’s been that way for a minute since he came on the scene with the Neptunes. Setting trends and inking deals with major brands for the past decade, Skateboard P got everyone trying to be Mr. Me Too.

Kid Cudi

Cudi is another one who has been on the scene before the blogs and the celeb watch hype. Before he signed with Kanye and fam, he was just a dude hustling in NYC at the Bape Store trying to stack enough paper to keep his sneaker game strong.

Teyana Taylor

Teyana was really the one who influenced female celebs to live that chicks-in-kicks life. Her Harlem style has always been about streetwear and ill sneakers which led to her penning a deal for her own adidas signature line.

Fabolous

Fab has always been fresh, as evidenced in ’01 with the throwbacks and AF1s. And he has continued to keep the rotation strong as long as he has been in the spotlight.

Jason Sudeikis

The SNL alum is so fresh, he breaks out IIIs and XIs for late night shows and even pairs his patent leather Js with suits at award shows.

A$AP Rocky

Ever since Rocky hit the scene in 2011 with the “Pesos” video, he has always been on some different shit. His taste level was bit by just about every streetwear teenager at some point the last few years and the trendsetting led to his own Jeremy Scott x adidas collab that sold out immediately. Flacko!
