The 15 Biggest Celebrity Sneaker Heads Right Now

We know that having the right connects and stacks of cash is the ultimate piece to the equation, but even with all that you have to have the knowledge and hustle to stay up. Having a sneaker closet bigger than your apartment filled with very rare drops from decades ago and damn near every highly coveted shoe the past few years has to gain a little respect. And with that being said, check out The 15 Biggest Celebrity Sneakerheads Right Now. Feature Credit: Brandon Edler (@MrBrando3)

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!

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

Will Smith

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.

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!
