J. Cole’s 10 Favorite Sneakers
If you caught yesterday’s feature of Hawaii Mike’s 25 Favorite Sneakers (in his apartment), you would’ve laid your eyes on some of the rarest, most niche-friendly sneakers ever created. In the sneaker game diversity is always appreciated, but that isn’t saying that you can’t build a passion for sneakers by loving only the classics. Hip-hop artist J. Cole is one celebri-sneakerhead that we’ve been following for some time and you might’ve noticed by now that he doesn’t stray too far from tried and true favorites, like the Air Jordan XI ‘Bred’, Nike Air Foamposite One in Royal, and even the Reebok Question. Check out some of J. Cole’s 10 Favorite Sneakers below and head to Complex to round out the entire list.
we all kno those are iversons but they are ugly, but j coles rap game is crazy and thats all that matters!!
If you asked me this is a perfect example of a true sneaker fan, my man picked sneakers he like because of the kicks themselves and not because of the hype #antihypebeast Cole World!!!!!
We all know wale is a better artist and a better sneaker head than j cole anyday!!!!!! besides the jordans were the only good shoes!! I LOVE ROCK AND ROLL BABY!!!!
^your fucking stupid and oviously must listen to lil wayne, fucking idiot ass people dont understand shit
^^^^^ I AGREE WIT THIS DUDE. MOSTLY ANYONE CAN BUY OR HAS SOME HOT KICKS THESE DAYS BUT JUST BECAUSE YOU HAVE THEM DOESN'T MEAN YOU KNOW HOW TO ROCK THEM. YOU CAN HAVE ON THE SAME SNEAKERS THAT EVERYONE ELSE HAS BUT MOST PEOPLE DON'T HAVE THEIR OWN INDIVIDUAL STYLE. SHEEP
Cole's being a little hard on himself in the complex artice. chill man, u know enough about kicks to be up on jordans, foams and the like.
Actually, during an interview with FMF, he didn't even know what numbered Jordans he had on his feet. He said something "you gotta ask Wale about that haha" or something. He appreciates kicks, but he's far from a sneakerhead in terms of knowledge/history. What was he wearing? The Air Jordan XI.
appreciating sneakers and being a sneakerhead arent too far from each other. and he knew enought to put the list together, didnt he? you seem like someone that's dick gets hard from correcting people. i can have my opinions
I don't understand why people get so defensive about celebrities. Nobody is knocking his sneakers or denying that he has 'heat'. But c'mon, dude didn't even know what the AJ3s were. The fact is, the extent of his sneaker knowledge comes from 'what's hot'. He doesn't care when they released, who designed them, why they're so significant. He buys them because they're what's "in". Those are his words. You can have your opinion - i'll settle with facts.
and the second part of my last reply to you still holds true im just happy to give j. cole credit for rocking heat, more than i can say for a lot of people
Chill out man, your entitled to your opinions. But no need to get all butthurt. I can feel what John was saying about how J Cole didn't know what was on his feet, and needed an explanation. I dont feel like John was trying to be a know it all about it. It's one thing to admire a sneaker, and that's good, but the difference is the knowledge of what you got in your stash is what makes you a true sneaker enthusiast. It's like being a gearhead. If you like a car, that's cool. But if you don't know the specs of it, then the car heads will look at you like you haven't did your homework. That's not trying to be all snobbish about it either though, that's just the way it goes. We were all clueless at one point. But knowledge is part of the game.
I made a mistake before - he didn't know what the Air Jordan III was, and he was wearing them on his feet at the time he said it. He even struggled with identifying the XIs. If you don't know what the Air Jordan III is, you're not a sneakerhead. Period. Buying and wearing whatever's hot (which is what he himself says he does) doesn't make you a sneakerhead, because it encompasses more than that. Not trying to convince anyone that he is or isn't a sneakerhead, but he himself implies that he isn't.
Reeboks, Iversons, who gives a ****.. there still hideous and i would never even think about letting them touch my feet. call me what you want but thats just my opinion. *KanyeShrug*
Questions are THE best Reebok shoe EVER, just like the Grant Hills are the BEST FILA's EVER, questions didn't matter blue tips, red tips, or the all black joints they were dope. Were not talking bout Reebok classics these are CLASSIC REEBOKS LOL
why are u even on here and dont know that those are The Questions.. smh.. but those bred 11's .. i hope they release next december seeing that the past 2 yrs and this one we been blessed to have the XI's ... im only hoping..
If you actually READ the story he says he isn't a real sneakerhead. He included a couple of shoes that he admits aren't the best, but they mean something to him. Anyway with that said the Bred XI's are the most beautiful Jordan's ever made, some might disagree, but I don't. Which is why I own 3 pairs. lol
fuck the ball hogger iverson playing in the turkey lol. What's mind boggling is there no kobe's when iverson is on the list. J cole must have garbage taste just like all you fags.
u must know about ball hoggers since u have the biggest one in ur name. and for ur info I would pic Iversons over kobes ANYDAY!!!! kobes shoes are horrendous!!!! I think ur the one with the garbage taste
