One of the realest sneakerhead celebs hooks up with one of the realest in sneaker customs in this Celebrity Feet feature – Wale in the Nike LeBron 9 ‘Flamingo’ by Mache Customs. Wale’s got a reputation for wearing Nikes that aren’t due out in months (or at all), but this time he connects with Mache for one of his best custom creations, which features the LeBron 9 transformed into the confetti-splattered ‘Flamingo’ that we first saw with the LeBron 8 V/2 Low. Are these customs hotter than the released version, or perhaps the Mid sample that Jason Petrie gave us a peek at?
FCUK YOU TOO Muthafackanikkah!!! Get yourself an education....even just up to high school would learn good manners and right conduct.
Wale must have spent a small fortune just on sneakers. If I had it like that, I would probably rock em a few times a give them to someone less fortunate. The shoes are dope tho
Since this is a sneaker site, how about we just concentrate on the sneaks instead of hating on who's wearing them and bickering like little girls?
those shits r tough ode wale is a sneakerhead those r a most likely buyin those of course i have too
Wordplay plus fresh feet, Wale represents the DMV well. Wale been doing this sneaker thing years before he was signed, he just stepped up from the colorful Nike Dunks. The dude is a sneakerhead, let him live
Why i gotta see this guy posing for pics every day i check on SN? Im not homosexual... is he? If it were a girl, considering most of us(95%) are guys... that would be of some interest to me. But nah, i get no satisfaction from seeing a pic of a dude every day. Sorry SN, its a 'no' from me.
Those shoes are off the hook! Nice kicks! Don't know anything about your music, don't care. Nice kicks!
Wale and Mache are two people who deserve respect but somehow get hate. I think its fitting Wale got a pair for him and those 9's were DOPE!
Wale... can u please lace up yo kicks fa once... or if ur gonna have them unlaced, at least lace them up tight so it doesnt look like u jus came frum runnin away frum a robbery
plenty of rappers spend wild bread on LV n gucci shoes that son wale's lebron n non og jordan collection...
Fat Joe is undisputed sneaker champ in hip hop... and SN neva show dudes like curren$y or smoke dza or da game shoe game either... its alwayz either wale, stalley, jay-z or yeezy consistantly
calling a man short does not constitute as judging a mans body nor does it constitute as being gay, however riding another mans dick sticking up for him because someone said wale is short like your doing now constitutes as being real gay...... imjustsaying
You're right but I find it strange when guys call another too fat, too skinny, or too whatever. But if that's your steez, go ahead. I look a certain way for women not men, same with Wale, I guess lol!! It sounds suspect when a guy is like damn that dude is soooo tall or that dude is sooo buff ya know?
