There are a few sneaker categories that we know Wale has on lock: Foamposites, LeBrons, and Air Jordan retros. His collection doesn’t end there though, as the rapper apparently does his thing in the luxury category as well. Shown here is a set that Wale recently touted including Swoosh goodies like the Nike LeBron X ‘Cork’ and the Nike Air Max 2013. Rounding out the group is the recently released Holographic Space Sneaker from Raf Simons, a red pair of the Balenciaga Arena sneakers, and the animal print Christian Louboutin Rantus Orlato. Let us know if you’re feeling Wale’s high end pairs or the sneakers featured more (Don’t forget the Air Jordan 1′s on feet) in the comments below.
You will NEVER catch me buying a pair of "high-end" fashion designer sneakers (like Balenciaga's or Loboutin's). Paying $180+ for a pair of kicks I'm going to end up wearing out is one thing; paying $500 - 1000 for it? No fuckin' way. Besides, I'm not even feeling most of those kicks. They're all ape-ing some classic sneaker, anyways, so why not buy the original? I'm good with my Retro Js and occasional pair of runners. Even if I start making a shitload of money, I don't see myself changing. But hey, to each his own...
im ready to add those corks to my rotation! those balenciagas are a favorite of mine too, but that $600 price tag is keeping me from them...
Like them all...but I'd be in bankruptcy if I paid retail for all of these. I guess it helps if Nike sends you kicks for free.
@donadamsky1 Broke ass clown $600 aint NUTHIN to a BAWSE breh!!!
@jfin3 YOU A CLOWN YOU CLOWN ASS NIGGA!
@jfin3 If he woulda stuck to making good music, he'd still be on the path to being one of the dopest in the game. But he took the road of "fashion blogger/self-photographer/asshole" instead...

@fly li The term "Hypebeast" is starting to become the new "Bling Bling" and "Winning" of this generation! I Think it's about that time we dead it, and come to terms with the fact that we're built with different taste.
@SneakerHeadsAreCorny how bout u watch sumespn fa once & he TELLS u wat size he wears... fuckin dumbass
@Lusinmader @fly li The cats who call people "hypebeasts" are really just the reverse of hypebeasts (and I DONT mean original), meaning they only like something if it ISN'T popular. By being like that, they're actually doing what the people they talk shit about are doing - liking something based on what other people think, not what they actually think about it.
