Yep, Jerry Seinfeld was a sneakerhead. Alright so he probably didn’t have intricate knowledge of Nike’s release calender, but he definitely had his fair share of OG sneaker moments during the heyday of his eponymous show. During a recent Reddit AMA the man himself responded to a question about how he got into sneakers by naming off Joe Namath and Bill Cosby as his fashion icons. See the full quote after the break as well as a couple select shots of Jerry doing his thing in some ancient Nike heat.

“It started with wanting to be Joe Namath of the 1969 New York Jets, who at that time was one of the only football players to wear white shoes. And I wanted to be like him, so I always wore white sneakers. Also, Bill Cosby on I SPY always wore white sneakers. And they were my fashion icons.”

One of the funniest shows that I still watch till this day. Always try and spot Jerry with some heat on his feet.
