Yes Wale is big into Foamposites, but that isn’t the only footwear category that the MMG rapper is deep into. This time around he’s got the Air Jordan 3 on feet in the iconic White/Cement colorway-the same one that MJ wore during his classic 1988 Slam Dunk Contest performance. Of course the all-important back tabs are concealed here so it remains unclear whether or not Wale’s got on the ’88 version from last year. See the Terry Richardson shot of Wale hanging out with some of the fashion world’s finest in his Jordans after the break and let us know in the comments if you approve.
