You’d be hard pressed to find a rapper out there at the moment whose sneaker rotation, and indeed collection at large, tops that of Wale. The MMG rapper isn’t afraid to show it either, often showing off upcoming pairs before the public can get their hands on them or even going to lengths to defend his veteran “sneakerhead” status. His latest boast comes in the form of this quick collection shot, which shows a small portion of his stuff including far ranging styles like the adidas TS Lite AMR, the Nike Air Max Hyperposite, the Nike KD V, some older Nike SB heat, and more. Continue reading for this look at some of Wale’s stuff and tell us in the comments which sneaker you’re most surprised to see in the group.

Wale in Air Jordan XVII “Lightning”

While you wait around to see whether or not the Air Jordan IV “Lightning” materializes in 2013, Wale has that angle covered as far as Air Jordans go. The rapper recently showed up to 106 & and Park taping wearing a lightning-colored Air Jordan of old-the Air Jordan XVII from back in 2002. And given his long-standing sneakerhead status, we have the feeling that this is something that’s been sitting in his closet for a minute rather than a random Flight Club purchase for the NY trip. See all the photos of Wale with his Lightnings on right after the jump and tell us if you’ve gained some more respect for the MMG rapper with this most recent wear.

adidas recap allstar adidas Originals Celebrates All Star Weekend With Big Sean, Teyana Taylor, A$AP Rocky, & Wale

Over the last few days, adidas Originals gave new meaning to the name “All-Star Weekend” with a non-stop schedule of star-studded events held at adidas retailers in the Houston area. It started with the grand opening event of adidas Originals ¬†Collective by Footaction in the Willowbrook Mall, where Big Sean and DMC came through to meet and greet fans (did you catch our interview?). On the same night, the Eason Chen x Jeremy Scott Wings dropped at Premium Goods to a sold out crowd as well. Friday’s events kept up the pace as Teyana Taylor’s Harlem GLC released at the adidas Performance store at the Galleria Mall, with a special in-store event with Teyana herself going down later in that day. She provided a live performance of her tracks, but her G.O.O.D. Music pals Big Sean and Pusha T tore the roof off with an abridged rendition of the Grammy-nominated track “Mercy”. Teyana finished off the night sharing hugs with every single fan that stayed ’til the very end.

Continuing the adidas Originals takeover was an in-store appearance at Galleria Mall’s Shiekh Shoes by none other than the undisputed sneakerhead celeb Wale. He stuck around to hand out autographs, with special first-dibs going to those who copped the adidas ¬†Originals TSR Lite “Trophy Hunter”. Just below, NBA All-Star Dwight Howard made an appearance at the adidas Performance store. Sunday’s closing events featured A$AP Rocky making an extended appearance at the H-Town Sneaker Summit, where hundreds of fans gathered to take personal photos with the exploding star. Teyana Taylor stopped by as well, closing out four days of great events for sneakerheads, hip-hop fans, and followers of urban culture alike. Many thanks to adidas Originals for giving Sneaker News the ultimate All-Star experience!
