Wale has debuted plenty of sneakers before, this one perhaps making more sense than most thanks to his and Kevin Durant’s geographic connection. Pictured is Wale showing off his pair of the Nike KD V ‘DMV’, one of the first few colorways that should hit for the silhouette following the NIKE iD debut. The pair mixes in plenty of details paying tribute to the state of Maryland as well as the microcosm community of Washington DC within said state. Click through for the full shot of Wale and let us know if you’re feeling the Nike KD V ‘DMV’ yet.

Wale in Unreleased Nike Zoom KD IV

Wale gets his sneakers early, you know this already. But the MMG affiliated rapper has a special connection with one Kevin Durant, perhaps affording him even more of a jump on the rest of us when it comes to the Nike Zoom KD releases. That connection would be a regional one, both men are Washington DC natives and Kevin Durant has even popped up on Wale’s mixtapes from time to time. The connection is flexed here as Wale shows off a super bright yellow and blue pair of the Nike Zoom KD IV that hasn’t hit retail as of yet (although there’s still a possibility of that so don’t give up hope). Click through with us to check out the pair and let us know if you’re hoping to pick them up in the future.

Who would have thought that Wale would be the guy to show off a new Foamposite design before anyone else? Just about everyone in the world. The latest thing Mr. Folarin is putting on display is quite a doozy, a Nike Flightposite hybrid of sorts that gets an air bag on bottom, a model we previously showed you via catalog scan that’s known as the Nike I-95 Posite Max. Interestingly enough this pair also features some ACG branding on the tongue, a little detail that sort of pushes them a bit more towards the Goadome ACG Boot that Wale rapped about on that mixtape smash “Nike Boots”. Click through for this latest look at the Nike I-95 Posite Max and tell us what you think in the comments below.

It seems that with each passing day the celebrity set becomes more and more infatuated with the world of sneakers. Being a subculture and all a little bit of backlash is to be expected, with a handful of folks taking the opportunity to lampoon those they’ve deemed as ‘not real sneakerheads’ once the images hit the internet. It’s safe to say Wale is not the right dude to do that with. One of his Instagram followers recently tried to put the MMG rapper on blast for hopping on the sneaker bandwagon once he found fame, to which Wale responded with a series of classic shots from way back proving he’s been in this thing for a minute. OG Nike Air Foamposite One’s, Nike SB Dunk Low ‘Tiffany’s, Nike SB Dunk High ‘Lucky’s, and more were spotted in the vintage shots, proving indeed that Wale has been doing this for a while. Click through for the photos and let us know if Wale has your respect as far as his depth and longevity in this whole thing.
