Ahead of his impending title fight against Daniel Jacobs, WBA and WBC middleweight champion Canelo Alvarez hit Stadium Goods in New York City to do a little sneaker shopping with Joe La Puma. Unlike many guests who seemingly feel a pressing need to prove their sneaker bona fides, the champ readily admits that he didn’t pay too much attention to sneakers as a kid and mostly just wore K-Swiss, as his early adolescence was consumed by training. He goes on to discuss how he puts function over fashion when it comes to most of his footwear selections — he prefers to run in Sauconys — and how he appreciates Kobe Bryant‘s Nike Kobe 9 Elite for its boxing boot-esque shape. After mentioning his love for Louis Vuitton and the Balenciaga Speed Trainer, Alvarez then proceeds to put down almost $20,000 on a Supreme/Louis Vuitton hoodie and several pairs of shoes, displaying an affinity for the Nike Air Max 90 in particular. For all that and more from the champ, check out the latest episode of Sneaker Shopping directly below.
