Have you ever wondered what’s the most an athlete/musician/celebrity or any other type of rich person has spent on a pair of shoes? The most I’ve ever spent was around $230 when I bought the Air Jordan 4 White Cement back in 2012. To this day that is one my favorite sneakers of all-time so I don’t regret it one bit.
Rapper Wale was recently interviewed by Footwear News and was asked what was the most he had ever spent on a pair of sneakers. His answer may surprise you. Here’s what he had to say.
Like $6,000. I wanted Kanye’s Louis Vuitton joints, the chocolate brown with a hint of fuchsia; I got those from a consignment [store]. I had to pay a grip, and they’re way too big for me because I told them to get a size 9, but a size 9 fits like an 11.5.
Damn…So not only did he have to spend six grand on a pair of shoes, but to make matters worse they didn’t even fit him. What a shame. I would never spend that much money on a pair of kicks if I didn’t know for a fact that they fit me. At least Wale learned his lesson, hopefully.
Don’t forget that the Wale x Villa x Asics Gel Lyte 3 Intercontinental Champion will be releasing on July 21st.
