 Cla##ic Rapper/Shoe Combos Ranked & Illustrated
topic by GoldRush - 12-02-2012, 12:15 PM - Boxden > Kicks @ BX (Sneakers & Clothing)




Back before every rapper out there wanted to be a sneakerhead, individual MCs were a$sociated with one particular shoe. Snoop Dogg came on the scene rocking Chucks in classic West Coast form, Ghostface k!llah proclaimed the arrival of the Wally Era, and Nelly told us all about his Air Force 1s. Four Pins ran through these rappers and more, and ranked each-apparently out of the top 2,500 rapper/shoe connections. Click through to check out the illustrations and let us know in the comments who your picks are for the other 2,495.

Let us concede this point: Let us concede that the greatest rapper-to-shoe relationship of all-time is Run DMC to the Adidas Superstar (otherwise known as the Adidas Shelltoe). That seems inarguable. The two have managed to become independently iconic in their fields, but have indirectly done so by being co-dependent to one another.
shoulda had them in there regardless

It's about what rapper is closely links with a particular sneaker. Nike never called them uptowns but New Yorkers would have you to believe that they were exclusively released in New York in he 80s and no other state in America was wearing them.
