Macklemore Really Knows His Sneakers, Especially Them Js

Thrift-shopping doesn’t seem to be Macklemore’s only forte, apparently. Follow the rapper as he goes sneaker shopping and be surprised at how much he knows about his kicks.


We had previously read about how into sneakers Macklemore is (here and here), what we didn’t realize was just how much he knows about them. The rapper’s extensive sneaker knowledge came to light in Complex‘s latest episode of Sneaker Shopping, in which the Macklemore goes sneaker shopping at Seattle-based footwear boutique, Recess. In the episode, Macklemore talks Air Jordans and sneaker culture with Complex‘s Director of Content Strategy, Joe La Puma.
