While the Charlotte Hornets furiously fight for the final playoff spot in the East, their star player hit up the sneaker boutique Social Status to go shopping with Complex's Joe La Puma. Kemba Walker has been having a great season with the Hornets so far and it's well documented that he's one of the biggest sneakerheads in the league. With this in mind, it only makes sense that he would be invited to be on Complex's show "Sneaker Shopping."
During his appearance, Walker spoke about the Air Force 1 and its importance to Bronx culture. Growing up, Walker said having a pair of fresh Air Force 1's was a necessity and that it helped him get into sneakers. This love of shoes would follow him to UCONN where he played in college. Walker says he had a plug who would get him all the shoes he wanted, which made him one of the freshest players on the court.
Now, Walker is signed to Jordan Brand which he explained is great because he gets all of the shoes he wants early. While he can get anything he wants, it didn't stop him from buying over $1700 worth of shoes at Social Status.
His purchases included a pair of Air Jordan 6 "Infrared's," Air Jordan 6 "Social Status," Air Jordan 1 "Defiant Couture," and even a pair of Nike React Element 87's just to name a few.
