Sneaker Shopping With Jesse Williams

Sneaker Shopping With Jesse Williams

It's tough to put a simple label on Jesse Williams. He's an actor. He's an activist. And he's also a sneakerhead. All of these worlds collided for the latest episode of Sneaker Shopping, where Williams and Joe La Puma met up at Kith in New York City to talk about a wide range of topics. Growing up in Chicago, people would expect Williams to have fond memories of wearing Air Jordans during Michael Jordan's heyday, but that wasn't the case. It's well-documented that violence occurred over these shoes in the '90s, and this caused Williams' parents to not buy him Air Jordans growing up. But he was a huge fan of Scottie Pippen's Nike Uptempos. In the episode, Williams also discusses the divide between new and old Adidas sneakers, in the wake of the brand's revolution with Boost technology and signing of Kanye West. To see what he purchased, watch the video above.
