Wearing his current favorite sneaker, the Nike Kyrie 4 “Red Carpet,” McLaughlin tells the story of how sneakers got him into fashion, why he mostly wears NBA kicks, and what it was like when he was seeded an early pair of the atmos x Nike Air Max 1 “Elephant.”
The actor also tells La Puma that one of his style inspirations is Russell Westbrook and reveals that he’s not a huge fan of the YEEZY 500.
