Drake's mentor John Calipari appears as the guest on this week's episode of Sneaker Shopping. For the installment, the Kentucky Men's Basketball head coach met up with Joe La Puma at Oneness in Lexington, Kentucky to dish on his relationship with Drake, show off rare sneakers, and talk all things Nike.

After stepping into the store in a fresh pair of Kentucky Dunk Lows, Coach Cal dove right in to some of his rarest sneakers, including the OVO x Air Jordan 8 "Calipari" pack Drake gifted him. He revealed that the two pairs are particularly special because they boast his signature as well as Drake's. Calipari then went on to discuss his relationship with Drizzy, disclosing that he even has his own bedroom in the entertainer's mansion.

From there, Coach Cal flaunted a pair of DJ Khaled's "Grateful" Air Jordan 3s, as well as some vintage Kentucky Dunk PEs. He eventually went into detail about his appreciation for Nike and the standard of excellence the brand has set for the industry.

To hear all of this and more, press play below and watch the new episode of Sneaker Shopping with Coach John Calipari.
