As much as we might try and resist it, the fact is that most of us mortals take sartorial inspo from famous faces. From athletes to artists, copycatting celebrities is a favorite human pastime. And there’s perhaps no wardrobe element more prone to imitation than the sneaker. Whether it’s rappers sporting friends and family edition Jordans or budget-friendly kicks approved-by-actors, shopping-by-celebrity is a wilderness of want.
Which is why we got together with resale platform and sneaker expert GOAT, to pull together the celebrity style moments that caught our eye, identify the sneakers they were wearing, and give you the opportunity to shop them. Just like that!

It’s no secret that Jonah has become an icon of subtle style over the past few years. It’s also no secret that he’s an adidas fan. In fact, the normcore devotee is said to be involved in a collab with the Three Stripes, if recent leaks are anything to go by. Below, we see him in pair of neat black Superstar Foundation sneakers, available for under $60. Hill was also spotted out in the “Raw White” Super Court, which he paired with an off-kilter two-piece and wild jacket.
While Jonah Hill might be known as the king of casual, it’s safe to say Aleali May can be considered a queen of sneakers. And what evidence do we have to back up such claim, you ask? Well, Aleali is one of only two women EVER to have designed an exclusive collab sneaker for Jordan Brand. Her affinity to all things Jordan is flaunted below — with one of May’s Instagram shots showing off the Olivia Kim x Air Jordan 4 Retro “No Cover” – from Nordstrom’s Olivia Kim’s New York-inspired pack. As well as some pretty standout orange pants, May was also spotted in the red and white Air Jordan 14 Retro “Candy Cane,” which is available at a steal.
Arguably the most original of the group when it comes to looks, A$AP is known for a style that’s far-reaching and diverse. One day he might be in a pair of flaming Chuck 70, the next we might see Flacko in the Air Jordan 1 “Banned” — which got its name from Michael Jordan’s flouting of NBA footwear rules. Jordan history aside, that footwear duo is exactly what you’ll see Rocky in below. You’re permitted to cop too if you wish.
Tyler, the Creator
Tyler is known for going against the grain musically, shrugging off the formulas his peers are using to produce something that is solely his. His visionary creativity isn’t bound to music, either, having started his own brand GOLF le FLEUR*, which happens to be involved in an ongoing partnership with Converse. Below, Tyler shows some self-appreciation, modeling the GOLF Chuck 70 in one squirrel-featuring Instagram post below. On a more dialed-down note, he was also seen in a classic black and white Nike Cortez at the French Open (swipe to spot).
Quavo is no stranger to the world of fashion. We recently spotted the Migos member in the flesh at Paris Fashion Week, occupying a seat on the front row at Virgil Abloh’s latest Louis Vuitton show. As well as showing support for Virgil, Quavo was also spotted sporting Travis Scott’s Air Force 1 Low “Cactus Jack” at a Hawks game late last year. Continuing this Air-appreciation, Quavo uploaded images of himself in the Air Jordan 7 OG “Hare” — made famous by a 1991 commercial starring Bugs Bunny and Michael Jordan.
