From the ground up

After linking with NBA’s sneaker king P.J. Tucker, this week’s episode of Complex’s Sneaker Shopping series features another star athlete, this time NFL running back Todd Gurley, for the Los Angeles Rams.

Meeting with host Joe La Puma at Flight Club in Los Angeles, the Pro Bowler goes on a spree and discusses his affinity for the Nike Air Foamposite and other styles of sneakers he admired when growing up, along with his favorite pair of Air Jordans, which might surprise you.

In addition, Gurley shares why he’s a big fan of Carmelo Anthony, how DJ Khaled inspired him to build his sneaker collection, his thoughts about the upcoming Sean Wotherspoon Nike Air Max 1/97 hybrid and more.

Check out what he ended up copping in the video above.

Now, watch a previous episode starring Michael B. Jordan talk sneaker references in ‘Black Panther.’
