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.
This 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.
February is a great month for sneaker spotting, with the likes of the NBA All-Star Weekend and New York Fashion Week taking place. Below you’ll find the hottest sneakers being worn by our favorite artists, models, and public figures, as well as the chance to shop them. You can also click here to download the GOAT app.

It’s no secret that Travis Scott is a big Nike Dunk fan. In fact, his very own spin on the Nike SB Dunk Low just dropped, bringing paisley and plaid to a silhouette he’s put his stamp on for the first time. In the second Instagram image, Scott is seen donning the Dunk Low Pro SP “Chocolate,” a collab between Nike and skateboard brand Chocolate. This one is a super-limited edition piece that dropped way back in 2002, and certainly worth your attention. If it’s a little bit out of budget, though, the Jeff Staple x Dunk Low Pro SB “Black Pigeon” is a similar, cheaper alternative.
Bella was spotted out and about during New York Fashion Week earlier this month in the Off-White™ x Air Presto. The sneaker, which sticks to Virgil’s penchant for all that is deconstructed, dropped in 2018, suggesting that Bella either hadn’t had a chance to wear them yet, or she’s just very good at keeping her kicks clean. If you like to keep your brands separated, though, we’d recommend going for the more budget-friendly Nike Air Presto.
NBA All-Star Weekend took place earlier this month, bringing together both basketball and music’s biggest names. Kanye West was courtside, and though his Levi’s x Denim Tears pants were a key talking point, he also showed some self-love via the recently-released YEEZY Basketball “Quantum.” The piece gives off a similar vibe to the “Azael” that dropped in December 2019. You’ll also find that below.
Aside from her jewelry and apparel prowess, Yoon Ahn, founder of AMBUSH, is also known to have a killer sneaker rotation. Here she’s seen in the Friends and Family edition of the G-Dragon x Nike Air Force 1. Unfortunately, that one is out of reach for us normals, but you can still cop the OG collab at resale. Not only that, but there’s also a Korea exclusive edition featuring a red Swoosh available at GOAT.
Long-time adidas collaborator Pharell was spotted in a pair of Sivasdescalzo x Sobakov Boost “1982 World Cup” sneakers while enjoying studio time with Tyga earlier this month. An homage to the 1982 World Cup, the show features a warped Three Stripes on a soccer-shoe-inspired silhouette. If monochrome is more your thing, there’s also an adidas Sobakov in black and white at the site.
