Rich The Kid recently linked up with Complex’s Joe La Puma for a brand new episode of “Sneaker Shopping” at Stadium Goods in New York City, wherein the Queens-born rapper talked about all things sneakers, including his favorite shoes to skate in, the most expensive pair of sneakers he ever bought, and potentially making a skateboarding shoe with Virgil Abloh’s Off-White brand.
When it comes to the Virgil Abloh collab Rich The Kid didn’t reveal too many details but said the plan is in motion and the kicks are “on the way.”
Additionally, Rich The Kid discussed how he got into the skating game as a teenager after moving from New York City to Atlanta, how he used skating to stay out of trouble, and considered going pro before pursuing his rap career. Also in the episode, Rich The Kid talked about skateboarding with Lil Wayne, how he hustled to buy a pair of the “Bugs Bunny” Air Jordan 8s as a kid, what it was like filming a music video in the Beverly Hills Goyard store and he ranked what he loves the most out of jewelry, cars and sneakers.
When it was all said and done, Rich The Kid walked out of Stadium Goods with over $6,600 worth of merch including “Shadow,” “Satin Royal,” “Blue Suede” and “Shattered Backboard” Air Jordan 1s, “Motorsport” Air Jordan 4s, “Nothing But Net” Air Jordan 7s, “Bugs Bunny” Air Jordan 8s, the Supreme x Vans Authentic Pro and some Mechanix Original Work Gloves, which retail for $118. Of course, he also copped some infant-sized Yeezy Boosts for his kids as well.
