Kemba Walker Goes Sneaker Shopping With Complex

Charlotte Hornets point guard Kemba Walker is the latest guest on Complex's hit series Sneaker Shopping. Walker and host Joe La Puma hit up Social Status in Charlotte during 2019 NBA All-Star weekend to chop it up about sneakers, basketball, and more. Throughout the episode, Cardiac Kemba discusses how growing up in New York City influenced his style, wearing Air Jordan retros during his playing days at Uconn, how being signed to Jordan Brand is a "dream come true," and the "Cherry" Air Jordan 12 being his favorite sneaker. "I always liked [Air Jordan] 12s. The 'Cherry' 12 is my all-time favorite shoe. That's why I got the chain," Walker said. "Early on in my junior season we went to Maui and I played in the white and red 12s and killed it. I think that's when I really started to fall in love with that shoe. So, it's just been my favorite shoe ever since." For the full interview and to see all of the pairs that Walker walked away with, check out the episode above.
