In the latest episode of Complex’s Sneaker Shopping series, they catch up with Action Bronson at KITH in Brooklyn to talk… well, shoes.
In the clip, the NYC rapper discusses where his love for New Balance comes from, why the Adidas Ultra Boost is the best sneaker right now, and why he doesn’t wear Jordans.
“I had Jordans growing up, there’s no doubt about it. Now-a-days, this has just become the go-to shoe for every single human being. I can’t do it,” Bronson explains. “I don’t like the quality of them. I don’t like the look of them anymore. Something changed about it. The nostalgia ain’t there for me anymore. It became more like a circus shoe in my opinion.”
“I have a personal issue with Mike,” he continued. “We didn’t hit it off when we met. He looked at me, probably, as a little sh*t. He’s seven feet and can dunk on and put his nuts on my head, so he couldn’t care less about me. We just didn’t hit it off.”
