Trippie Redd is the latest guest on Complex’s Sneaker Shopping series, linking up at Atlanta’s A Ma Maniere to talk about where sneakers play into his look and what he likes.
Specifically, the Ohio rapper talks about wearing BAPE and Ice Cream growing up and getting called a “weirdo”, what he copped during a recent $25,000 shopping spree, and his brother putting him onto sneakers beyond Jordans.
“Where I’m from, they didn’t know nothing about [BAPE],” Trippie recalls. “If you wore that sh*t, you were a weirdo. My cousins [taught me about it]. I like Bathing Apes, the hard ones. The Bapestas, the Roadstas. The ones that change colors.”
After talking sneakers, Trippie went on a small shopping spree, dropping more than $8,000 on kicks and gear. Watch to see what he copped.
