No word on the location but King Bey put on her construction hat, green cargo jacket and black leather pants paired with her signature Isabel Marant sneakers and went to work. She posted the photos on her Tumblr saying, “Back to work.” By now, we all know that Beyoncé is obsessed with Isabel Marants Wedge Sneakers! She first showed her obsession in her “Love On Top” visual! PMK Customs, a custom sneaker company (who also made Jay-Z’s Air Jordan 1 “Brooklyn Zoo” sneakers) made a custom pair of Isabel Marants Wedge Sneakers called, “King Bey” for Beyoncé. Check the original post here!

Watch My Kicks: Chad Johnson Rocks Adidas Originals By Jeremy Scott Street Ball Shoes

chadjohnson1

Former NFL player and reality star Chad Johnson also known as Ocho Cinco was spotted in Miami smoking a cigar. His footwear of choice was Adidas Originals By Jeremy Scott Street Ball Shoes. According to the brand’s site, “The adidas Originals Street Ball shoes by Jeremy Scott use faux tiger fur for the collar and vamp, an iridescent embossed metallic for the toe cap and mud guard, a yellow mesh tongue with rubber drops, and a golden Trefoil badge. For added pop, the designer works in translucent 3-Stripes in orange TPU with cutouts revealing a zebra-print underlay and blue rubber straps on back.” It is my opinion to say that these sneakers are dope. What is your opinion?

asap_rocky6_gq_25feb13_pr_b_426x639

On being in the streets when he was younger but didn’t want to run the streets forever, so he started doing more positive things:

 “I realized that the streets were my reality, and I wanted to make another home, so I started doing positive things. Some people have it in them to get out, and some people are content to stay in the hood. You’d be kind of stupid to get stuck in a bad predicament your whole life, but I feel blessed because I know where I came from and everything I’ve been through.”

On his oldest brother being in the streets heavy and how he was murdered:

“He was a gang-banger, a Blood [member], and he got killed. I wanted to be like him but when he died on the streets I realized that the streets are not the place I wanted to make home,” he remembers.

On his oldest brother inspiring him to rap:

“My brother was a hip-hop fan, and when I was eight he made me rap for the first time – he was beating on the table to make a beat, I started rapping and he encouraged me to keep doing it.”
