Alejandro Ingelmo has teamed up with Kenny Scharf to create a collaborative high-top sneaker in honor of the artist’s “Kolors” exhibition at Paul Kasmin Gallery. This special edition of Ingelmo’s “Josh” silhouette features a nylon canvas upper, distressed asymmetric collar, a medial zipper, and Scharf’s artwork on the lateral side of the upper. Finished with a rubber sole and leather insole, the limited edition take on the “Josh” is now available in a trio of colorways for 0 USD each via Edition01.
Who’s to say that Wale can’t show off his sneaker collection?
As this is probably only a small fraction of what the DMV artist owns, Wale takes a moment to flex for the fans by showing off just a few pairs of his favorite kicks. We spot everything from Air Max’s to Hyperposites, the Nike LeBron 9 “China” to the recently released Jordan Spiz’ike “BHM“, Nike Air Force 1 Lows, Nike KD V 5‘s, Air Jordan 5′s, Air Jordan 2′s, “Mama Bear” SB’s, Mork & Mindy SB’s, “Fighter Jet” Foamposites, Louis Vuitton “Jaspers”, and much, much more.
Much to many to name, let’s just say Wale doesn’t need to wear the same pair twice. See for yourself and let us know if you spot something “different” and be sure to keep it here at Sneaker Files for more Celebrity Sneaker Watch news.

Maison Martin Margiela releases a replica of one its classic footwear silhouettes for Spring/Summer 2013. Originally making an appearance in the 1970s, this silhouette makes use of a breathable woven upper featuring grey and brown strands of premium Italian leather. On the interior, soft leather lines the walls of the shoe while an elastic tongue renders lacing optional. All of these features rests atop a gum sole, making it a potential lightweight solution for the increasingly warm weather. The Maison Martin Margiela Woven Replica Sneaker is available now on Tres Bien’s web store.
