Let us take a moment to shine a light on BET’s “Colorways & Toe Boxes,” a YouTube series hosted by Mouse Jones, Rich Lopez and Brooklyn-born Alani Figueroa, who’s known for her legit appreciation for sneaker culture reflected by an eye-popping, ‘fit-filled Instagram feed.
Given sneaker culture’s propensity for anointing pretty-yet-silent “it” girls, it’s refreshing to see BET select a host who not only has opinions but absolutely knows what she’s talking about.
Launched in November 2018, the series comments on silhouettes and news stories generating buzz in sneaker culture. The series also includes guests and has a “cop or flop” segment examining recent drops.
The first season of the show included nine episodes and is currently taking a break between seasons. Unfortunately there is no firm date on when it will return. On Instagram, Figueroa commented, “we wrapped season 1 last week so we’re on a small break until further notice :(”
In the latest episode, the crew discuss their views on Adidas and Pharrell‘s Chinese New Year sneakers, Virgil Abloh‘s debut sneakers designs for Louis Vuitton and Adidas’ decision to include and all-white Boost in a Black History Month pack.
