Talk yo shit, LaLa! True sneakerhead LaLa Anthony checks in with Complex and host Joe La Puma‘s “Sneaker Stories” from her family’s home in Buckhead, Atlanta where she flexes an amazing line up of sneakers.
In the exchange, the Brooklyn-born actress and entrepreneur lets it to be known she’s more into sneakers than her husband, NBA player Carmelo Anthony.
Describing herself as a Tomboy from a young age, LaLa explained she’s always loved sneakers and would sometimes skip school for hot Jordan drops. Responding to critics who claim her collection is the product of her husband’s connections, she pushed back, “I got all of those on my own. I got my own connections!”
Pointing out that Kim Kardashian is her best friend, she noted, “That’s the Yeezy connect right there. We get what we need to get.”
Running through her current rotation, Anthony flexed a pair of Nike and Ben & Jerry SB Dunk Low Chunky Dunky sneakers, Nike and Grateful Dead SB Dunk Low Yellow Bear and the very coveted Air Jordan Dior silhouette in both Hi and Low versions.
When asked if she has a sneaker that hasn’t aged well. Anthony conceded that Nike’s wedge sneakers were the wave for a period of time, but they’ve since been relegated to the back of the closet.
What’s her all time favorite shoe? Her Jordan 11 Bred.
