My 5 // Pi’erre Bourne’s Sneaker Rotation

Lead image by Levi Thompson

Pi’erre Bourne is on a roll. Coming out of Columbia, South Carolina boasting his signature “Yo Pi’erre, you wanna come out here?” tag, many hip-hop consumers can’t help but familiarize themselves with the young “Magnolia” producer. While Pi’erre remains dialed in to his craft, he is already thinking about his future, with plans to someday make an introduction into the sneaker world.

“I want to design my own Nikes,” says Bourne. “I’m into designing, you know. I want to have my own Pi’erre 1s, Pi’erre 2s, Pi’erre 3s. It’s definitely been thought of.”

While Bourne is pretty close knit with his frequent collaborator, Playboi Carti, it’s refreshing to hear that he has a creative vision of his own.

“Carti just signed to adidas and you know, I would work with them, but I’m a Nike head. I don’t wanna fuck up a potential, future relationship with Nike. So that’s the next thing for me — I made it with the music, so now it’s time to get that Nike check.”

Linking up with Pi’erre and Young Nudy in Texas, we managed to get some insight on which kicks Bourne keeps on deck for the latest My 5.

2001 Air Jordan 11 “Playoff”

Pi’erre Bourne: Damn, my Bred 11s were the OGs and the sole fell off the first day of tour so I never got to wear them. They was from like 2001 and if I come across them again I’ll get ’em. That was some rare shit, you know? You don’t just come across some shoes from 2001 that are fresh and never worn. I need all the heat ’cause on the road everybody is taking pictures of us so I gotta be on point.

Nike Air Pennys

Pi’erre Bourne:  When I was in high school, I started getting Foams and Pennys, cause everybody was wearing Jordans and fake Jordans. You couldn’t really tell whose shoes were real so I went and got some shoes that nobody had. All the Penny 1s, 2s, and 3s? I had ’em in high school and I got ’em on in my yearbook on the cover. So, I’ve been into shoes and shit.

I lost a lot of them in storage in Atlanta. Man, I had all the Pennys. Like, I had all of them. I had the Penny 1s and 2s, I had all that. While everyone was going crazy over Foams, they didn’t even know about Penny Hardaway. So thats why I said I’m just gonna get the Pennys instead of the Foams ’cause they started making weird colors.

Nike Air More Uptempo

Nike Air More Uptempo

Pi’erre Bourne: I just bought the Uptempos in white with the black Air. I didn’t get the Supreme ones. I also just bought the ‘Copper’ Foamposites because they came out when I was in high school and I couldn’t get them then so I bought them. Whatever I couldn’t get when I was a kid? I’m gonna get that shit.

Nike Air Trainer SC High “Atlanta Olympics”

Pi’erre Bourne: Carti’s into all the high end stuff, but I’m not on that. Like when I was in high school my uncle was into it so I knew about it. He gave me a Prada hoody, Dolce & Gabbana stuff, he’s from New York so he’s from the fashion capitol of the world. I used to get all my sauce from there. Go up there, go to the city, see what everybody’s wearing and bring it back down south.

Air Jordan 4s

Pi’erre Bourne: My real name is Jordan so I’ve fucked with Jordans since I was a baby. When I was little I thought it was actually my name on the shoe so I thought that was my shoe. As you get older you know, you realize that ain’t true. [Laughs] I was definitely a baby when I got my first pair of Jordans, so I don’t know which ones they were. But in school? I had the all-black 10s with the white Jumpman on the back. Nobody else in middle school had those.

Alife and Starcow Join adidas Consortium Sneaker Exchange

The information age has changed much around us. It’s altered not only how we consume information, but how we receive it. But in years past things were slower, we talked in person more, and the way we orbited around sneaker culture was vastly simplified.

This is the premise behind the latest installment of the adidas Consortium Sneaker Exchange, which features two sneaker boutiques that play pivotal roles in modern sneaker culture: New York’s Alife and Parisian-based Starcow. The later opening just before the turn of the century in 1999, and Starcow shortly after in 2001, both institutions represent a time when boutiques were a meeting and breeding ground for sneakers, culture, art and style.

The exchange program extends to the adidas Gazelle and Stan Smith, both featuring base shades in grey and off-white with subtle patriotic nods courtesy of red and blue that both pay tribute to the US “Stars and Stripes” and the French “Tricolore.”

Give the Alife x Starcow x adidas Sneaker Exchange collection a closer look below. Expect a pre-release on July 20 exclusively at Alife and Starcow, with a global Consortium drop following shortly after on July 29.

Rick Owens’ DRKSHDW Sneaker Undergoes Knit Sock Update

Over the course of the year, Rick Owens has seen his contemporary DRKSHDW sneaker rejuvenated. The fashion staple is again trending in street culture, thanks largely to individual cases — the most notable one being Playboi Carti referencing and wearing the shoe in the video for his smash hit “Magnolia.”

Striking while the iron is hot, Owens updates the shoe with knit sock construction lightening the bulky shoe with a lengthly almost knee-high sock knitted to perfection. The predominately black upper is offset by a white toe and matching midsole.

Of course, many will assert that this is an answer to Balenciaga’s Speed Trainer, which it very well may be. Yet Owen’s DRKSHDW came first, so any new variations shouldn’t bear the burden of other designer shoes that came after.

What are your thoughts on the Rick Owens DRKSHDW Knit Sock? Take a closer look below and grab a pair now at Wrong Weather.

NikeLab has joined forces with Japanese fleece specialist Loopwheeler to create a special-edition Air Force 1 Ultraforce and Sock Dart, both featuring textile uppers made with loop wheel knitting machines. Moreover, the material is finished in hand-dyed indigo, requiring an inventive process that uses two layers of fabric, one featuring dark indigo-dyed cotton on the toe and midsole of the Air Force 1, and on the toe and vamp of the Sock Dart. The other is indigo-dyed heathered white cotton, seen on the quarter panel of the Air Force 1 and the heel and tongue of the Sock Dart. Both pairs are lined with heathered cotton for softness.
Rounding out the details are a debossed Loopwheeler logo on the tongue loops of the Air Force 1 and Sock Dart. Both come with a cotton drawstring bag printed with Loopwheeler and Nike logos. 

Look for the kicks to be available July 16th at nike.com/nikelab and NikeLab MA5 in Tokyo, and Loopwheeler stores in Tokyo, Osaka and Fukuoka.

Jimmy Butler Has a Crazy Sneaker Room in His Chicago Home

Jimmy Butler, after rising through the high school ranks in Houston, Texas, then attending Marquette University after a short stint at a Texas junior college, quickly turned himself into one of the NBA’s most improved players. Bulter soon became an All-Star, and the face of the Chicago Bulls team that drafted him with the 30th overall pick in the 2011 draft. But this off-season Butler was traded to the Minnesota Timberwolves, an upstart team where he’ll again be thrust into a primary leadership role.

This means Butler has to pack up his things and move, thus putting his six-bedroom, 10,000 square foot River North mansion in Chicago on the market. The million listing recently hit the web and exposed his massive sneaker room, which appears larger than most small apartments. It’s stuffed with Jordan Brand and Nike gems galore, with literally hundreds of sneakers lining the many shelves and floor space — all of which Jimmy will likely take with him to Minnesota.

Grab a look at Jimmy Butler’s sneaker closet below and let us know what you hope to see him lace up next year with the Timberwolves.
