Go-to sneaker: Jordan I

On his latest album cover for 2014 Forest Hills Drive, Cole is rocking a pair of crisp Jordan I “Carmines” and has been spotted in various versions of the shoe that changed the sneaker world since its debut. At OVO Fest, he touched the stage in the AJ1 “Chicago,” and when he made his press run for the album, he performed on the late-night circuit in a pair of “Black/Royal” 1s. Cole is one of the more polarizing MCs in the game, but one thing hip-hop heads can’t debate is his taste in kicks.
