Go-to sneakers: Raf Simons Stan Smith

When A$AP Rocky burst onto the scene in 2011 with the music video for “Purple Swag,” one of the lasting images was a close-up shot of the A$AP frontman wearing a pair of Jeremy Scott Wings adidas while riding down a Harlem street sitting on the handlebars of a bike. Since that moment, Rocky has transformed to a fashion icon, gracing the pages of notable fashion magazines and becoming a fixture at fashion shows across the globe but he still says those kicks are his favorite of all-time. More recently, however, Rocky has hopped on another go-to adidas model, the Raf Simons Stan Smith. For a guy who stays swagged out every chance he gets, the luxe rework of the classic silhouette is a perfect fit…or, as he spit it, “Always been a stand-up guy, I’d rather stand out. Raf Simons, Stan Smith edition with my bands out.”
