While you kick back and get ready to enjoy some of this weekend's Olympic action, take a few minutes to check out our latest celebrity sneaker recap. With the Games now here, it's no surprise that a couple of "Olympic" pairs made the cut this week, particularly the Air More Uptempo worn by Rita Ora and Ace Hood. The "Miami Vice" LeBron 9 had a strong showing this past week, turning up on the feet of people like Wale, Drake and Kyra Chaos. Speaking of Wale, he also made a splash by wearing a yet-to-be-released Foamposite again. D-Wade and Victor Cruz broke out their 'Home' Oregon Air Jordan 3s at the same damn time...or at least during the same damn week. Jay-Z and Will Ferrell kept it original; Bieber and Soulja rocked Platinum Yeezys; Swizz Beatz had a Blast; and Dwight Howard may be in LA for good.
Ace Hood's full lineup of kick pics won him your vote for the 7.20.12 Sneaker Celebrity of the Week. Check out this week's selection and let us know who you think brought the heat.
