Action Bronson is a connoisseur of the finer things in life—hip hop, food, wrestling, and sneakers—and he was strong opinions on everything that he cares about, whether it’s his favorite dish or pair of New Balances. He’s no stranger to sharing his views on footwear via social media, but Complex’s Joe La Puma recently hooked up with Bronson for another episode of Sneaker Shopping, this time at New York City’s KITH.
It’s no secret that Bronson loves New Balance, but he’s also been a big proponent of the adidas Ultra Boost recently and even select shoe collaborations from ASICS. But one brand that’s been mysteriously missing from his sneaker rotation is Jordan Brand, and there’s a reason behind that.
In this episode, Bronson recalls a meeting between him and Michael Jordan and how MJ rubbed him the wrong way. He’s even vowed that he won’t wear Air Jordans, even if they were given to him by one of his close friends.
