Pete Wentz of Fall Out Boy is the next A-lister to go Sneaker Shopping. During the episode shot at Stadium Goods in New York City, the superstar bassist relayed his thoughts on his first signature shoe with SUPRA, how the KAWS x Air Jordan 4s look weird on his feet, and how the adidas YEEZY Powerphase are his favorite shoes at the moment.

Wentz also expressed how when JAY-Z was the President and CEO of Def Jam Recordings back in the 2000s, the rapper and Beyoncé would go see Fall Out Boy’s “little shows” at Webster Hall. Not to mention, he relayed his utmost praise for Kanye West expressing that he’s “awesome because I think he approaches everything like a pure artist. What the culture is doing, doesn’t matter.”

All in all, the rock star racked up a generous $2,525 USD on his sneaker spending at Stadium Goods, nabbing the Virgil Abloh x Nike Air Presto, Fear of God x Vans Era 95 and Nike Air Tech Challenge 2 SP. Watch the clip above and let us know your thoughts on the episode.
