On the latest episode of Sneaker Shopping, Joe La Puma is joined by LA’s Blueface. The 22-year old rapper reflects on his high school football career highlights and his favorite sneaker silhouette: Nike’s Huarache.

Despite his youth, Blueface has already experienced major success with his single “Thotiana,” which recently peaked at #8 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart. With the G-Eazy, YG & ALLBLACK collaboration, “West Coast,” under his belt, Blueface took a victory lap at Flight Club to pick up some new shoes.

Balancing his love for fast cars with a love of sneakers, Blueface admits that both passions pale in comparison to his adoration of jewelry. “The jewelry is probably [the thing] I spend the most on at one time,” he says. Still, key Nike silhouettes retain a permanent position in the rapper’s heart, including the Cortez and Air Force 1. “[the] Cortez was poppin’ at one time,” notes Blueface, making the first of several mentions for his favorite colorway: blue, naturally.

Watch the full Sneaker Shopping episode above to see Blueface pick up gems like the collaborative UNDEFEATED Huarache and Clot x Air Jordan 13 “Terracotta.”

Last time on the show, La Puma met with the Charlotte Hornets’ Kemba Walker.
