Pop star Kris Wu is a host of The Rap of China and one of the country's most influential celebrities when it comes to streetwear and sneakers, and he joined Joe La Puma at Stadium Goods in New York City for the latest episode of Complex's Sneaker Shopping.
During the episode, Wu talks about how hip-hop culture has started to blow up in China and how he's influenced by celebrities such as Travis Scott and Drake. He also has a love for O.G. Air Jordans, and he talks about how he was able to track down a pair of Air Jordan 1s from 1985 on eBay and geeks out about the shoe's details and history. Wu explains how basketball became popular in China, due to Yao Ming's success in the NBA, and says that LeBron James and Steph Curry are current favorites in the country. He goes on to joke about how he was once scouted to be a basketball player as a teenager, but he never grew as tall as people thought he'd become and never got to play professionally. Wu also says that he's not feeling Yeezys right now, because there are too many fakes in China. He goes on to spend over $6,700 on hyped Nike and Jordan collaborations and even picks up a pair of "Galaxy" Foamposites.
