New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft isn't your typical stuffy sports owner. Unlike most owners who sit up in their luxury boxes during games and scowl the whole time, Kraft is routinely spotted doing unquestionably cool things out in the world. There was the time he hung out with Rick Ross at Russell and Danny Simmons' 15th annual Art for Life Gala. Then, there was the time he stunted at the 2014 BCS National Championship Game. And of course, who can forget the time he rocked a pair of Patriots-themed Air Force 1s at the White House?! When we grow up, we want to be 1/100th as cool as this guy.
He just got even cooler, too, by making an appearance on our latest episode of Sneaker Shopping. During a trip to Bodega in Boston, Kraft talked about his love for the AF1 sneaker, unveiled an AF1 he designed for the first time, and brought former Patriots player Jerod Mayo in to tell an excellent story about the time Kraft wore AF1s to meet President Obama. According to Mayo, Obama took one look at Kraft during the Patriots' trip to the White House following their Super Bowl win over the Seahawks in 2015 and called him "the coolest owner in sports." Sounds about right to us.
Elsewhere in the video, you'll see Kraft talking about some of the non-AF1 sneakers he likes and dropping serious cash on some choice selections. You can watch the entire Sneaker Shopping episode in the video above.
