See Pete Davidson Wearing Some of the Most Popular Sneakers Through the Years

Pete Davidson is most known for being a regular on “Saturday Night Live” as well as appearances on MTV’s “Wild N’ Out.” And the comedian boasts a style that’s as loud as his personality.

Davidson’s clothes are always full of color, have lots of prints and even raunchy quotes printed across them. But the entertainer’s sneaker game is what catches people’s attention. His footwear typically features bright colors and graphics.

Often his choice of sneaker isn’t cohesive with his choice of clothing, but that’s what makes it his signature look. Davidson’s sneaker collection has a broad range of brands from Kanye West’s Yeezy line to Air Jordans, Vans and more.

Here, a look at some of his standout sneaker moments.

In 2016, Davidson participated in “The Comedy Central Roast of Rob Lowe.” The comedian word a tailored navy blue suit with the highly sought after Nike Mags. This sneaker is a replica of the high-tech footwear that Michael J. Fox’s Marty McFly wore in “Back to the Future Part II.” The Mags feature an “adaptive fit,” where the shoe will tighten itself instead of having to do it manually with shoelaces. They can resell for over $85,000. Davidson joined the likes of Chris Brown, Rick Ross and Fabolous with owning a pair of the coveted sneakers.

Davidson’s sneaker collection ranges from basketball court shoes, simple lifestyle sneakers and intricately designed rare footwear. He’s becoming more known for making transformative appearances in dressy attire paired with classic Air Jordans and other coveted streetwear-favorite sneakers. In fact, he appeared on the 2015 “Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber” in “Just Don” Air Jordan 2 Royal Blues and wore Jordan 4 “Oreo” Retros to the 2015 Emmys.

Still, you won’t catch the standup star wearing his rarest sneakers in his collection on a typical day in the streets. For casual everyday wear, the “SNL” star usually wears more accessible style. Davidson has been spotted in well-worn Vans and Converse sneakers or a classic white Reebok with gum soles while shopping or on coffee runs.
