DJ Khaled is one of the most eccentric people in the music world. He’s a hilarious personality, and sometimes he likes to indulge in grand displays of opulence. This is especially true when it comes to his sneakers. He has a new Air Jordan 5 collab and Khaled makes sure his shoes are treated like royalty.
DJ Khaled has a shoe pillow
While attending a Miami Heat game over the weekend, Khaled decided to protect the soles of his shoes with a pillow. As you can see in the videos below, Khaled had a “We The Best” pink satin pillow. DJ Khaled wouldn’t let his shoes touch the ground, and as he told a reporter, it’s all about keeping them cool.
“I just went and asked him, ‘DJ Khaled, why the pillow?’ And he said, ‘These shoes are exclusive. They haven’t even come out yet,” said Ashley Shahahmadi of Bally Sports South. “They’re We The Best and Air Jordan so he said they can’t touch any ground because they’re a new edition and we have to keep them that way for now.”
Khaled’s pillow was making waves on social media. Some fans found this completely ridiculous, while others appreciated the lengths he goes to protect his sneakers. If you’re a sneakerhead, you know it’s hard to make sure your shoes don’t wrinkle.
Jimmy Butler reacts
Even Jimmy Butler had something to say about it. While talking about the last minutes of play, Butler said: “It was great. I have to take off my shoes, put them on my pillow like DJ Khaled did there. Needless to say, Butler was a fan of the producer’s tactics.
The DJ Khaled x Air Jordan 5 drops on November 28th, and there’s no doubt fans are looking to get their hands on it. Luckily, pairs will be available at places like Flight Club and GOAT.
