One of our favorite YouTube series videos is Sneaker Shopping. In it, host Joe LaPuma goes Sneaker Shopping with NBA players, NFL team owners, pop stars — whoever is making a splash. The latest to go sneaker shopping is Jimmy Butler. If you’ve never seen an episode, Complex takes these stars and drops them in a local spot to get opinions on shoes, music, competitors, and life. Some are classic, some are well edited, but all are generally interesting in some form or fashion.
This week we get Jimmy Butler, starting guard for “Your Chicaaaaaggoo Bulls!!” at legendary boutique Saint Alfred. This episode was a little awkward — why would Jimmy buy any shoes when all he has to do is dial Jordan Brand and get whatever he wants sent over? Well, he does come through in the end, copping three pairs of JB, but you can tell he is a little conflicted.
Still, the interview is one of the absolute best in the series, as Jimmy comes off honest and completely open. Check it out.
