Tracee Ellis Ross, perhaps best known for her roles on Girlfriends and Black-ish, is a long-time sneaker lover — and she just copped the Air Jordan 1 ‘Satin Shattered Backboard’.
Tracee Ellis Ross stopped by Desus & Mero to discuss being Diana Ross’ daughter, her secret greens recipe, and her sneaker game. While she doesn’t have a Nike plug, Tracee can be spotted in Air Jordan 5s, Stan Smiths, the Balenciaga Triple S, Air Max 1s, and all kinds of heat on the regular.
On Desus & Mero, Ellis Ross talked getting roasted by the Internet for wearing Acne sneakers with Velcro straps — commenters came hard with jokes like the “Civil Right 11s,” the “Senior Center 3s,” the “Granny Smiths,” and the “Old Balance” — discovering the GOAT App, and how her sneaker game gets serious when she’s dating someone.
