Once again, Stadium Goods was the perfect locale for one of the more high profile episodes of Complex's online series Sneaker Shopping.
This time we see comedian extraordinaire Chris Rock give host Joe La Puma a proper explanation for why Kanye West and adidas' Yeezy Boost line – particularly the Yeezy Boost 350 V2 – is his sneaker of choice. With his sold out "Total Blackout" tour already underway, the Brooklyn-bred comic talks the importance of wearing comfortable kicks on stage.
Additionally, Rock gets a little anecdotal when recalling his first time meeting Michael Jordan as a cast member of Saturday Night Live. (Jordan hosted the season 17 opener.)
"He was the biggest star that had ever done the show," he recalled, acknowledging that the SNL cast were used to being around superstars. "It got to the point when they had to put a guard, a policeman outside Michael Jordan's dressing room for the cast."
Of course all of the aforementioned scenarios are funnier when it comes from the horse's mouth. Peep Chris Rock on the latest episode of Complex's Sneaker Shopping. Photo outtakes appear below.
