The First 5 Years of 'Sneaker Shopping With Complex' at Stadium Goods

Sneaker Shopping Will Smith Martin Lawrence

Everybody loves to go sneaker shopping, but for those of us that can't drop a couple grand every time we browse the shelves, Complex created the perfect show for everyone to live vicariously through those that can. The formula is simple: pair a celebrity with a sneaker shop stocked with all the hottest releases, and watch as they pick up all the shoes and drop all the money you only wish you could. That simple formula has obviously been a winning one, as Complex's Sneaker Shopping quickly became, in their words, the "#1 Sneaker Show in the World," with each new episode racking up millions of views.

There's been plenty of memorable episodes in the history of the show, and maybe we're a bit biased, but we'd like to think that all the greatest were filmed right here at Stadium Goods. As part of our ongoing fifth anniversary celebration, we took a look back at every episode shot at 47 Howard Street, and compiled some of the most notable statistics from all 57 times host Joe La Puma discussed what each guest was feeling, and what they weren't while browsing our shelves.

Rita Ora Sneaker shopping Stadium Goods

Total Shoes Purchased: 314

In 57 episodes with 65 guests, a total of 314 sneakers were purchased. That's an average of almost 5 pick-ups per guest.


Total $$ Spent: $230,138

The celebrities dropped some serious bread on their way to buying all those sneakers. Only one of all 65 shoppers spent less than $1,000, which was the special (and objectively cutest) guest, Luna Stracci, who with the help of Halsey got to celebrate her fifth birthday in a big way in 2018.


Canleo Alvarez Sneaker Shopping Complex

Most $$ Spent By Single Guest: Canelo Álvarez - $19,822.87

Fittingly, it was professional boxer Canelo Álavarez who was the heaviest hitter when it came to dropping dollars during his Sneaker Shopping episode at Stadium Goods. He didn't bat an eye while spending nearly $20K. If you missed the episode and are curious to see what he picked up to rack up that total, check out the full episode here.


Most Sneakers Purchased By Single Guest: T.I. - 18 Pairs

Rap legend and actor T.I. certainly didn't hold back when it came to picking up some new heat on his episode, as he managed to find a whopping 18 pairs to add to his collection at a total bill of $9,525. Must be nice, right?


Fewest Sneakers Purchased: Tie - Noah Schnapp and Alicia Keys - 1 Pair Each

"Stranger Things" star Noah Schnapp and Alicia Keys both win the award for most sneaker-buying-self-restraint practiced during their episodes by being the only guests to leave the store with just one pair. For Noah, it was a case of quality over quantity, as the already-legendary Off-White x Air Jordan 1 "Chicago" was the shoe he picked up. Only one sneaker, but at a total of almost $3,000, it wasn't even close to the least money spent. We're just glad his mom didn't kill him.

As for Alicia Keys, who is one of our most recent guests, she didn't even buy the one pair for herself. She picked up the Ben & Jerry's x Nike SB Dunk Low for her husband, Swizz Beats.


Pete Davidson Sneaker Shopping Stadium Goods

Most Purchased Model: Air Jordan 1

Illustrating its ubiquitous popularity and status as one of the greatest sneakers ever, the Air Jordan 1 in all of its many colorways and constructions was the most purchased sneaker, clocking in at an impressive 48 pairs sold.


Air Jordan Wall Stadium Goods

Jumpman vs. Yeezy?

Yeezy certainly hasn't jumped over the Jumpman — at least when it came to Sneaker Shopping at Stadium Goods. A total of 125 Air Jordans were purchased versus just 15 Yeezys sold on the show.


Off-White Nike The Ten

Most Popular Collaboration: Off-White x Nike

No surprise here. It was the many Off-White x Nike models that got the most love from the guests in the collaboration department. A total of 28 pairs were purchased, with the Air Prestos being the most popular at 8 pairs picked up.


Most Viewed Episode: Billie Eilish

Almost every episode of Sneaker Shopping at Stadium Goods has clocked at least a million views, but none have been watched more than Billie Eilish's episode that released in March of 2019. The teen pop superstar's episode is currently at over 24 million views and counting. Here's to many more episodes, and many more millions of views for Complex's Sneaker Shopping here at Stadium Goods!
