Everybody would agree that D.C. artist Wale possesses one of, if not the best sneaker collections in the hip hop community. Not only does he sport an abundance of the most anticipated releases, he rocks them well in advance of their release dates. Does he own the best sneaker collection in D.C.? Not in Jarrett Jack’s eyes. We recently caught up with the D.C. native and New Orleans Hornets point guard at the Josh Howard Charity All-Star game in Dallas. In addition to giving us the five sneakers in his current rotation (stay tuned), the six-year NBA veteran talked about Washington D.C.’s sneaker scene and his uncontrollable fetish for sneakers. Also, Jack touched on how Wale obtains the majority of his sneakers early and how Wale “can’t compete” with him in regards to sneaker collections. Do you believe Jarrett Jack’s sneaker collection is as good as he says it is?

On his sneaker fetish and Washington DC’s sneaker culture:

“I own about 400-500 pairs of sneakers. I have a problem. Some dudes like jewelry, some dudes like cars, some dudes like whatever. I like sneakers. It’s always been that way ever since I was little. Being from DC, it’s three things you can count on: dudes that want to crack jokes, a bunch of basketball players and fresh sneakers. Everybody wants fresh sneakers. Everybody. You see Kevin Durant in his new sneakers (at the Josh Howard charity All-Star event). You always see Wale in some new sneakers. That’s our M.O.”

On how Wale obtains exclusive sneakers early:

“I’m going to tell you how Wale gets all of the exclusives early. He wears size 9. That’s the sample size. He’s rapping and doing his thing right now. Shoutout to Wale; he got his album out right now. Most of us wear 12s and 13s. Wale wears sample shoes. Those are 9s. You don’t know too many grown men that wear 9s. I’m not trying to be funny. But yeah, my man gets some exclusive stuff. But he can’t compete with me. He knows that.”

    I have learned quite a few important things through your post.

    I will also like to express that there will be a situation
    in which you will have a loan and don’t need a cosigner such as a U.S. Student Support Loan. However, if you are getting that loan through a common loan provider then you need to be ready to have a co-signer ready to enable you to. The lenders will certainly base their own decision on the few components but the main one will be your credit standing. There are some loan merchants that will likewise look at your work history and come to a decision based on this but in most cases it will hinge on your report.
