'Blue jeans, Jordans. Number threes, that's important.' Big Boi, AKA General Antwan Patton or Sir Luscious Left Foot (and several other self-nominated nicknames), doled out this style advice in his song Mama Told Me and he lives by it. Being one half of Outkast and one whole of a mega popular rhymer means you get to show off your shoe swag a fair bit, on stage, in videos and on the street. Big Boi knows we're watching what's warming his twinkle toes and he makes our lives even easier by going hard on the Instagram selfies and copping new heat on the very reg. He certainly knows what he likes too, he's a Jordanhead through and through and rocks all kinds of retros; repeat offenders include the Jordan 3, 4, 5 and 7. Left Foot ain't no monogamist though, Converse have helped him celebrate his album release by creating pimped-out Chucks and One Stars, and his fondness for plush Jordan slides and spongey Crocs shows he's a real man of leisure. Enjoy the massive gallery of his sneaker and sock style above, mostly ripped off the man's awesome Instragram account (which you should be following), and watch a clip of Patton showing us through his diverse collection below.
