Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson recently skated off to Miami with Complex’s Joe La Puma for the Complex’ latest installment of Sneaker Shopping at KITH. The six-time NFL Pro Bowler has always been been a huge sneaker head — and especially loves the original Air Jordan I. When he was a kid, Chad would take his McDonald’s paychecks to cash out on Js.
When asked about playing in the new era of the NFL, Ochocinco admitted, “I wouldn’t even be able to play in the league today. There’s no way I was following these damn rules.” The 39-year-old also dished out some hate on the Steph Curry 2s, while confessing his new found love of Adidas and the NMD model.
The usually frugal former Cincinnati Bengal reflected on paying $8,000 for a pair of Nike Air Mags, before going on to spend $1,000 on new heat including Jordan 1s, a pair of Y-3s and the New Balance M997 in Kith.
