Megan Rapinoe Goes Sneaker Shopping, Talks Post-World Cup Life In Great Interview
Wearing a pair of Nike’s that haven’t even dropped yet ("I'm taking advantage of this win! I'm taking advantage of this popularity that people are sending me stuff that's not even out!"), USWNT star Megan Rapinoe visited Stadium Goods in New York to film a “Sneaker Shopping” segment with Complex. In the show, athletes talk about their own connection with sneaker culture and fashion, as well as a wide-range of interview topics including sports, pop culture, politics and music.
On Instagram, Rapinoe called the experience “one of the coolest things post WWC for sure,” and it’s easy to see why she got such a kick out of it — Rapinoe is a sneakerhead.
Beginning with getting Jordan 11s as a kid and continuing into her relationship with WNBA legend Sue Bird (whose own shoe collection apparently rivals that of the store they’re in), Rapinoe knows her stuff.
In the end, she drops $4,399 on three different pairs of Nikes and one pair of Converse (her most expensive purchase — the Travis Scott x Air Jordan 1 for $2,650 — is a present for Bird). If you think that’s a lot, it doesn’t come close to the $18,623 that Neymar spent when he was a guest on the show. Cristiano Ronaldo spent $3,470 and Kylian Mbappé spent $1,226 (although they both only copped two pairs of shoes).
