Sneaker Style: 8 On-Stage Picks From The 2015 BET Awards

Sunday's BET Awards were actually the most entertaining that I've witnessed in quite some time. From the hilarious antics of hosts Tracee Ellis Ross and Anthony Anderson to the shut-it-down Bad Boy 20th Anniversary reunion performance, this year's BET Awards were all that and more. Lucky for us, we spotted some pretty decent footwear from a number of performers and guests. Allow us to countdown eight of our favorite on-stage sneaker moments.

5. For Meek Mill’s performance, which brought Nicki Minaj to the stage, he opted for a pair of Puma R698 reflective men’s sneakers.


4. The Weeknd, who performed in adidas Originals Superstar sneaks in Core Black, gave one of the most memorable performances of the night — with a surprise guest, Alicia Keys — who joined the singer for a duet of the “Fifty Shades of Grey” hit, “Earned It.”

The two broke out their dance moves to the song “Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)” with Anderson donning Jordan Spizikes, while Ross chose black-and-gold Buscemi 100 MM Leather Altas high-tops.

While a number of performers brought unique and custom sneaks to the stage, Diddy took the cake in red/white Nike Cortez kicks and with this never-before-seen glimpse at a RED Yeezy Boost 350. Yea.  Numero uno.
