DJ Tiësto Talks Hanging Out With Kanye West & Burning adidas Ultra Boosts


Superstar DJ Tiësto is the latest celebrity to indulge his footwear obsession on Complex’s “Sneaker Shopping” series.

Joining host Joe La Puma at Feature in Las Vegas, Tiësto runs the rule over a variety of creps, including the Raf Simons x adidas Ozweego III and adidas Originals YEEZY Boost 350 V2. Somewhat surprisingly, the internationally renowned Dutchman flags up adidas Consortium’s EQT collaboration with Berlin store Overkill as a personal favorite.

Suitably loosened up, he goes on to reveal a few entertaining anecdotes, dishing on the time he hung out with Kanye West in Saint-Tropez and why he once burned a pair of adidas Ultra Boosts.

As the world’s second highest-earning DJ (Calvin Harris is first, FYI), Tiësto can afford to splurge and winds up dropping just under $4,000 on a mix of apparel and footwear. Given he plays more than 100 shows per year and claims to never wear the same outfit twice, that should keep him going for a month or two.
