Canelo Alvarez boxes out a $19k Sneaker Shopping receipt

Yesterday, on the most recent episode of Sneaker Shopping, former world boxing champion Canelo Alvarez was a guest and decided to spend $19,000 on sneakers.

Last week’s episode of Complex’s Sneaker Shopping was a monumental and historic one considering that it was the episode where Future’s Sneaker Shopping record was finally broken. After all of this time we have been monitoring the record and seeing which guests came close to it, the record holder was dethroned by Juice Wrld. Despite the record torch being passed on, we will still continue monitoring the receipts of other guests to see who might break the record next. Joe La Puma’s latest guest on the show was Canelo Alvarez.

As such, we may sure to pay close attention to see if the boxing commodity comes anywhere close to Juice’s $42,032.28 price tag. Just a week after the fact, Alvarez was not that far off from the rapper’s number. In total, he spent $19,822.87. For those wondering what he bought, Canelo purchased the following during the episode: A Supreme x Louis Vuitton hoodie for $15,000, the Nike Air Max 90 “Cork” for $349, Adidas EQT Support ADV for $129 and three different colorways for the Off-White Air Max 90 that each respectively cost $1,250, $730 and $749.

In between running up a check for some drip, Canelo Alvarez took the time to answer some questions from the illustrious – now Webby Award winning – Joe La Puma. Early on, Canelo mentioned that he had to “learn about style” as he grew up because in the household growing up with his siblings, everything was about boxing. From the sounds of it, Canelo never thought about the style of his close until he made a name for himself as one of the best boxers on the planet.
