Film director, film producer, actor, Youtuber and entrepreneur! Today we are talking about none other than social media star Casey Neistat. But who is Casey Neistat and what exactly does he have to do with sneakers?
Who is Casey Neistat?
Casey Neistat is an American Youtuber who has achieved great fame through his vlogs and short videos in the cosmopolitan city of New York City. His honest, positive and motivating style continues to inspire a large audience of viewers and fans. The high quality of the videos, the city's cinematic backdrop and his manner enabled him to rise quickly on many social media platforms.
Today (2021), his YouTube channel has 12.4 million subscribers and over 3 million followers on Instagram. Now forty years old, the inactive filmmaker lives in Los Angeles with his wife and two children and is rarely seen in front of the camera.
Despite his irregular uploading of new videos, Casey Neistat is still considered by many to be an icon on YouTube and the origin of the vlogging scene.
Casey Neistat and his Sneaker Collection
Boosted board (electric longboard), New York City and black and white sunglasses! These are three characteristics that not only describe Casey very well, but also what you see 95% of the time in the videos.
But if you look closely and have an eye for sneakers, one or the other expert will surely notice some very special and beautiful shoes that the Youtuber has in his collection. The very active runner not only has streetwear sneakers in his collection, but also a large number of running shoes.
His love for sneakers was also evident when he was a guest at Joe La Puma's sneaker shopping event at Stadium Goods, where he bought almost €3,000 worth of shoes. Did you see that? It's worth it!
But now let's move on to the shoes that you regularly see in his videos. I've made a list of the sneakers that I liked the most. So, if you've ever wanted to feel like Casey Neistat, the following shoes are for you.
adidas Yeezy Boost 750 'Chocolate'
Casey is a big fan of rapper Kanye West and therefore owns a range of shoes by the fashion designer. Among other things, Casey wears the adidas Yeezy Boost 750 'Chocolate' which was released on 15 October 2016 and was the last pair of the Boost 750 series.
The shoe is still available for resale for prices between €380 and €1400 depending on the condition and size.
adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Beluga 2.0
Another Yeezy that Casey wears regularly, and calls one of the most comfortable Yeezys, is the Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Beluga 2.0.
The grey shoe with orange lettering came out on 25 November 2017 and is still available from many resellers.
adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 ‘Bred’
The last Yeezy on our list is the adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 'Bred'. The black and red sneaker is often seen in his videos.
Another striking and inspiring quality of the Youtuber is his handling of expensive things:
The functional aspect is in the foreground for him, which is why he is very robust and rough with everything. That's why you see Casey skating with this Yeezy or walking through the dirty, wet streets of New York. A fascinating but perhaps at the same time frightening sight for any hypebeast.
adidas Samba OG White/ Black & adidas Samba OG
In an interview, we learn that the entrepreneur is a big fan of the adidas Samba OG White/Black and the adidas Samba OG. Both shoes are icons for adidas and fit Casey's style.
The former hobby skater owns a lot of low sneakers, so these two adidas shoes also fit perfectly into his collection.
Nike Zoom Vaporfly 4% Ice Blue
A very big hobby of the Youtuber is running. In almost every video, you see clips of his morning jog and he also shows his knowledge and enthusiasm for the sport with his choice of running shoes.
The Nike Zoom Vaporfly 4% Ice Blue is also a pair that Casey wears for everyday wear, running and of course skating through New York City. The shoe is considered to be one of the most comfortable and is available in this colorway at StockX for around €160.
The Vaporfly range is also very famous among Nike's running shoes.
Golden Goose 'Superstar' Sneakers
In his right hand the vlog camera, in his left hand the remote control for his electric longboard and on his feet Golden Goose 'Superstar' sneakers. Anyone familiar with Italian luxury brands will recognise different Golden Goose models on Casey's feet.
The forty-year-old loves the vintage look of the shoes and is often seen in his videos. He also owns different high-tops from the company. Some of our partners sell a range of models, so feel free to check them out.
The collection of shoes is much longer and unfortunately I could only show a small selection. You can also find most of the sneakers from the Hypebeast Youtuber with our sneaker search engine. So watch his videos and compare the prices with us.
Casey Neistat is and remains a legend on YouTube. His influence on the platform has been huge, he has inspired many viewers and Youtubers and his content is still unique today.
