Ed Sheeran is a name everybody knows and everybody has heard a song about. Whether you like his music or not, he is a constant in the music business. But what many don't know, is that Ed Sheeran is secretly a great sneaker lover. So let us show you some of his favorite shoes he has worn in the last 10 years of his career. To get the right feeling for this blog, just listen to some of his songs while reading. We have linked a small playlist for you here! So, let's get started.
2010 - Air Jordan 1 Retro White Black CDP
In 2010, Ed Sheeran was still a small light in the music sky and toured the UK with a small crew. Of course, comfortable sneakers are a must. The Air Jordan 1 Retro White Black CDP had just been released and brought the otherwise rather inconspicuous young man that certain extra style. The sneaker shines in its simple design in the colors black and white. The model is very well known and is reissued and reinterpreted by the Jordan Brand again and again. Since it is such an old model, you can hardly get it anywhere. However, our partner StockX still has something in stock for you.
2011 - adidas Campus II
In 2011 Ed Sheeran's first studio album called 'Plus' was released and this brought him his first real media attention. Long nights on stage - you need comfortable and non-slip shoes. That's where the adidas Campus II in strawberry red and white are just the right choice. The upper is made of soft real leather and smooth fake leather. The sole is made of white rubber and is a little thicker than the normal soles. Unfortunately the exact colorway is not longer available so we show you a similar option the adidas Campus in Bordeaux red, in this picture. You can find an overview of all the colorways, here >>
2012 - Air Yeezy 2 Black Solar
These sneakers were worn by Ed Sheeran on the blue carpet of the 2012 Billboard Music Awards. The Air Yeezy 2 Black Solar has a black upper and fluorescent sole. As a special detail there is a velcro strap above the lacing for tightening. Not forget to mention, the cool wave pattern on the heel that seems to protrude from the shoe. With the colour red, small accents are set to round off the design. Here you can see some pictures at our partners site StockX >>
2013 - Air Jordan 5 Bel-Air
With the Air Jordan 5 Bel-Air, you can be sure to be seen. With a purple, pink and neon green mixed sole in a cool retro look, this sneaker is a real eye-catcher. The upper is completely grey to make the colours a little bit more subtle. But the remaining colors are taken up again in the tongue and inlay. With this shoe Ed Sheeran is not afraid to appear on the red carpet. You are lucky, you can still buy it!
2014 - Air Jordan 3 Powder Blue
Did you know, blue is the complementary color of orange? I mean, these sneakers of Ed Sheeran are really great. The Air Jordan 3 Powder Blue have a light sole with Air Max technology. The upper is in an intense light blue. At the front of the toes and the heel are patches printed with a line pattern. The Air Jordan logo is embroidered on the front of the tongue. The colour is the eye-catcher here and makes the shoe something very special.
2015 - adidas Yeezy Boost 750 OG
For this piece of jewellery Ed Sheeran had to dig pretty deep into his pocket, but we think it was worth it. He rocked those shoes on Jimmy Fallon's Tonight Show. The sole has a light-coloured soft rubber and the upper made of breathable suede and is very comfortable on the foot. The light grey gives the whole shoe a luxurious look that we just have to love. If you want to buy the sneaker, then also for this style check out our partner StockX.
2016 - Air Jordan 1 Mid
In 2016 Ed Sheeran took a long break and you hardly heard from him anymore. But at the Grammys, he couldn't resist appearing and walked the red carpet with these cool kicks. With a mixture of suede and smooth leather in black, the shoe looked very noble. The light sole creates a nice contrast and is rounded off with the Air Jordan in red on the tongue. Unfortunately, we do not have exactly this model anymore, but we have this design completely in smooth leather. Take a look.
2017 - Converse All Star OX Tennis Noir
Shape of you is one of the most famous and streamed songs of all time. In the music video Ed Sheeran is wearing the Converse All Star OX Tennis Noir. It's a classic model, low cut and made of solid canvas. The sole, as well as the toe protection, have a white rubber. We have picked out a picture for you here.
2018 - adidas Yeezy Boost 700 Waverunner
You can definitely call the adidas Yeezy Boost 700 Waverunner a hyped sneaker. Ed Sheeran thought so too and bought a pair right away. The wave design already starts in the sole and comes back in the upper. The different colors and textiles make the sneaker plastic. The combination of white, grey, petrol, orange, yellow and black is very harmonious. Unfortunately, these sneakers are so popular that you can hardly get your hands on them anymore.
2019 - Reebok Instapump Fury OG Shoes
In 2019 Ed Sheeran released his no.6 collaboration and made a music video for almost every song. In one of them he wears the Reebok Instapump Fury OG Shoes in black. The special thing about these shoes is that you can pump them up and a fabric closes around the foot, making the shoe fit perfectly. This structure gives the sneaker a layer effect. We think Reebok has definitely conjured up something cool. What do you think?
2020 - adidas Yeezy Boost 700 V2 Vanta
Lastly, let's take a look at the adidas Yeezy Boost 700 V2 Vanta. Since Ed Sheeran is taking some time off again, it is not easy to find out what kind of sneakers he is wearing at the moment. But we can be sure about one shoe. The adidas Yeezy Boost 700 V2 Vanta. This one is completely in black: The sole, as well as the upper. Again, you can find the wave pattern also in the details of this shoe. It plays with different textiles, which gives a 3D effect. Check it out right here.
