Complex’s popular TV show “Sneaker Shopping” with the celebrities has its seventh season. However, WWE Superstar Roman Reigns has been featured in Sneaker Shopping’s latest episode, where he talked about his favorite sneakers and sports persons related to sneakers.

Complex’s host Joe La Puma has been hosting this series since 2011, where many celebrities, such as Jonah Hill, Kevin Hart, Migos, Odell Beckham Jr., and more, have appeared. Usually, celebrities share their stories, fashions, senses, personal tastes, etc. Talking with Roman Reigns was not any different.

The alluring part of the show was Roman talking about MLB Outfielder Ken Griffey Jr. Joe asked, “What signature athlete sneakers did you like growing up?” 

“You know I mean Jordan’s obviously everybody’s into that that’s like a cultural thing but the Griffey, and it’s weird because we were talking earlier, but like I think people need to put a lot more respect on Griffey right, he was like I don’t know maybe it’s just my age group classic shoe but yeah just the athlete.” The Merchandise replied.

However, Nike Air Griffey Max 1 “Freshwater” was one of the top choices of The Head of The Table. He thinks Griffey’s sneaker inspires him and boosts confidence during the game. “Who he was and like within the game in America I just feel like in sports, and I think his sneaker transcended too,” Roman conveyed. 

The region will defend his WWE Universal title against Daniel Bryan at WWE Fastlane on Sunday, March 21.
