The Many Impressive Shoes of Ed Sheeran, Self-Described Sneaker Freak

We watched last night's Ed Sheeran doc. You did, too. But did you catch all those close-ups of his kicks? Our favorite loop-pedaling ginger is a bunch of things—singer, songwriter, Taylor Swift needlepoint recipient—but did you know dude's a sneakerhead, too?

For a guy who's constantly on the go, jet setting from one side of the globe to the other, he switches up his kicks with a truly mind-blowing frequency. In fact, he's pretty much never photographed wearing the same pair of shoes...quite the style statement for a guy who's allegedly not into fashion. (He recently told Billboard magazine, "I’ve just never really given a F about what people are wearing, so I don’t know why people care about what I have on.") Regardless, the people (me) do care what he has on, particularly if he's wearing a pair of VERY RARE Airs in a sold-out colorway.

I, for one, would love to know his secret. Does he travel with suitcases full of Jordans? Or does he wear 'em once, leaving a trail of Yeezys in his wake and picking up new ones as he goes? Or does he spend all his spare time trolling eBay and bidding on limited-edition Dunks? Whatever the explanation, Ed's collection is cool enough to impress even the most discerning sneakerhead out there. Also impressive? The fact that he's literally never been photographed in shoes that aren't sneakers, not even on the Grammy red carpet. His dedication is admirable.
