Jerry Seinfeld hosted an amazing AMA on Reddit yesterday, and the topic of his white sneaker collection came up. "It started with wanting to be Joe Namath of the 1969 New York jets, who at that time was one of the only football players to wear white shoes," Seinfeld said. "And I wanted to be like him, so I always wore white sneakers. Also, Bill Cosby on I SPY always wore white sneakers. And they were my fashion icons." [Reddit]
