Detroit Pistons star Blake Griffin drops more than $1,800 on two pairs of Nikes in a new episode of "Sneaker Shopping," the web series from Complex Media that sees stars shopping for new kicks and telling stories about their love of footwear. 

In the episode posted Monday, Griffin and host Joe La Puma hit Nojo Kicks, on Library Street in Downtown Detroit. Griffin tells La Puma stories about his favorite sneakers, including Air Jordan 11s and 12s, as well as stories about hanging out with Michael Jordan himself.

Griffin admits that being a sneaker collector can be overwhelming in today's marketplace. "It's hard to keep up with everything that's coming out," he says.  

When it comes time to hit the shelves, Griffin picks out a $900 pair of Travis Scott branded Air Force 1s, retail price $900, and a pair of Off White Nike Blazers which set him back $850. Total price, after tax: $1,855.

It's not the first time "Sneaker Shopping" has visited the Motor City. In 2017, Eminem and La Puma linked up at Burn Rubber in Royal Oak, and Em dropped $600 on five pairs of sneakers

New episodes of "Sneaker Shopping" post weekly on Mondays.
