Diddy's $500 18k Gold Sneakers

During his performance of “Last Night” at the BET Awards on Tuesday night, Diddy was blinged out as usual: diamonds in his ears, a chain around his neck – even down to his feet. The hip-hop star was rocking a pair of Upper Echelon Shoes on his feet, complete with 18K gold chain shoelaces.

And it's not the first time Diddy has worn the haute sneakers – he rocked two pairs of UES while filming videos in L.A. recently. Expect to see the $500 sneakers showing up on some other showy feet – Grandmaster Flash and Mariah Carey, who purchased a pair for LA Reid's son Aaron as a present, are also said to be fans of the brand.

According to Yung Joc, he should have no problem appealing to the younger fans on the Scream Tour 5, which starts on November 22 in Miami. After all, earlier this year he did go on tour with the man who put the outing on the map, Bow Wow.

“I feel good, feel blessed definitely,” Joc said via phone from Texas on Friday morning. Joc has been named a supporting act — along with Usher’s new group One Chance, Jibbs, Pretty Ricky, Mario and Sammie – for Scream Tour 5: Ruff & Ready, Young & Sexy. Omarion, who has been another staple of the tour over the years, will co-headline with Ne-Yo. Bow Wow, however, is not on this year’s lineup.
