People are constantly snapping pics of Wahlberg wearing rare and new Jordans while he is out on the town, eating lunch, or with his kids. The producer of Entourage, Broadwalk Empire, and several of his own movies was even seen by TMZ having lunch with Michael Jordan, where Mark footed the bill. Being friends with MJ and the Jordan brand pays off because Wahlberg is always got serious heat. The man has also received several sneakers dedicated to him or Entourage, like the AJ 1 Wahlburgers gifted by Tinker Hatfield, CP 3 VII ‘Entourage PE’, and adidas TS Bounce Commander ‘Entourage PE’.  

Outlets like TMZ, Nice Kicks, Kicks on Fire, and more have caught Wahlberg rocking the latest J’s. Marky Mark has some serious grails stocked, including the AJ 4 Eminem Carhartt, AJ 12 OVO White, and AJ 5 Oregon Ducks. Recently Campless, the sneaker data specialists, was invited to Mark’s home to tally up the value of the man’s collection, and what they found was shocking.
