The “Crash and Burn” artist hasn’t always been into collecting sneakers, in fact he just began doing so about four years ago. Rhett began his music career by rocking cowboy boots on stage, but once the energy of his shows began to pick up, he knew he needed a change.
“During my live shows I was wearing nothing but cowboy boots” Rhett told Billboard. “When I started to move around the stage a little bit more, my live show became way more energetic and I knew I had to ditch the cowboy boots because I was literally going to break my ankle.”
The transition from boots to sneakers was not an easy one for Rhett. He called it the most “terrifying” transition of his life.
