K. Flay's Top Five Kicks

The rising hip-hop star has a serious weakness for sneakers.

K. Flay’s music is anything but ordinary, and appropriately so, as the musician herself is an impressive mix of witty brains and serious beats. With a dual degree in psychology and sociology from Stanford University, it goes without saying that K. Flay is one smart girl. Yet rather than choosing to go corporate, she's channeling her intelligence into a very unexpected career path: hip-hop artist.

K. Flay’s self-produced release Eyes Shut  (coming in early 2012), is sure to feature tracks that are just as clever and rhythmically awesome as what we've heard from her so far (check out her mixtape I Stopped Caring in ’96). Her sound melds classic hip-hop beats and rapid-fire lyrics with guitar chords and her own "special something." The formula seems to be working:  She's already shared shared the stage with prominent artists including Snoop Dogg, Ludacris and 3OH!3.

But let's get back to shopping: Lucky got the Nike-aholic to share her top five favorite sneakers, from metallic to sheepskin.

#1 - Nike Dunk 6.0 Hi Top "I love monochromatic sneakers. The laces on these are just a liiiiitle bit neon, which is perfect. Plus they keep me safe when I'm riding my bike."

For a similar look, Lucky recommends J75 by JUMP Women's Fender-W2 Sneaker.

#2 - Nike Air Feather Hi Top."These are my go to rain shoes. I have literally encountered every form of precipitation in them and DOMINATED."

For a similar look, Lucky recommends Goliath high-top sneaker at YOOX

#3 - Nike Terminator Hi Top "I got this pair at an outlet mall in Phoenix while I was on tour with 3OH!3 last year. They have fake snake skin. But real power."

For a similar look, Lucky recommends 'Vipera' snakeskin sneakers by CHLOÉ

#4 - Nike Dunk Hi Top "This pair was sent my way in Paris. The shoes are a collab between Nike & Harris Tweed, so they are both old school classy and postmodern fresh."

For a similar look, Lucky recommends Trussardi 1911 sneaker at YOOX

#5 Nike Dunk 6.0 Hi Top "A SHEEP WENT BALD FOR THESE SHOES IS THAT NOT ENOUGH FOR YOU?"

For a similar look, Lucky recommends Honey Hi sheepskin sneaker by Adidas
