Ice Spice thought it was worth the trouble.

Ice Spice says she used to get detention in high school for violating the dress code by rocking a pair of Air Jordan “Black Cat” 4s. She discussed her experience with sneakers during an interview with Complex's Joe La Puma at SoleStage in Los Angeles.

"That's another reason I wasn't a big sneakerhead because I had to wear hush puppies or like flats and stuff like that. But, you know, on the weekends I got to wear regular clothes," she said, revealing that she attended catholic school. "I would try to put on like these," she said referencing the “Black Cat” 4s. "And, I would always get like a detention for it or sent to the office and stuff like that. I would be like, 'Oh, I lost my hush puppies,' or like, 'They're dirty. Let me wear these.' But, they wasn't going for that."
