When the world heard about culture and fashion icon Kanye entering the posse of celebrity designers at adidas, sneakerheads lost their mind wondering what kind of insane kicks might be coming. Created in 2015, the Yeezy Boost lineup has put forth distinct and classic designs that reflect the same top shelf quality of aesthetics that we’ve come to expect from Kanye’s experimental music. They have become a legit competitor to Air Jordans. The first official sneaker designed by Kanye was a collaboration with Bape. The result was the very hard to find Bapesta College Dropout shoes. After designing shoes for Louis Vuitton, he ended up working with Nike for five years and put out the Yeezy 1 and Yeezy 2 styles. His final shoe with Nike was the Red October Air Yeezys 2 in 2013. Kanye decided to leave Nike because they would not pay royalties for his designs, instead offering to give that money to a charity. He reached out to adidas and received an arrangement that met his terms, and the rest is history.
