The hot rumor de jour has Kanye West designing his own signature Air Jordan in the near future. This might not be an official word of the collaboration, but it’s certainly a sort of cross-pollination. The black and pink pair of Nike Air Yeezy worn by Mr. West himself at the 50th Grammy Awards this past February will be auctioned off in conjunction with Sole Collector, with all proceeds benefitting the Doernbecher Children’s Hospital, who get love from Nike each year.
