Celebrity Feet: Kanye West – Nike Mag 2011
It’s likely that celebrity sneakerheads gave themselves no limit for high bids on the Nike Mag 2011 auctions. Tinie Tempah threw down $37,500 for the first live auction in Hollywood, CA, and Kid Cudi ended up picking up four pairs himself. We even saw baseball hurler Brian Wilson actually wear his pair around the dugout, but add Kanye West to list of ‘sneakerheads with money’ to have rocked the Mags out in public. Kanye West was spotted with these super-high-tops backstage during the ACL Festival in Austin, TX, and it seems to fit his style quite seamlessly as the Air Yeezy design itself drew inspiration from the then-fictitious Nike sneaker.

Hello, Neat post. There's a problem along with your website in web explorer, may test this? IE nonetheless is the market chief and a huge part of other people will omit your wonderful writing due to this problem.
...for someone with all that MONEY,KANYE is a FUNNY dressing guy.His outfits have a,almost,HOMOSEXUAL theme to them....but if thas what you like,its what you like.
Why do people hate on Yeezy so much? Take your fucking tampons off. You really think he bided on these? Why would someone like Kanye, who has great ties with nike bid on these? He most likely received a pair from nike free of charge. And did you guys buy him these shoes? NO so let him wear them how ever the fuck he wants to.
please sneakernews,we dont care that kanye has a pair! no shi$ ! this is news? not at all,its called common sense that someone as overated and autotuned as kanye would cop a pair hes got milllions of undeserved dollars,news? how?
When the Nike mags came out for auction, the first person i thought of that would rock these publicly is Kanye;now, it's reality.
This is so effin lame. We already know 'stars with money' are gonna cop these knowing some people that have wanted these forever cant get them
You already knew this was coming. Brian Wilson stole everyone's shine. Lol. Still much props to anyone with a pair.
I just hope not too many celebrities got them, because I'm sure other people want them too. Can't outbid a celeb.
I honestly thought of Kid Cudi being first, rocking one of his 4 pairs first ; possibly a photo-shoot of him on His Moon.
i lucked out & got a pair.. i guess lucky fa me i wear a 13 & didnt have to donate dat much.. either way money goes to a good cuz & i was able to grab a limited shoe
