Since Kanye West jumped into the pop-culture limelight, he has been considered to be most noted celebrity sneakerheads on the planet. He has his own Nike shoe for cryin’ out loud, and he’s got his own line of high-end sneakers with Louis Vuitton! That’s not one, but two accomplishments that aren’t likely to be duplicated by anyone else, and it’s no wonder that Kanye has been a fashion trendsetter for the younger generation for years. Kanye West was recently spotted while attending a fashion show in London, wearing a conventionally ‘un’-fashionable outfit of a white t-shirt, ripped jeans, and sneakers; what we’re more interested in is the Black/Red Air Jordan 1 he had on – a nice follow-up to his Nike Mag sighting from over the weekend. Check out Kanye West’s latest footwear sighting after the jump and let us know what you think.
Nice shoes. (Gotem!) ...but the outfit is whack. ripped jeans? NO... Multicolored wrist bands? NO... He looks like a black PUNKY BREWSTER lol... (look it up youngins)
rippeed jeans and a white tee...i see it all the time...i dont think he is trying to appeal to anyone in that outfit...he prolly just threw it on regardless of what people thought b/c he is kanye west...but thats Mr.West to you.
k chin, if u know ur J's ud know the banned 1 came wif the nike swoosh logo in the front, only diff is the x on the back which we cant tell. n judging from how white the sole is it's most likely the banned's, ive got a pair of 01's n they yellowing a bit.
If u judge a man for what he has on then your gay,stop hating on the next person for something u cant robocop....smh@u dudes
Hes wearing 2001s or OGs. Correct me if im wrong, but the banned didn't come equipped with a check on the tongue did they?
not loving his fit, am i the only one? also, complex said these were the "banned" edition, not the breds. ik theres no difference in colorway, but a real sneakerhead should recognize
Kobe? Foh Lmfao talentless? Did you just come from under a rock? Or did u just step out the closet? Cornball
Kanye is a talent-less fag....is that why you sitting behind a screen and he is preforming in front of thousands of people. Silly troll...
