A History of Kanye West’s Sneaker Collabs

February 10th, 2014 by / 33

Today marks the ten-year anniversary of the release of The College Droupout, the debut album from Kanye West that would be a precursor to a decade of dominance from the Chicago rapper. Yes, his name was known prior thanks to the stray mixtapes and production credits, but it was Dropout that introduced Kanye the character; the multifaceted music man who was equal parts brilliant and boisterous. As he’s been prone to reminding the general public of late, Kanye’s aims have always been broader than just music. The sneaker world in particular has felt his force-from that obscure Nike Air 180 that wore his bear logo to the frenzy of yesterday’s surprise Red October release.

Gathered here are all of the sneakers that Kanye West has worked on over the years. Mind you we’re talking individual silhouettes-so we’re not running through every individual obscure Yeezy sample floating around. Also we’re sticking to the shoes that he’s credited with having a hand in-so his supposed help on the Giuseppe Zanotti line is omitted as well. What remains is a body of work that spans a number of brands and ranges from the luxury heights of his Louis capsule to the comparative everyman appeal of the Yeezy line. Continue reading to check out our College Dropout tribute in the form of this Kanye West sneaker history piece and tell us in the comments which pair you believe to be the most underrated.

Can't wait to see what kind of hot garbage Adidas slaps his name on. I'm no hypebeast but the yeezy 1s and 2s will be hard to match. And Nike knows how to create the hype unlike Adidas. At this point I'm not even excited to see his line of Adidas shoes.


@sneakernews no I would rather pay 900+ for those than pay for the Yeezy 2s that are probably cheap quality.


You forgot about the WMNS Clot X KanyeWest AirMax 1s bruh


You forgot about the Glow In The Dark Tour Huraches.


I don't know if the AirMax 1 FB Yeezy or the Roshe FB Yeezy count as collaborations but they should be added also.

@inFamousKicks Good call! Sort of a weird one since there is no Kanye branding and the "collab" status of them is vague, but it's been added.
