This isn’t the first time that a sneaker company has swerved around the typical groups selected for those x’d out sneaker releases though.

kanye main 02b 1 A Sneaker by Sneaker Breakdown of Kanye Wests Footwear Influence

It’s almost impossible to ignore the massive influence that Kanye West has had on the sneaker industry and the way its consumers choose their products. His footwear selections and tendencies were quickly imprinted into the collective conscious of his fanbase, but more importantly, they sent the industry as a whole back to the drawing board in an effort to bring products that aligned with his thinking. Of course, the pop culture megastar was just like everyone else when the sneaker culture was in its neophytic stages; he merely wore what he liked, steadily rotating Air Jordans, Air Max 1s, and Air Force 1s, but as his career began to “touch the sky”, so did his personal tastes.

kanye west adidas zx 850 2006 Ibn Jasper Reveals Kanye Wests First adidas Sneaker Design from 2006

The matter of Kanye West and the adidas ZX 850 is sort of a confusing one.

And yet Ibn has again pulled out a pair from that archive that he’s dubbed #TheFirstShoeKanyeDesigned. Take a look at the bone grey creation below and tell us in the comments if you think this is a slept-on Kanye sneaker.

Kanye West and adidas have been working together longer than you think. According to Kanye associate Ibn Jasper, Mr. West was the design mind behind the adidas ZX 850.
