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.

In 2014, rappers are given sneakers with increasing frequency. And we don’t mean “given” in the sense of blessed with promotional pairs ahead of the release date, but rather they’ve had more and more opportunities to channel their personae into limited footwear collections thanks to the support of sneaker companies. This process didn’t happen overnight though, it took a couple of decades of endorsements before the floodgates really opened as far as special SMUs went. You of course have to give credit to Run DMC back in the ’80s for championing their adidas, and to a lesser extent LL Cool J for linking up with Troop (Although fellow Queens rapper MC Shan didn’t approve).

every nike air yeezy release How Much Are All The Nike Air Yeezys Worth?

How much would you be willing to pay for every single pair of Air Yeezys that’s seen a retail release? The current buy it now price on this auction, which captures all six from the first “Zen Grey” Yeezy 1 all the way to the surprise “Red October” Yeezy 2s, has an astronomical buy it now price of $99,999. We’re not expecting them to sell that much, but it certainly poses an interesting question regarding the eventual price ceiling on these Kanye West sneakers. If you think about it, the phenomena of Kanye sneakers has sort of just started given his bubbling adidas deal, so it’s possible that the Air Yeezy will in the future be even furthered revered as just the first chapter to this long lineage. Even bringing the bar much lower to say, $30,000 for the set would even out to 5k per pair – which is below the going rate at Flight Club for each, but you’ve got to factor in a massive finder’s fee here. Take a look at the full set below and then check out the auction for yourself from jonallon80 on eBay.
