There’s arguably more hype around the Nike Air Yeezy than any sneaker we can remember, but before Kanye West became one of them r&b sangers and got his own Nikes, he’d been seen loving Jil Sander’s designs.
Whatcha think, Yeezy? What about you, SneakerNews readers — let the world know with a comment. For what it’s worth, your author wouldn’t mind tiptoeing through the snow in these white wonders. They’re very expensive ($345 and $395 for the low and high versions, respectively), but Sander’s collaboration with Aloha Rag are well worth it if you can afford them. Beautiful tonal white leather, white stiching, laces — ALL white. The upper is done in in leather laid over suede, and the effect is breathtaking.
