What’s Kanye West’s favorite shoe? Is it the Air Jordan VI, which we’ve seen him rock effortlessly time and time again on the streets and during live performances, or is it the Nike Air Yeezy, his first ever signature shoe with Nike? It’s likely a toss-up at this point because Kanye’s been wearing Air Jordans long before his Nike deal, but here’s a look at something that could have been – a Nike Air Yeezy with an Air Jordan VI outsole. This sick Yeezy x VI sample, shared by Kanye’s pal Don C, combines Yeezy’s first with Jordan’s first (championship) in a tonal-black set-up with an orange ‘Y’ lace lock, suede uppers, a leather ankle, and patent leather midfoot strap. Remember, these were a sample created at the Innovation Kitchen back in 2009 that was part of a special auction for a charitable cause. What are your thoughts on this Air Yeezy x Air Jordan VI sample as it surfaces again today? Check out the extra angles below and be sure to stick with Sneaker News for the looming release of the Nike Air Yeezy 2, which has been rumored to go down on March 23rd.
