Some used to giggle at the possibility of a rapper being the greatest name in sneakers. They would never beat NBA hotshots or addition the regard of footwear industry stalwarts. At that point came Kanye West. Everything began in 2009 with the arrival of his Nike Air Yeezy I, at that point came a Louis Vuitton accumulation, the Air Yeezy II, a transition to Adidas, thus the story goes. Obviously there are shoes he’s done before that: Unreleased Reebok S. Carters and Nike Air Max 180s. Be that as it may, the genuine energy of West as a footwear creator was realized when he got his very own shoe, the Yeezy, and now in the majority of its emphases.
So what did we do? We positioned them. Here are the best and the most noticeably terrible.
11. Louis Vuitton Mr. Hudson
Louis Vuitton Mr. Hudson
Mr. Hudson proclaimed that he needs to be “everlastingly youthful” on the JAY-Z track of a similar name in 2009. No one has known about him since. His name will live in shame because of one Mr. Kanye West, who named one of his three Louis Vuitton tennis shoes after the silver-haired crooner. This shoe truly rides the scarce difference of being tennis shoe or not. It’s a deck shoe, however it has a similar sole as the remainder of the Louis Vuitton x Kanye models. So it gets the pass.
10. Adidas Yeezy Boost 750
Adidas Yeezy Boost 750
In June of 2016, Kanye West was joined on the Summer Jam organize at the Meadowlands by individual G.O.O.D. music rappers Travis Scott, 2 Chainz, Big Sean, Pusha T, and Desiigner. Their joint execution was outstanding, however it was what was on their feet that captured everyone’s attention. West and his devotees were bound in the new Yeezy Boost 750 in its Gray/Gum colorway that discharged only a couple of days following this noteworthy trip. Manufactured more like a boot than a real tennis shoe, the 750, while not the most effortless shoe in the Yeezy list to draw off, is a standout amongst other fabricated. Having been racked since October 2016 and being constrained to just four retail colorways, another drop would be an invited difference in pace to the Adidas Yeezy advertise.
9. Adidas Yeezy Boost 700 V2
Adidas Yeezy Boost 700 V2 ‘Tephra’ FU7914 Lateral
Why fix it if it’s not down and out? The Adidas 700 is outstanding amongst other Kanye West shoes, time. The 700 V2 isn’t terrible, yet it’s very little, assuming any, enhancement for the first structure. So, the primary shoe is great to such an extent that the spewed structure—or somewhat changed, however you see it—is still quite not too bad.
8. Adidas Yeezy 500
Adidas Yeezy 500 ‘Supermoon Yellow’ DB2966 (Right Shoe)
At the point when the Yeezy 500 appeared in December 2017, it was met with quick cynicism by numerous in light of the fact that it was just accessible in the event that you bought a $760 attire group. All future colorways would discharge sans the required Kanye West articles of clothing and the open gathering moved, yet it’s protected to state the underlying dispatch was to some degree a bungle. In spite of the minor hiccup, the outline is one of Kanye’s all the more fascinating structures with the flighty state of its softened cowhide and work upper adjusting consummately with the thick pattern commanding shoes at the time. Obtaining the padded sole from Kobe Bryant’s KB3 mark model is another additional touch some probably won’t understand, yet is positively worth referencing. The 500 has never been especially difficult to get, yet the plenty of monochromatic colorways have all sold out without breaking a sweat each and every time. That doesn’t mean they exchange at overly significant expenses however. All are great choices on the off chance that you need to score a Yeezy at a progressively sensible cost in contrast with a portion of its partners.
7. Louis Vuitton Don
Louis Vuitton Don
Before Virgil Abloh’s memorable arrangement as creative chief of Louis Vuitton menswear in 2018, there was West’s footwear accumulation with the celebrated French style house in 2009. The coordinated effort was absolutely a forerunner of West’s direction in the years that pursued as he turned out to be progressively associated with the style configuration space pushing ahead. The red low-top was seemingly the most looked for after of the five colorways that discharged, yet nowadays its great to perceive any pair of this extravagance tennis shoe bound up in the city. This shoe likewise delivered one of the best Kanye West minutes ever. Watch this in the event that you don’t have the foggiest idea what I’m alluding to.
6. Nike Air Yeezy I
Nike Air Yeezy I
This is the tennis shoe that begun everything. The shoe, made couple with Nike architect Mark Smith, and referenced a portion of West’s preferred tennis shoes, including the Air Jordan III, which he used to attract class during primary school. The tennis shoe discharged in three diverse colorways, which would turn into the base for his second Nike shoes, yet an entire pack of different shoes from Nike and different brands. The shoes may have not held up just as a portion of his different tennis shoes, essentially due to their huge, cumbersome structure; something that has dropped out of support throughout the years. Yet, it embodies the early vitality and energy that West put into his tennis shoes.
5. Adidas Yeezy Boost 350
Turtle Dove Yeezy 350 Boost AQ4832
The Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 probably won’t be the first Adidas Yeezy model that dropped, yet it positively the shoe that launch this relationship into the standard. Discharging around the hour of West’s The Life Of Pablo venture, a couple of fans were fortunate enough to verify a free pair for effectively think about a big motivator for TLOP via web-based networking media. Featured by its unique “Turtle Dove” colorway, a contention can surely be made that the fast keep running of 350s is the baffling rapper’s best work with the Three Stripes. Tragically, the model’s monstrous fame brought about a quite considerable measure of fake sets to be created, so in case you’re in the market for your very own couple, be careful about the imitations.
4. Louis Vuitton Jasper

The minute I thought this would have been a great tennis shoe was when Kid Cudi wore it on the pages of Complex Magazine in 2009, with the pink sole stuck in a childish heap of pink goo. That colorway, with its dark calfskin upper and over-the-top bottoms, was an indication that Kanye West realized how to grab somebody’s eye through footwear plan. It likewise demonstrated that he could get individuals to drop genuine coin on a couple of shoes. These went for $1,140. That probably won’t appear to be a ton on the auxiliary market today, however a 10 years back that was incredible. Many idea West wasn’t making this joint effort for the “sneakerheads.” He refuted them. He’s gone on to greater fame and more standard ventures, however the Louis Vuitton joint effort still holds an exceptional spot in the hearts of his actual fans.
3. Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2
adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Beluga Sole Collector Release Date Roundup
The most open Kanye West structure with Adidas to date is additionally his generally significant. West’s second sock tennis shoe with the Three Stripes helped him satisfy his guarantee that everybody who needed Yeezys would in the long run get them, on account of a bounty of colorways and restocks throughout the years. The 350 V2 made West’s shoe line become something other than constrained item for a chosen few fortunate clients. It made Yeezys standard. Authorities may abhor the over immersion and absence of selectiveness the model presently holds, however that is the accurate motivation behind why it is situated so high on this rundown.
2. Adidas Yeezy Boost 700
Adidas Yeezy Boost 700 ‘Wave Runner’ B75571 (Lateral)
There’s a solid case for the Adidas Yeezy Boost 700 to be the best Kanye West tennis shoe from a structure point of view. It’s by a wide margin the best of the Adidas structures, in spite of the fact that the 350 V2 is increasingly prominent. It has everything: Layers, materials, a form out of a genuine outline, and a stunning O.G. colorway. The “Wave Runner” 700 is pass on Kanye’s best Adidas tennis shoe. This tennis shoe likewise moved an adjustment in Kanye’s line’s heading from sock shoes to genuine shoes. He could go past Boosted weave sprinters (despite the fact that the 700 has exemplified Boost on the padded sole). He had some profundity to his range. The shoe hit at the perfect time, as well. The “dad shoe” pattern was in its beginning periods, and this shoe was perhaps the best one around. A thick padded sole with a ’90s plan and help from one of the godfathers of the first dad shoes, Steven Smith. It’s since dropped in a huge amount of quieted, unacceptable colorways, which makes the first Wave Runner form considerably more energizing.
1. Nike Air Yeezy II
Nike Air Yeezy 2 “Red October”
The “Red October” Nike Air Yeezy 2.
Kanye’s last curtain call with the Swoosh remains his best work to date. The snakeskin side boards, hieroglyphic hits, and shine in obscurity Air Tech Challenge II sole made for a significantly more wearable outline than the Air Yeezy I. The underlying “Unadulterated Platinum” and “Sun oriented Red” colorways dropped in 2012, similarly as tennis shoe culture was truly beginning to acquire standard consideration. Let’s face it however, the “Red October” that would discharge two years after the fact is the crown gem. From the time he spit the line, “Yeezys all on your couch/These the Red Octobers,” on the Yeezus cut “Hold My Liquor,” the promotion train ran wild. The discharge nearly didn’t occur either as West was leaving his Nike bargain for greener pasture
