Kanye West has come a long way since releasing ‘College Dropout’ back in 2004 and has slowly become a big name in the world of trainers. Whether it be the Nike Air Yeezy or the Adidas Yeezy Boost, Ye' has made a big impact with every trainer he has released.
Around the time Kanye used to wear pink polo shirts and rock a Louis Vuitton backpack in the mid-noughties, he dropped his highly anticipated collaboration with BAPE and it sold out almost instantly.
Ye' and Jay Z regularly wore the Nike Air Yeezy's during their legendary 'Watch The Throne' tour and proved massively popular when they were finally released.
Fresh from announcing his intention to run for president, Ye' released the kicks he was wearing on stage! Unsurprisingly, they sold out instantly leaving many fans disappointed.
After dropping 2 colourways of the Air Yeezy's, Nike released the highly anticipated 'Red October' on a random Sunday afternoon in 2014. Unsurprisingly, they sold out very quickly and remain the last collaboration between Kanye West and Nike.
Following his high-profile departure from Nike, Ye' joined rival sportswear company Adidas and dropped the first ever Yeezy Boost, which sent the Internet into meltdown.
After the success of his Yeezy Boost 750 range, Kanye dropped the highly anticipated '350 Boost' version, which equally sent sneakerheads into a craze.
After Kanye West parted ways with Nike, he dropped a new range alongside Louis Vuitton which featured 'The Don' - named after his manager Don C. The high-end collaboration quickly flew off the shelves.
Ye' revealed a fresh 'pirate black' colourway of his '350 Boost' range, that had fans queuing outside of shops and refreshing their online shopping baskets to get their hands on a pair.
During the 2008 Grammys, Kanye West wore a special all-black pair of Nike Air Yeezy's while performing 'Stronger' and 'Hey Mama'. Despite the pair never being released, Nike sold a replica in three colour ways which were all hugely popular.
After teasing the all-black colourway for a few months, Kanye finally released the 'Pirate Black' Yeezys - much to the excitement of sneaker heads around the world.
Nike released the 'Platinum' Air Yeezy 2 almost a year after it was originally worn by Kanye himself. The trainer sold out quickly and currently has a resale value of roughly 10X its original price.
Ye' strayed away from the silhouette of the 350 and 750 to deliver a brand new boot, as part of his Yeezy Season 1 fashion range. Despite their non-traditional look, the rapper's latest Yeezy remained popular.
