A History of Kanye West Wearing adidas Shoes

A History of Kanye West Wearing adidas Shoes

words // Brandon Richard

As announced at a concert in Australia last month, Kanye West is expected to officially unveil his first adidas sneaker sometime in November. The shoe will be part of a collection that, according to West, will include head-to-toe sportswear for men and women. A launch date for the highly anticipated collection hasn't been set, but the first photos of the shoe may ignite an unprecedented amount of energy behind the 3-Stripes.

Before stepping foot into his own shoe, Kanye has been making rounds in a variety of other models from the adidas catalog. Most recently, he was photographed in the days leading up to his Paris wedding in the classic Stan Smith and new ZX Flux. However, this isn't Ye's first rodeo in stripes. Going back to the very beginning of his career, West can be spotted on the cover of his debut mixtape in a pair of kicks from the Originals range. The Rod Laver and Stan Smith were also a few of his go-to sneakers before signing his new deal last winter.

While we await the debut of Yeezi, take a trip down memory lane and scroll through the last decade of Kanye West wearing adidas shoes.
