In addition to a lot of other things, Kanye West is the gift that keeps on giving in the world of sneaker blogging. Today, the music and fashion icon celebrates his 37th birthday, and we're gifting him a tribute to his famed Nike signature sneaker line.

Though only two models deep, the Air Yeezy series left an everlasting impression on the sneaker industry. For the past six years, the Yeezys have arguably been the most sought after and collectible pairs among enthusiasts.

Kanye has now taken his creative energy to adidas, with whom he hopes to have a similar string of success. Before he unveils his first project with the 3-Stripes, join us in a look back at Mr. West wearing every released colorway of the Nike Air Yeezy 1 and 2, with a few sample pairs of each to boot.
