We're not going to pretend Kanye West created all-red sneaker colorways; he gets enough credit from us and himself as it is. Hell, the 'Red October' Nike Air Yeezy 2 wasn't even the first all-red sneaker he designed. But it was the Yeezy that connected with his audience, and some sneaker companies have gone out of their way to attempt to recreate the magic.

Most notably, there's Nike, who has shown no shame in making a few dollars from colorways inspired by their former collaborator. They couldn't have been any less subtle with their recent Flystepper 2K3 release, especially considering that a 'Solar Red' pair dropped during the spring. Fashion foward brands were likely going after the Balenciaga Arena crowd.

While West is far from the first person to ever style a shoe in red, there's no doubt that the colorway's popularity in the sneaker community this year is linked to him. To give you a feel for just how hot red-on-red is right now, we've put together a gallery of all-red shoes that have surfaced since the 'Red October' release back in February. The selection was limited to sneakers that fit the tonal red upper, minimal accents and red sole motif, so there were a few borderline models that didn't make the cut. There were also several that released between the public unveiling in June 2013 and the surprise launch earlier this year.

Is tonal red still doing it for you or should the look be put on hold? Scroll through the kicks below and let us know what you think.
