This isn't a shoe that would top everyone's list, but there's no denying the impact this towering hightop created. Like a tidal wave of hype, Kanye's baby rolled across continents fuelling stampedes and first class fiending everywhere it lobbed.

Kudos to Nike for keeping it real and leaving the Yeez as a one-off experiment in human behaviour.
Who else could have created such a beast?
