LOUIS VUITTON x KANYE WEST
Think back to April. At the very same time that Nike had the Yeezy running naked and buckwild, up popped another Kanye footwear project - this time with Louis Vuitton. The combo of US artiste and Frog fashion was enough to stoke the flames, but the Yeezy vapour trail also created something of a slingshot effect for these Vuittons. What was even more surprising was that the shoe looked legit, relatively original and seemed to have enough of both Kanye and LV to make it all seem worthy of nuff respect. The sticker price of $1000, as ludicrous as it seems, was hardly a negative for Nikeheads used to paying sneaker resellers four figures for rarities.
