If you love Kanye like Kanye loves Kanye, then you’ll know that Mr West’s biggest inspiration and fan was his late mother, Donda West. Back in 2016, Don C previewed a pair of these ultra-rare and never released Air Jordan 6 samples that were made in tribute to Donda, and now nikeairjordanvi has come through with some never before seen close-ups.
The detail-oriented design from Jordan Brand consists of a perforated white leather upper with laser pattern roses printed on the toe-box and overlays. An embroidered rose is featured on both the heels and tongue, while the chorus to Ye’s heartfelt song ‘Roses’ is printed on the insole alongside Donda’s name.
While the pair serves as a very special memento to Kanye’s mother, it also can’t help but make you think about where the sneaker world would be now had ’Ye stayed with Nike.
