Top 10 Rappers Making Waves In Sneaker Culture
1. Kanye West
When it comes to rappers who have really become famous for putting out their own sneakers, no one is more successful in the Hip-Hop game than Kanye West. To date, he has put out sneakers with the biggest athletic and luxury brands in the world, including Nike and Louis Vuitton.
His collaboration sneakers with Nike dubbed “The Air Yeezys” are still huge hits on EBay, and some of them go for thousands of dollars. He recently left Nike and affiliated himself with Adidas, and this year, he released his Adidas Boost sneakers that caught on like wild fire.
Kanye has made no secret about his passion for becoming a major designer in the fashion game – he has already made some serious inroads into this industry with his extremely successful footwear projects, so perhaps the best is yet to come.
