Love him or hate him, Kanye West is an undeniable part of sneaker history.
As we discussed on Outside The Box a few weeks back, Kanye has been a part of the shift in sneakers that could only happen with the help of mass amounts of followers and mainstream media placement that no athlete is capable of.
That said, it’s probably a direction we will see only become more and more the norm as people increasingly get their information from online social media outlets.
So, with the value of Kanye West designs consistently on the rise. Where do you think the price of his first collabs will go? You can grab the whole Louis Vuitton x Kanye West Collection right here for a hefty price but looking at the trends, it might actually be a worthwhile investment.
