Year: 2009 

Shortly after Yeezy pumped out 808's & Heartbreaks, he trumped his sonic masterpiece with something we are all fucking with aesthetically. It’s been just over three years since the Air Yeezys released, and some people are still smackin’ themselves with a palm full of baby powder for missing out on these. Is it the Jordan inspired sole, the glow-in-the-dark features, or the insane attention to detail and cut of the boot? The shoe was wildly over the top, which fit the artist perfectly. From the first moment we saw samples of the shoe to Kanye’s Grammy performance, you knew Mr. West had a hand in designing them. With the Yeezy IIs right around the corner you can expect them to be on 'Plex's best of 20 years list – we aren't going anywhere and with the IIIs already being worked on, it appears Kanye's line isn't either.
