It's hard to believe it has been a decade since Kanye West cheated death in a car accident and the Chicago native took full advantage, transforming from one of the most promising up-and-coming producers to arguably the biggest pop culture icon in the world. Everything he does makes headlines on every news outlet, a website is dedicated to his often imitated sense of style, and every new track or album he drops causes social media traffic spikes at ridiculous rates — he wasn't far off when he compared himself to Michael in his prime. During his run as the King he has put out a few albums that are going down in history as classics and along the way he took every chance to showcase his passion for fashion — especially sneakers. And when the first non-athlete to get a Nike signature shoe talks about kicks (our friends at Nice Kicks charted his and Jay's Michael Jordan references) we figured we should take notes.
