A Complete History Of Hip-Hop Sneaker Deals

Kanye West Collaborates With Louis Vuitton

When: 2009

It's no secret that Kanye has always had aspirations to create within the fashion world. Thus, when LV Creative Director Marc Jacobs gave Yeezy the opportunity to orchestrate his own sneaker line, the self-proclaimed "Louis Vuitton Don" graciously accepted the chance to bring his nickname to fruition. Taking inspiration from the padding of the collars worn in the movie "Dune," Kanye focused on a "juxtaposition of soft and electric" colors. With prices at around a G, the Don's, Jasper's and Mr. Hudson are amongst hip-hop's priciest kicks.
