13. Kanye West for Louis Vuitton Dons
Retail Price: $870
Issue: June/July 2009
Shortly after the Nike Air Yeezy 1, Kanye West took his talents to high-fashion design house Louis Vuitton, and cranked out three silhouettes that had sneakerheads going nuts on release day. Naming them after his crew, Kanye designed the "Don's," "Mr.Hudson's" and the "Jasper's" with each sneaker taking on a different style. The Don, a low-top sneaker that continues to be in Kanye's rotation to this day, Hudson's boat-shoe, and the high-top Jaspers were all wallet-busters, but still managed to sell out. Sure athletes and musician's have their own signatures, but this collaboration just furthered the fact that Mr.West has the clout to not only get in the ears of one of the most respected fashion institutions, but also the power to sell these products out.
