The Making of The Nike Air Yeezy

It’s amazing to see how the first ever non-athlete with a signature shoe from Nike designed his first shoe.

After meeting with Kanye, Smith gathered that Kanye wanted a clear Retro 80s feel without comprimising comfort. Apparently, Kanye wanted to include quite a few elements from his favorite shoes–the tongue height of the Jordan VI, the toe band on the III, and the molding of the V and II. This information may not be a revelation to those who follow Jordan releases, but it’s interesting that even the lace locks from the V are present on the Yeezys that were released. The colors were a collaborative effort, according to Smith, who said that the tan was mostly Kanye, the black and pink idea was his own, and the gray was a collaborative effort. (Freshnessmag)
