Recognized internationally, Kanye West’s Yeezy shoes are one of the top leading fashion footwear to date. But Kanye West wasn’t with Adidas since the inception of his Yeezy shoes. He was previously in a collaboration with Nike but then the two weren’t able to come up with an agreement over the design’s creative control and royalties.

                 Yeezy X Nike

Kanye West’s first collaborative release with Nike was in April 2009 and it was the Air Yeezy 1 which was available in three colorways: tan, black, and gray. It was then followed with the release of Kanye’s Louis Vuitton collaboration. 

In 2012, the Air Yeezy 2 was released with two different colorways: Black Solar Red and Platinum. It was said as well to only have 1500 pairs made. The release of the 2nd Yeezy was taken well by the fashion industry as it received positive feedback among consumers and designers.

The collaboration between the two then turned sour despite the success the Air Yeezy gained. Kanye felt that he deserved more than the giant brand is providing him. Nike refused to give the artist royalties for each pair of Yeezy sold. 

                 Yeezy X Adidas

Kanye and Adidas announced their partnership in late 2013 after the artist’s collaboration with Nike was officially over, and this collaborative transition led Yeezy’s popularity to rise high. The last Air Yeezy released was the Air Yeezy 2 Red October that Nike suddenly launched in 2014. 

In 2015, Kanye and Adidas finally dropped the Adidas Yeezy Boost 750 which Kanye had been teasing a lot by wearing it to high profile events prior to its release. The sneaker immediately went sold out after its release and Kanye assured to release more for everyone to be able to get a pair. In December 2015 and June 2016, two separate colorways were released.

Throughout the ongoing collaboration between Adidas and Kanye West, they have introduced a number of Yeezy shoes that are hyped among fans, including the Yeezy Boost 350 models and the new Adidas Yeezy Boost 380 shoe that comes in two different colorways called “Alien” and “Mist.”

  • The Adidas Yeezy Boost 380 was previously called as the Adidas Yeezy Boost 350v3.
  • Features a debossed Adidas branding.
  • Unlike the previous Yeezy 350 shoes, the Yeezy Boost 380 displays a sock-like collar that goes up higher on the ankle.
