According to Urban Dictionary:
Slang referring to the rapper Kanye West

However, now Yeezy also refers to Kanye's shoes.

According to

"Air Yeezy is a brand of sneakers/trainers produced by Nike which were designed for and endorsed by the rapper Kanye West.

"The Air Yeezy sneakers were developed from a strong relationship between West and Nike. Partnering with Nike Creative Director, Mark Smith, Kanye was taken through the product creation process, the same way athletes have with Nike Design for the past 37 years. This creative partnership of Smith and West’s talents as designers yielded a unique Nike Sportswear sneaker worth the wait or was it?"

According to NIKE:
"The shoe, which takes West’s nickname Yeezy, draws upon the innovations from Nike’s rich sporting history and fuses them with original lines, materials, and design elements that reflect West’s unique style."

So what about you?

Do you own or want a pair of these shoes?


  1. I've never heard of these before, which isn't that surprising, really, since I know very little about Kanye West. I have to say I wouldn't want to own them--I'm more of a high-heels girl! :)

  2. I haven't heard of them either.

  3. Never hear of them until now.

  4. Hi Margo. Apparently Kanye is dating Kim Kardashian. Big Whoop! My younger son is into Kanye, and sneakers... he usually wears Aditas. Hey, I write YA thrillers too, so pop on by my blog if you like! I'm glad I wandered over here. Catherine (Catherine Stine's Idea City)

  5. I should think they'd support my feet nicely as I trundle up the hill behind my walker. ;-) I put comfort first, but these might be too expensive for a pensioner.

  6. adidas gal here. Did you ever see this movie "Elizabeth town" where Orlando Bloom is a sneaker designer? I want a pair of those shoes that he designed. (they had these kind of flaps/wings that were a total disaster)
