Flight School: Air Yeezy I

In 2008, Kanye West was on top of the world. There wasn’t anyone around the globe that didn’t know his name and he was on the verge of winning four Grammy Awards in one night. As he took the stage and performed, viewers were not only wowed by his stage presence but his footwear as well. A bulky, high top sneaker with the sole of an Air Jordan III contained Kanye’s feet on that legendary night and it was most definitely a Nike production. The Air Yeezy’s were rumored but nobody had seen any tangible proof that they actually existed. And now that they were revealed to the public, everybody had to have them. The Air Yeezy I was a combination of so many great Nike sneakers and the glow and the dark soles really set them off. Luckily for us, Nike decided to release three different colorways of the Air Yeezy I’s, though they were incredible limited. Since then Kanye and Nike have worked on another Air Yeezy, aptly titled the Air Yeezy II and plan to continue working together in the future. The only problem is getting your hands on them!
