Before the Travis Scott hype, Kanye West dominated the sneaker industry when he debuted his first sneaker collaboration with Nike, the Air Yeezy.
Released back in April 2009, the Nike Air Yeezy “Blink” features a Black upper paired with Pink accents on the inner lining, lace-lock and “YEEZY” printed heel tabs. Its entire upper featured an all-over “Y” print lines completed with a glow-in-the-dark outsole.
Dressed in a similar color blocking, the Nike Air Yeezy 2 “Solar Red” debuted back in June 2012. Designed by Nathan VanHook, this release was one of the most hyped and sought-after sneakers of all-time featuring a Black base with Solar Red accents and glow-in-the-dark soles. The model itself was the last from Kanye and Nike before he headed over to adidas.
