Jay-Z may outfit Baby Blue Ivy in Jeremy Scott wings, but when it comes to his own footwear, Hov has taken a keen liking to buddy Kanye West’s Nike collab kicks. The dude wears these Air Yeezy 2 sneakers EVERYWHERE. We’ve spied Jigga rocking these glow-in-the-dark soles from this swanky D’usse Cognac launch party to the stage at SXSW, and even on the beach!
’Ye debuted the Air Yeezy second-coming at the 2011 VMAs and subsequently sported them throughout his Watch The Throne tour with Jay. Shoes this fly are hard not to covet, especially when the designer is one of your closest friends, so we don’t blame Jay for copping a pair as soon as possible and rocking them ’til the proverbial rims fall off. We love it, actually. A lot.
We wonder, though, if Yeezy will return the favor and start weaving more Rocawear into his wardrobe. Sure, Kanye’s taste has refined since his collar-popping College Dropout days (what up, leopard Givenchy and Versace bath towels), but the brand has been revamped, dontcha know? It might be a little unlikely, but we’ll be keeping our eyes out for it because with this strong a bromance, you never know!
