Kanye West vs Virgil Abloh: Who Are You Rooting For In 2018
The sneaker realm is forever indebted to the style icons and designers Kanye West and Virgil Abloh. Both of them were a celebrated joint in the sneak-grounds back in 2012. But after some dynamic drops, they decided to part ways and worked on their own. Kayne invested himself in designing the super trendy street-runners, Yeezy boost with adidas and Abloh went on a journey with Nike for his Off-White: “The Ten” Collection. Their modern-day aesthetics and vintage runners collide together and give the best performer a wearer deserves!
We all know about the Off-White kicks and Yeezys. The question is, whose style is going to reign this 2018? Follow @FastSoleUK for every little sneaker-wave in the grounds and stay tuned.
Kanye does dominate the tune-way and also the footwear lane! He was a Swoosh-lover as a child but somehow found interest in working with the Trefoil. His first partnership with adidas, the Yeezy 750, wrecked the streets in 2015. Like many other celebrities, Ye is a popular meme-topic! His Yeezy wasn’t spared either. Even so, the runners flew off the racks right after hitting the stores! The instant-fame made it get injected with the highly-engineered Boost Tech of adidas. Since then, Yeezy boost 350, Yeezy 350 V2, Yeezy 950, Yeezy Calabasas Power Phase, Yeezy 500 and 750 have been lighting up the lanes.
When the sneak freaks were going crazy over the YB-kicks, the Swoosh called up the designer that can make the fans more confused to choose a pair! Virgil Abloh unveiled his Off-White four years ago, and because of his immensely appreciated designs, he has been a regular on Paris Fashion Week and a menswear designer at Louis Vuitton.
Abloh re-touched ten classic Swoosh kicks for “The Ten“- Air Force 1, Air Max 90, Air Max 97, Air Presto, VaporMax, Blazer, Converse Chuck Taylor, Hyperdunk, Jordan 1, and Zoom Fly. He gave his signature aesthetic to these stars. The plastic bright red hang-tag, quote, orange hits and everything!
As a new season is approaching, now it’s a good time to show your allegiance to a line. Who do you wanna go for?
