Kanye West’s Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 named ‘Shoe of the Year’

Oct 29, 2015

Kanye West has had a very eventful year in fashion with two successful fashion shows at New York Fashion Week and the release of three sneakers that have sold out within minutes. The “Shoe of the Year” award from Footwear News will be added to West’s list of accolades this year at the 2015 FN Achievement Awards on December 2nd.

West released two sneakers this year, the Yeezy Boost 750 and the Yeezy Boost 350, but the 350 trainer will be honored with the distinction of Shoe of the Year.
The Yeezy Boost 350 released to the public for the first time on June 27. The trainer features an Adidas’ Primeknit upper that provides ultimate comfort and responsive support. The sneaker sold out in 12 minutes on its launch day, and it was made available again in a black colorway, which also sold out immediately.

The award-winning sneaker will release in tan this November following the launch of West’s much anticipated collaboration collection with Adidas, Yeezy Season 1, on October 29. The collection will release at over 300 retailers around the world including 6 Adidas Originals stores in Milan, Berlin, London, Shanghai, Seoul and Tokyo.
The Yeezy Boost 350 is also Adidas’ second sneaker to win the award of Shoe of the Year, the first being the Adidas Stan Smith sneaker which won in 2014.
