(AllHipHop News) Kanye West was not shy about the huge success of his Yeezy sneaker line, which he will be expanding in the future with some interesting new concepts.
In a new piece in Forbes, Kanye West said his sneaker line was as big as a cultural phenomenon as Michael Jordan’s legendary Air Jordan brand with Nike.
The rapper said his 2012’s Air Yeezy II release: “was the first shoe to have the same level of impact as an Air Jordan.”
Kanye said he is now working on making his footwear line more environmentally-friendly, with one biodegradable mock-up even made from algae.
The rap star claims the shoe will “biodegrade completely over time…or almost immediately if sprayed with a certain type of bacteria.”
