Kanye West Is Officially the King of Shoes

Erin Fitzpatrick

You already know that Kanye West is a man of many talents. But now he can add a new accomplishment to his résumé: award-winning shoe designer. His Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 sneakers will be honored as the Shoe of the Year at the upcoming 2015 FN Achievement Awards hosted by Footwear News. To go along with his new distinction, the publication is dubbing him the official King of Shoes.

In a press release, Footwear News explained why Kanye's kicks deserve the high praise: "From the moment photos started to leak last spring showing Kanye West's latest creation, the knitted laceup sneaker has been the most-coveted, most-talked-about, most-recognized (and in some cases most-expensive) footwear item of the year."

What do you think of Kanye's latest award? Tell us in the comments below! And while it might be hard to get your hands on a pair of Yeezys, you can always shop other stylish Adidas shoes.
