Kanye West can add yet another accomplishment to his litany of awards as he won the coveted Shoe Of The Year Award at the 2nd annual Footwear News Achievement Awards last night in New York City. After announcing his multi-million dollar deal with Adidas at the tail end of 2013, this year, West revealed his Yeezy Boost 750 high-top and Yeezy Boost 350 low-cut, which became one of the biggest must-haves in 2015. The shoe was sported by tons of celebrities and was heralded by sneakers fanatics, selling out immediately and having a high resell value.
As he stepped to the podium to accept his FNAA award, which has been dubbed the “shoe Oscars,” Kanye was his usually candid self, telling the audience “if you don’t like profanity-laden speeches that end in a Presidential bid, I suggest you go to the bathroom now.”
I care about product. I’m dead serious for what I create as an artist in this lifetime,” he said. “It’s a spark that I want to bring joy. And just like when my daughter is singing and jumping around—she might not be finishing her sentences perfectly, but she’s brining so much joy. And I know that she’s going to grow up and be amazing. So you can see a spark in the pieces I do so that one day they can’t grow up and be amazing.
