It took nearly a decade for adidas to convince Kanye West to return to the fold and finally design that collaborative sneaker under the adidas Originals imprint as initially planned. That’s right. Before any of Kanye’s designs with Nike, Yeezy was supposed to design a tennis shoe with the three stripe’s lifestyle imprint. Ben Pruess, once the global director of adidas Originals, shared a rare glimpse at what Kanye was cooking up with adidas dating back to 2006 on his Instagram. What resulted from the brief collaborative process was a reworked adidas Rod Laver Vintage tennis shoe complete with the early-era College Dropout bear logo on the tongue.
