Many had questions as to what would be next for Kanye West after leaving Nike and making the transition into adidas. With the Swoosh being widely known as a dominant force within the sports footwear/apparel industry, Yeezy’s move has helped the three stripes in its new direction and the Yeezy Boost silhouette has managed to stir up a storm within the sneaker industry. Cultivating a love/hate relationship with sneaker enthusiasts, Kanye West and his adidas Yeezy line has managed to take over things by storm and the recent 29th FN Achievement Awards has proved the Chicago native’s success. While receiving the award for ‘Shoe of the Year,’ Kanye West took the podium with important members of adidas who have helped him on his journey, along with mentioning the process and progression such as his emphasis on product, the freedom adidas provided him with, and even a shout out to the HYPEBEAST comments section around the 11:35 mark.
