FUSE TV - 'The Kanye Effect' – Episode 5: Yeezy and Sneaker Culture

Welcome back to The Kanye Effect, our six-week digital miniseries exploring the many ways the hip-hop visionary has changed the game. Episode 5, "Sneaker Culture," features commentary from Mike B, a.k.a. the Prince of Fashion, YouHeardThatNew's Low Key, Alvin Blanco from Hip-Hop Wired and Fuse.tv's Zach Dionne.

Low Key sums up Kanye West's sneaker game like this:

"You look at the shoes and it's like, yeah, who else would it be? Jay's not gonna make a sneaker like that, T.I.'s not gonna make a sneaker like that, Wayne's not. It takes someone with the mental capacity of Kanye, negative and positive, to make a shoe that just speaks, 'This is my sneaker, and I'll be the only one to wear it and be fine with it.'"
