1. “The College Dropout” Nike Air Max 180 (2006)
Unlike future collabos with Kanye, Nike’s “The College Dropout” Air Max 180 was made for only one person: Kanye West (who wears a size 12, btw). Even though there are a couple of sample pairs floating around, it’s pretty impossible to find them.
2. Kanye West Bape “Dropout Bear” Bapesta (2006)
Remember the Bape craze of the mid 2000s? Well Kanye West’s “Dropout Bear” Bapes dropped right in the middle of that, in very limited quantities. Every couple of years a pair will pop up on eBay.
3. Kanye West’s Reebok S. Carter Collection (2008)
The S. Carter Collection was Jay Z’s shoe line that dropped in the early 2000s. Years later, a number of Kanye West-themed Reebok S. Carter shoes randomly released on eBay. Not much is known about the collection.
4. The Nike Air Yeezy (2009)
During the 2008 Grammys, Kanye hit the stage and performed “Stronger” and “Hey Mama.” During that performance he also premièred the Nike Air Yeezy in all-black, a pair that ended up never being released. The shoe would officially release months later in three colorways. All three colorways flew off shelves.

5. Kanye West’s Louis Vuitton Collection (Part 1)
The same year Nike dropped Yeezy, high-end brand Louis Vuitton dropped their Kanye Line. It wasn’t one shoe, though. It was a collection, with each sneaker being titled after someone in ‘Ye’s clique. There was Don (pictured right) named after Kanye’s manger, Don C; Jasper, named after Kanye’s barber; and Hudson, named after Mr. Hudson.
