TOM Gist: Kanye West’s Yeezy Boost Wins Shoe of the Year Award


Kanye West has been given plenty of accolades for his sneaker releases in the past, and last night the fashion pioneer was honored with Shoe Of The Year at the 2015 Footwear News Achievement Awards in New York City.

West teamed up with adidas this year to release his Yeezy Boost 750 and 350 sneakers , and with the rumor of a holiday colorway drop, the award couldn’t have come at a better time.

During his nearly 20-minute acceptance speech, Kanye discussed home life and told stories about his daughter North West ,his introduction to the fashion industry, quest for perfection, and more.

Congratulations to Kanye and adidas on a successful campaign!
