 There were so many who doubted the "Power" of Kanye West. (That was a play on his hit song off the "Twisted, Dark Fantasy" album...) After leaving Nike, who refused to pay him royalties due him for the massive sales of the iconic Air Yeezy collection, 'Ye comes out of the corner faster and stronger with Adidas. We told you back in January that Adidas is on the come up for that #1 spot they once held. From the looks of things, I can tell you by 2016, we'll be looking forward to 60% of everything they drop. That's for a later conversation. Right now, the topic is the "Pirate Black" Yeezy 350 Boost, and its the only thing on the radar.
 Here we go. A Black knit upper, complimented by a primal Grey striped pattern that covers the entire upper. A Black canvas pull-tab on the back of each sneaker for easy slip-on. The thick, rope laces are an added touch. It gives the shoes a nice, firm balance.
 There's one thing that we should be talking about. It is Adidas' answer to Nike Air. The Boost Technology is included in the Yeezy's, from toe to heel. The comfort it provides to your feet is something many will be speaking of (if you are blessed with the chance to have a pair of Yeezy 350 Boost, or a different pair of kicks from Adidas which carries the Boost Technology) by this time next year. You can feel the difference.
The stamp on the insole. Adidas x Yeezy is the kind of collaboration we've always wanted, but didn't know it. Just like Jay-Z and Biggie. Could you imagine if they did an entire album together? The sneaker culture deserved this. Kanye was one of the first to defect from the machine. Believe in yourself, in your passion. Don't take no for an answer, and NEVER sell yourself short. Kanye took a leap on faith, and I'm sure those laws were in the back of his mind.
48 hours from now, the WORLD will understand, yet again, why Kanye is such a WINNER. His designs, whether it be sneakers or fashion, is usually pushing the envelope. Some say "ahead of his time". I say Kanye is a fashion designer who deserves the same respect as Riccardo Tisci, or Gaultier, or Versace. His fashion is more than a statement. Nike knows. He didn't just "Do It", he did it. Snatch up the "Pirate Black" Yeezy 350 Boost this Saturday, August 22nd.  Cali "O" #TeamKickGame #PirateBlack #YeezyBoost
