MediaTakeOut reported today that Kanye West is rumored to be in discussion with people from Nike to design a limited pair of Nike Air Jordan’s. Although negotiations are just starting, insiders say that Kanye and Nike are excited about the project.
Earlier this year, Kanye West launched his designs for Nike: The Air Yeezys, in 3 colorways; the Zen Gray/Charcoal, The Black/Black and The Net/Net. Each colorway launch was much anticipated by Yeezy fans because each colorway is only produced in very limited quantity.
Still in sneakerworld, Kanye West’s Louis Vuiton kicks have also been seen from one red carpet to another, worn by his fellow celebs.
Looks like the American Boy is serious in the kicks business.
