Celebrity Sneaker Stalker // You Pick the May MVP

May comes to a close today and that means it’s up to you to decide who takes the crown as this month’s Celebrity Sneaker Stalker MVP.

Celebrity Sneaker Stalker Spotlight // 808s & Heartbreak Era Kanye West

This weekend, Kanye West is playing his pivotal and sound shifting album 808s & Heartbreak live at Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, California. Recorded in Hawaii and inspired by the passing of his loving mother and biggest supporter, Donda West, as well as a breakup with his then-finance, the sad songs (and even the happy ones) spawned some of the most transcendent work of Kanye’s career and a shift in style for Mr. West and almost all that followed.

Much like Pablo Picasso during his Blue Period, Kanye used his artistic canvas to cope and create, putting out some of his best and most interesting work of his whole career. The Heartbreak sound would draw from New Wave melodies of the ’80s, pull from then-new faces Kid Cudi and Mr. Hudson, and inspire the sound that would help launch Drake’s career with So Far Gone.

As amazing as the music was, Kanye would prove to be on one visually just as much as he was sonically. Already one to challenge norms in high fashion and hip-hop, West played with palettes, silhouettes and styles that were as off-genre as it got for rap, all the while helping bridge the gap between hip-hop and high fashion like Pharrell before him and A$ AP Rocky years after.

Kanye would help bridge such gap during the 808s era with not only statement style on stage, on the red carpet and in the front row at fashion shows, but he’d also make waves in the market. The 808s album run coincided with launches from Louis Vuitton and Nike, as well as previews from his unreleased Pastelle line.

On the day of the first 808s & Heartbreak show at Hollywood Bowl, peep some of his footwear favorites and best outfits from that pivotal era.
