You may remember last season that Kanye West turned up to nearly every runway show – even if he wasn’t invited – as he tried to forge himself a place in fashion.

Well it looks like all the persistent paid off because Kanye and Louis Vuitton collaborated to create these high top sneakers.

The sneakers are named The Dons, The Jaspers, and Mr. Hudson after people belonging to Kanye’s entourage. Kanye talks about the collaboration in with Louis Vuitton with ILOVELV.

These sneakers went on sale in the UK on Monday, but don’t assume you can walk in a buy a pair of these sneakers for £545 and upwards. Harrods have a waiting list which started 2 months ago.

They go on sale in the US today.

I’m not really into sneakers any more – I used to collect them during my hip-hop phase – but I really like these, as much as it pains me to admit.
