Kanye West is slowly marching towards becoming that ubiquitous pop cultural icon by creating a body of work outside of music that is in high demand. His status as a footwear designer has successfully spanned two brands, which means that his fans are loyal and that's pretty powerful.

His time spent over at Adidas looks to be fruitful yet again with the release of the Yeezy 350 Boost in black. When the gray version of the shoe released, it was a smash hit, but this pair could be an even bigger hit. The stripped-down model sports a black prime-knit build and boost cushioning, which would probably make wearing it feel like the ultimate experience in style and comfort.

Adidas has confirmed the release date of the Adidas Yeezy 350 Boost in black for Aug. 22. Be it rap lines or lines at the register, Kanye is definitely good for both at this point.
