Kanye West and Rihanna are titans of music and popular culture and have both long been powerful influencers of street style across the world.
But when it comes to footwear, West, 38, whose Yeezy shoes have a cult following and sell out within hours of going on sale, has led the race for dominance - until now.
In recent weeks, Rihanna, 28, appears to be fast gaining ground on the rapper.
Her Fenty x Puma show ¨C her first as the brand¡¯s creative director - made Rihanna, 28, the talk of New York Fashion Week and her new shoe The Trainer has been flying off shelves.
Could newbie RiRi and her Fenty line for Puma topple the king of trainers?
FEMAIL sizes up the footwear offerings of the two stars to see how they measure up.
The Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 in black had a retail price of $200 through official channels but now used pairs are up for as much as $2,000 on Ebay.
Thanks to the seriously limited quantities, people have been known to line up for hours - even days to score a pair of the coveted shoes
Rapper French Montana also shared some photos over the weekend on his Instagram with West. West, Montana and rapper Nas recently shot a music video for Montana¡¯s song ¡°Figure It Out¡± at the Mojave Air and Space Port in California. West is wearing the same sneakers in the photo, while Montana wears a pair of white Yeezy Boost 350s that have never been released. He shared a video of himself and West, saying that the pair were specially made and were not going to be released to the public.
t¡¯s nearly impossible to keep up with Kanye West these days. Last week, West touched down in Paris with Kris Jenner for Paris Fashion Week. The two sat front row at Balmain as Kendall Jenner opened and closed the show.
On Saturday, West jetted back to New York for a birthday celebration for his friend, producer 88-Keys, at the Polo Bar in New York. On his Instagram, 88-Keys wrote that West surprised him at dinner and then ¡°flew back out three hours later.¡±While at New York¡¯s JFK Airport, West was spotted wearing new Yeezy Boost 350s from the Yeezy Season 3. The shoes, which are gray with an orange stripe down one side, have not been released yet. West debuted his Yeezy Season 3 collection at New York¡¯s Madison Square Garden in February.West was back in Paris in time for the Givenchy runway show on Sunday. Perhaps he¡¯ll be attending the Chanel show on Tuesday, as Kendall Jenner will likely be modeling. There¡¯s a good chance he¡¯ll also show up at his good friend Virgil Abloh¡¯s show for Off-White on Tuesday evening in Paris. For the most part, West has been wearing Yeezy Boost 750s in several different colors around the city, and Kris Jenner wore a black pair.
