Great merchandise (alongside monumental controversy, insane tweets, and genre-defining music) has always been a pillar of Kanye West’s career. From collaborations with fashion brands to collectible tour merch to sought-after Yeezy footwear, Kanye fans have enjoyed some of the best merch in the game.
Besides making himself a billionaire, West’s success in the fashion industry has inspired a current epoch of musician-slash-designers (Rihanna with Fenty, for example, not to mention countless others). And it’s made the rapper-turned-designer a style icon for countless fans as well.
Where Can You Buy the Best Kanye Merch?
Sorting through all of Kanye’s gear (and its fakes) isn’t easy — especially because most of the best Kanye merch is only available through resale platforms like StockX and Grailed. But, if you know where to look, you can get some of the best Kanye merch online, including authentic Yeezy sneakers, Yeezy clothing, tour tees, and even Kanye bobbleheads.
What Is the Best Kanye Merch?
Read on for some of the best Kanye merch to date, along with some of our favorite Kanye fan merch. The good news: all of these items are available to buy online right now.
1. Adidas Yeezy Slide
We love the Yeezy Slides because they’re really just a stylish, low-key pair of sandals that happen to be designed by Ye. Made of soft EVA foam, the slides are as comfortable as they are modern, and the muted color options make them very versatile. Throw them on with black shorts and a white T-shirt for an easy weekend look, or pair them with baggy chinos and a statement puffer like Kanye.
2. Kids See Ghosts LP (Vinyl)
Looking to flesh out your record collection with some Kanye? Pick up this vinyl print of Kids See Ghosts. A joint album between West and Kid Cudi, Kids See Ghosts sees Ye flexing his producing chops and Cudi providing his signature humming-laced bars. The album airs towards cinematic (it’s not the greatest background music), but we like that in a hardcopy vinyl record.
3. Kanye West Yeezus Tour Tee
Many Kanye fans consider his Yeezus tour merch to be his best, and it’s hard to disagree. West commissioned artist Wes Lang (who previously worked with Metallica) to help with the design. The result was a sought-after collection filled with skeletons, Native American imagery, and a regrettable bomber jacket with a Confederate flag. The line was such a success that West later teamed with Pacsun and ASOS for affordable collections, but now you’ll only find authentic Yeezus gear through resale sites like Grailed.
Sadly, authentic Yeezus tour merch is still hard to come by (especially in specific sizes). Savvy vendors have now launched a ton of fake Yeezus tour merch online, which brings the same style for far less, but you often get what you pay for when it comes to quality.
4. Kanye Tweets Mug
Sometimes confusing, often hilarious, and always entertaining, Kanye’s Tweets have birthed (unofficial) merchandise of their own. One such piece is this mug covered in some of Kanye’s greatest Tweets, such as “It’s 1 am and I can’t stop thinking about myself” and “I be taking naps.”
5. Adidas Yeezy Boost 700 V2
The Adidas Yeezy boost sneakers cemented West as not just a rapper who makes clothes, but a bonafide fashion designer. The classic Boost 350s are still great, if not a bit played out, but right now we’re more into these Boost 700s. They’re definitely a statement sneaker, but, unlike most statement pieces, you can pair these with basics like plain tees, jeans, and chinos for a stylish, go-anywhere look.
6. Kanye West Graduation CD
With trendsetters citing lossless audio quality and hardcopy novelty, CDs are making a comeback. If you’re just getting started buying CDs, or re-building on an old collection, this Graduation CD makes a good purchase. The third and final entry in West’s debut “scholarly” album trilogy, Graduation sees the rapper ascend to “stadium status” with hits like “Can’t Tell Me Nothing,” “Stronger,” and “Good Morning.” Our recommendation? Throw it in your car’s CD player (if it has one) or pick up a portable CD player to enjoy the album.
7. Yeezy x Gap Round Jacket
Fans can finally get the long-awaited Yeezy x Gap Round puffer jacket. Like its designer, the jacket is so bold and insane that it just might be genius. Its most iconic color is this bright blue, and resale prices are surprisingly low: after skyrocketing to $1,000+, the jacket’s StockX price is currently hovering around its retail of $200.
If the Yeezy x Gap jacket happens to be sold out, you can also find great puffers at Gap.com. Although not Kanye-designed, a few of Gap’s puffers come in similar statement colors to upgrade your outerwear wardrobe, and they start at under $100. Check them out here.
8. Kanye West Candle
Leaning into his biblical references, this unofficial Kanye West candle makes a great addition to any Kanye fan’s home (or shrine). It features an image of “Saint Kanye” in priestly robes holding a bible, and customers say the handmade candle is well-made.
9. Kanye West DONDA Listening Event T-shirt
Before releasing his most recent album, Donda, West held a string of listening parties around the country. At the final listening party in Chicago, anyone lucky enough to attend could purchase merch from Kanye and Balenciaga. This long sleeve t-shirt was one piece on offer, featuring photos of Kanye’s childhood home and his late mother. The shirt is also a long sleeve-under-short sleeve design, adding some Nineties-inspired flair.
10. Kanye West Graduation Bear Bobblehead
Another great piece of unofficial Kanye merch is this bobblehead. It’s a rendering of the bear from his album Graduation, complete with a letterman jacket, wide, starry eyes and sneakers. We love it as a gift or small piece of decor because only fans of Kanye will recognize the dropout bear.
11. Kids See Ghosts Lucky Me Crewneck Sweatshirt
Some of the best Kanye merch came out of his Kids See Ghosts performance with Kid Cudi at Camp Flog Gnaw. You’ll find plenty of knockoffs across the web, but you can score this authentic Kids See Ghosts sweatshirt through StockX. With a mishmash of logos and graphics, the sweater is an easy way to add some flair to casual outfits, and some fans appreciate that it doesn’t actually have West or Cudi’s name anywhere.
Again, however, this is a hard piece to come by. If it’s sold out, not in your size, or too pricey, turn to this unofficial Kids See Ghosts hoodie on Etsy. Although it’s a knockoff, the hoodie is well-made, brings the same trippy style as the real thing, and costs $44.
