ICYMI, the new Yeezys look like chunky old skate shoes

Kanye West is a rapper and designer of clothing, mostly quite nice clothing – some looks like stuff your dad would wear to go to the gym – and now he’s back once again with a new trainers. 

The shoe, as yet unnamed, has been… polarising. Hypebeast described the trainer as “Kanye’s take on athletic wear featuring a highly technical look with intricate upper panels, curvature lines and an elevated midsole”. Some are feeling its Nike Air Max 95 vibes while others have pointed out, quite rightly, that it looks Quite A Lot like chunk-ass old pair of skateboarding trainers.

OK, you get the point.

The pictures of the shoe were leaked by Kanye's barber Ibn Jasper on his Instagram page with the words: "Yeezy Season 6". Jasper's 130k followers responded in kind: EastonTooTrill wrote: "Them hoes are FUCKING UGLY!"; Nouxdles wrote: "Smh. Yeezy hasn't fucked a shoe up since his Nike days.... now he's fucked a shoe up."; Sinky1971 wrote: "Can I get these on prescription?"

Still, it's important to remember that hype always wins. Always. Bet your house on these selling out in mere minutes if they ever see general sale.
