Kanye Goes Over The Top
Allow me to introduce the Kanye West Nike Air Yeezy II. Following its predecessor, these sneakers are more over-the-top than any others. It seems that they took every material they had in hand and put it into these shoes.
Here’s a quote from Sneaker Freaker on the design:
“The most striking visual feature is the molded rubber ridges protruding from the shoe’s heel. Like a bony spine stretching through a taut membrane, it gives the Yeezy II an animalistic look, as though the shoe is a living, breathing hypebeast! Just as the original Yeezy was inspired by the sky-high tongue and jumbo straps of Japanese brand Ato’s cow hide boot, the Yeezy II’s heel clearly has parallels with the molded batman-suit look of Hussein Chalayan’s urban mobility experiments for Puma.”
The crazy thing is, because these are a limited edition, they are getting auctioned at $90,000, whoa! Let me think… amazing sports car or Kanye’s shoes?… I think sports car.
