The Kanye West Nike Sneakers Look Like Weird Shoe Dragons

Get your Air Yeezy IIs soon, if you think you can pull off kicks designed by Kim Kardashian’s beau.

1. Behold: The Nike Air Yeezy II

First off, let me be clear: I don’t hate these. Although I’m not exactly a sneakerhead, I’ve worn my fair share of Nikes, and they’re pretty much always the coolest. (Let’s forget about that time I asked a fellow sports journalist if the sneakers he was wearing were Concords — as in, Air Jordan XIs — and he nearly started crying. Because they weren’t.)

But at the same time: these are kind of weird-looking? They’re bumpy on the ankle, like a foam stegosaurus? The meshing on the sides look like bleached dragon scales? That belt-sized strap? Sorry I’m asking so many questions.

Let’s check out how they look on their namesake, Yeezy himself:


Oh… sorry.

But yeah, Air Yeezy IIs, coming June 9 in limited numbers to a dinosaur near you. Save your pennies, because they’re going to set you back a few allowances.
