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:
QUICK, SOMEONE GET KANYE’S FEET OUT OF THOSE BEAR TRAPS.
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.
