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.

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:
