Kanye West shows off his new massive Yeezy slides on Twitter: 'Big slide energy'
West took to Twitter on Thursday evening to troll himself over the matter by wearing what appears to be enormous Yeezy slides. It’s the same gray pair he wore to 2Chainz’s wedding to Kesha Ward two weeks prior, except this new version is three or four times its size.
Despite West’s fashion moment in a fresh mint green suit by Louis Vuitton at the wedding — Twitter users chose to hone in on Kanye’s tiny “orthopedic” shoe choice instead. Earlier this week, West attempted to back peddle on the style choice by justifying his shoes were worn the “Japanese Way,” shown through an image he posted that states “Your heal should extend 1~2cm off the back of the wooden sole.”
On Thursday night, the rapper not only debuted his new enormous Yeezy slides, but sneakers too (except they seem more like plush slippers than actual sneakers). Might West, known for breaking the boundaries of traditional fashion with his Yeezy line, be onto a new trend? After all, he was the one who debuted the now ubiquitous clear PVC boots before Chanel and was on the heels of the biker shorts trend, before it-girls like Bella Hadid starting sporting them.
What do you think about these shoes? Twitter users have some thoughts…
If the trend takes off, its clear West gets bragging rights.
