It only makes sense that Kim Kardashian is the biggest fan of her husband Kanye West’s shoe line. To show just how dedicated she is to the Yeezy brand, the reality star stepped out in a pair of Yeezy Foam Runners. It goes to show that no matter how “ugly” people think they are, Kim is standing by her husband’s designs.
The entrepreneur posted photos of her Christmas shopping get up on Instagram last Wednesday. Her street style ensemble consists of a basic gray sweatshirt, a pair of baggy track pants and an olive green puffer jacket. Lest we forget, she finished off the look with a pair of white Yeezy Foam Runners.
Kanye’s latest shoe design received a substantial amount of backlash when promotional images for them leaked in September. The Yeezy Foam Runners became the butt of jokes after people in the Twittersphere pointed out that they looked very close to Crocs. With its clog-like shape, slip-on back and its upper front featuring large oval hauls, the resemblance is uncanny.
Many avid sneakerheads who are fans of Kanye’s other runners claim that they wouldn’t be caught dead sporting the foam slip-ons. One Twitter user said “The Yeezy foam runners are just crocs that studied abroad in France” while another compared them to the foam nets fruit comes packaged in saying:
“Those Yeezy crocs look like if actual Crocs and those weird ass foam fruit wrapper things had a child”
The Yeezy Foam Runners aren’t available in the market yet, but it is slated for a 2020 release.
