Open Post: Hosted By Kanye West’s Terrible Shoe Sketches 

August 1, 2018 / Posted by:

In case you needed any more evidence that Kanye West is as suitable for fashion design as Kim Kardashian is suitable for rocket science, he shared some of his “sketches” on Twitter from his new Yeezy 2019 collection. I put sketches in quotations because: are they? Are they, really?

Kanye’s sharing of his fashion prowess backfired on him when Twitter saw his sketches and thought to themselves: “The actual fuck?” Kanye’s fashion brand Yeezy has been messy from the start. It’s been called overpriced, the fashion shows have been messy and boring, it’s been accused of copying work, on a few occasions, and just generally has been dragged for being incredibly ugly by literally everyone.

Well, Kanye never listens to his haters, only the voice of God, which to Kanye is his voice. And that godly voice told him to keep designing. And design he did. He created new iterations of his unexplainably popular 700, 500 and 350 sneakers. The shoes are each named after the number of people who threw up when they saw them before someone managed to put them on their feet without puking in total disgust.

Oh but Kanye wasn’t done. Inspiration hit him and he decided to add a basketball shoe to the mix because NBA athletes also deserve the right to be humiliated for their terrible footwear choices:

Those shoes are what happens when a roller derby coach lies on his resume to get a job at Steve Madden. Those shoes are what happens when a basketball player falls into an icy lake full of fallen leaves and his corpse gets pulled out a week later. Those shoes are what happens when you put a sneaker and a piece of Play-Doh into a machine that creates hybrids and the result comes out screaming in pain demanding to be killed to end it’s suffering.

Twitter also thought those things were a joke and let him know:

Kanye West has the style sensibilities of a lobotomized neanderthal with no eyesight, tactile senses or hearing. Kanye West has the style sensibilities of a schizophrenic, alcoholic, mute nun who wears a heavily-used clown-suit under her habit. Kanye West has the style sensibilities of a one-armed nomad who sews his own clothes together from material he finds in graves he digs up with a spoon from Dairy Queen.

With that being said, those sneakers are probably going to sell out, because this is the world now.
