Kanye West is the master of thinking outside the box and ultimately creating sneakers that spark a conversation. Each time the fashion and music mogul announces a new drop, social media erupts with excitement, intrigue, and in some cases critique.
The latest Yeezy drop to take over social media? The new Adidas Yeezy Knit Runner ($200), which were best described by GQ as “a sweater for the foot.”
Since news broke that the silhouettes would be shoppable on September 23, loyal Yeezy fans and sneaker enthusiasts quickly hopped on Twitter to weigh in on the newest addition to laceless footwear.
Below, see how the internet is reacting to the new “Sulfur” colored kicks.
Good or bad, there's no question that the sneakers are a conversation piece that has 'Ye heading to the bank. In fact, the billionaire's new drop has already sold out on the Yeezy Supply site and single-handedly proves that Mr. West is a marketing genius.
According to Sneaker News, the YEEZY 700 “Wash Orange” is next in line to be released in October, and we’re sure there will be just as much hype around the newness.
