Ibn Jasper, a longtime friend of Kanye West, revealed photos of the upcoming Yeezy Season 6 trainer and I have to say….I’m here for it! Yes, its being labeled ‘the ugly shoe’ but like it or not, this style is arriving and I’m a fan. Let me tell you why…
First off, anything that’s outside of the box is cool with me. Although, the photos posted by Ibn Jasper prove that Kanye has jumped on the ugly trainer bandwagon like other designers, it’s a trend that I’d consider wearing. So, what is it that makes the Yeezy Season 6 trainer ugly? Well, for starters its very bulky. The outsole is huge. Its almost as if every detail designed on this shoe has been enlarged by 50%. I personally don’t like the netting. I despise dirty netting on a sneaker. Lastly, the shoe laces look incredibly cheap.
But, like I said before, if you look at what Gucci, Balenciaga and Raf Simons x Adidas is putting out, it makes sense as to why Kanye’s sneaker looks this way.
I guess the question is: will you be adding this to your wardrobe? Whatever Kanye sells, turns to gold so I’m sure today’s Pharrells’ and Tyler the Creators’ will be adding this shoe to cart when its released.
