What is the deal with these?

Everyone seems to be going bapeshit crazy (see what I did there?) over the latest Kanye and Louis V sneakers and I don’t buy it. I understand the appeal for the Hypebeast crowd but lets be honest, this collaboration is the product of lazy design. Mr. West brings nothing new to the table here; even his most interesting looking pair is nothing more than a refined iteration of the Air Yeezy, which by design was pretty fucking ugly to begin with.

Come on Marc, with people like Lucas Ossendrijver, Raf Simons and Rick Owens (just to name a few) putting some truly innovative spin on the hi-end sneaker game, you can do better than Kanye.
