Kanye West, who was recently crowned the King of Shoes, has debuted another limited-release style with the Yeezy 950 boot, available today in select boutiques worldwide, as well as Barneys.com (see the full list of retailers here) and MatchesFashion.com. One colour way has already sold out on Matches!
And what can you expect from the actual boots? Well, they’re certainly unusual, as is Kanye’s style. Available in four colorways, the unisex shoe is sort of like a cooler version of the duck boot, monochromatic and with a thicker heel. Specific prices are yet to be confirmed but are said to range from £160 to £400. “I wanted something that felt like New York or Paris or Tokyo or Santa Barbara or Chicago — a worldliness and an ease,” West explained in a statement released yesterday. “I don’t want the clothes to be the life. I want the clothes to help the life.” And we’re not going to lie, these shoes look like they could do just that—especially with winters harsh weather right around the corner.
