Sweet baby Jesus, would you look at Kanye West‘s bafflingly tiny old man shoes. Not just old man shoes, SLIDES. WITH SOCKS.
TINY SLIDES WITH SOCKS. The man wore TINY TOO-SMALL SLIDES. ACCOMPANIED BY SOME SOCKS.
It gets even worse, friends.
Kanye West, fashion geeeenious, wore TINY SLIDES. WITH SOCKS. TO.
I know I’ve spaced this out a ridiculous amount but I need you to full comprehend how absolutely unhinged this decision really was. I will now allow you to witness this apocalyptic event c/o the hundreds/thousands of folks roasting the fella on Twitter.

Brief moment for me to tell you people who *may* wear these tiny slides in public.
- my batshit Great-Uncle, who once fell through our shed bc he was sitting on the large tree branch he was chainsawing off. Sitting on the end he was REMOVING.
- the retirees who frequent my local RSL.
- me when I’m taking out the garbage and don’t want to get my socks dirty.
- Also me when I’m going to the corner store for desperation Gaytimes and don’t want to get my socks dirty.
- A small baby that has dressed itself.
- A dog. Dogs can always wear funny shoes, and then you can film them running around like big hairy goobers.
TBH I can roast this look all I want, but we all know once Kanye does something then all the hypebeasts are going to follow suit – prepare for mass ‘gramming of sock/slide combos for the next 400 years until Kanye does some other equally batshit thing with his wardrobe.
PLUS this tweet sums up the absolute MONSTER level of publicity wisdom this couple has.
He absolutely knows what the fuck he’s doing with this shit. They’re Yeezy slides and now everyone is extremely aware of said Yeezy slides. Brilliant shit.
Although I deffo think he made the conscious decision to wear the slides too small not bc he wanted to encourage chat around the shoes themselves – I think he literally felt he was boss enough to make too-small shoes a fashion thing. He is that level of egotistical, you guys.
