Take a look at Kanye West’s Balenciaga look
Kanye West has previously worked with Balenciaga Creative Director Demna and appeared to be in a good mood as he posed for pictures with Offset. The 30-year-old rapper later shared the picture on his Instagram Story. He also posed with Anna Wintour in the busy lobby and signed a few autographs for his fans as he left.
The rapper and “Donda” hitmaker donned a full-fledged Balenciaga fit, which included the chunkiest pair of boots that he has worn till date. The Balenciaga Spring ’23 boots flaunt a heavy rubber structure joined by a swollen toe box and laces resting on top of a hefty lug sole, according to reports.
Ye completed his get-up with black denim, a black loose-fitting T-shirt, a brown hoodie and a heavy black bomber leather jacket. He was pictured with his hood up for the occasion.
How did the fans react to his massive boots?
“Cartoon feet,” “Not Ye looking like those 00’s Mattel Rescue Heroes action figures in ’em boots,” and “them boots can’t be real” are some of the reactions that Ye’s stompers garnered. These Frankenstein boots have also previously been showcased during Balenciaga’s latest runway presentation, along with an Adidas collaboration and other chunky takes by Triple S kicks.
