The 5 ugliest Yeezys on the market today
In a world full of lies, here’s the truth: Almost every pair of Yeezys are ugly.
Last Friday, The root written about Kanye West has filed a lawsuit against counterfeit Yeezy Foam Runners made by third-party sellers that have appeared on the shelves of Walmart stores. This raises some very, very important questions:
1. Why would Kanye want to appropriate these monstrosities? It’s bad enough that their name is attached to them, but taking legal action for Great Value brand fakes seems like a battle not worth fighting.
2. Why would Walmart sell them? They don’t do it anymore, but why consider it?
3. WHO would buy them? Like, who looks at a pair of these shoes – fakes or not – and thinks “Yeah, I wanna look like I have Megatron feet”?
4. Why do we keep letting Kanye Omari West get away with this?
Obviously, there is a very strong market for the Yeezy line as a whole. Bloomberg reported in March West’s sneaker business with Adidas was valued at $ 3.2 billion. If you love Yeezys and are one of the people who helped make it a billion dollar brand, none of this is meant to be a blow to you or your personal taste. You like what you like and wear what you wear.
All I’m saying is that I personally don’t understand the appeal of Yeezys. Because, as mentioned before, a lot of them are ugly. Ugly dictionary definition. Quato of Total recall ugly. Ugly “ugly, they don’t have a lousy alibi.”
It’s like that.
