The enigmatic rapper whipped out some new kicks at Paris Fashion Week and they are something else

Kanye West is no stranger to doing strange s**t and his newest footwear design proves it once again. The futuristic-looking shoe is unlike anything you’ll see on the streets at the moment and we’re not sure if that’s a good thing or not. Featuring a wild outsole that looks like something between a Flintstone’s prop and some covenant architecture from Halo 2, the so-called Yeezy 451 is turning heads and getting people riled up on Twitter.

Even though it looks brand new, rumours of this silhouette have been circling since 2018 when a number of Kanye’s prototype sketches appeared online. The crude images showed a number of Yeezy models that have since been released, including the Yeezy 700 v3 and the 350 v3.

The new 451s look far and away like the craziest sneakers coming out of Kanye’s billion-dollar adidas brand. Apart from the sawtooth outsole, the sneakers feature an upper similar to a hiking shoe, breathable mesh lining and thick laces that look more aesthetically placed than functional. It is unclear whether these shoes will see a release any time soon, but we may know more in the coming days as Kanye prepares to display Yeezy season 8 in a surprise show at Paris Fashion Week.
