What Do These adidas by Stella McCartney Clogs Remind You Of?
Did you think that the adidas Adilette Slide looks like a Yeezy Slide? Whether you did or not, Kanye West certainly did. He even went online to take aim at adidas' CEO Kasper Rørsted, saying that 'This shoe is a fake Yeezy made by adidas themselves.'
Now the slide's sibling – the clog – is the centre of attention, in particular the latest from the Stella McCartney x adidas crew. While there are many design points on these clogs that are unique to the shoe, there's also some parts that seem somewhat familiar. In particular, the ventilation holes in the upper give off some Yeezy Foa Runner vibes and the construction and shape of the clog lends itself to that of the Yeezy Slide. Besides that, the Stella McCartney clog possesses other features such as distinct branding and a high fashion elevated midsole – as seen on previous Stella McCartney x adi shoes.
With a creative and celebrity as prolific as West, his influence washes over the sneakerspace and fashion on the daily. So, is this just another high fashion clogcore moment, or in the words of the rapper, is this a case of 'blatant copying'?
West is yet to enter the chat on these latest Stella McCartney clogs. Keep it locked to SF for all the updates.,
