Sasquatch, Godzilla, King Kong, Loch Ness Monster, goblin, ghoul, zombies... Question: what do they share in common? Well, they’re all as monstrous as whoever’s responsible for these Yeezy/Balenciaga bootlegs.
News of the bastardisation come from New York Times music critic Jon Caramanica, who bought the sneakers and posted them to Instagram in an infinitely disappointing unboxing gallery.
The rip-offs' vibe is Triple S heavy. Apart from trying to pilfer hype from the Yeezy name, they have nothing to do with Kanye’s adidas range — except maybe the fact that they’ll make stern sneaker purists look to the floor and shake their heads.
All that’s left is to see how blasphemous these look on-foot. We’ll let you know if Caramanica ever lets them near his feet.
