Twitter Roasts Kanye’s Yeezy Shoe Sketches That Look Like ‘Volcanoes’

Kanye West took to Twitter yesterday and teased some designs of what he labeled as “Yeezy 2019.” The rough sketches were, well, very rough.

Fans got a preview of seven new styles, including a basketball silhouette, seen in a series of drawings he shared on the social media network. Some observers joked that his doodles looked like they were drawn by his toddlers with Kim Kardashian.

‘Ye has never claimed to be a great illustrator — just look to the drawings to see why. He showed designs for: 700v3, 451, 500v2, 350v3, 1050, Terrex and Basketball.

Some users compared the sneaker art to “Ice skates” and “volcanoes,” with one tweet referring to them as “Volcaneezys.” Much of the drawings resembled snow-topped mountains and blobs that lacked a refined sense of structure or contrast. “At least one of them is a hat,” someone responded.

More zingers followed, including a tweet that read: “We want clown shoes,” followed by another user who added, “And bowling shoes too.”

Though West released the Yeezy 500 in “Utility Black” on July 7, the Adidas partner seems to be keen on getting his followers ready for what’s in the pipeline. With the jeers, also came some cheers. One of his fans advised: “If you making a basketball shoe… make sure there’s just as much ankle/sole support as there will be swaggy-ness.”

Below, see what the rest of Twitter had to say about his latest work.
