In images shared by Yeezy Mafia today, the latest Yeezy shoe was revealed — and it doesn’t look like anything Kanye West has put out before.
Dubbed the Foam Runner, the newest design has a cloglike appearance, with a perforated midsole and a slip-on silhouette.
Twitter was quick to point out the similarities between the shoe and a pair of Crocs’ classic rubber clogs. One tweeter was quick to dub the style “The Yeezy Croc” and netizens didn’t stop there.
One user took issue with the shoes construction, writing: “It’s Just a piece of 3D printed s***.”
“These Yeezy Crocs are ugly monster looking shoes. They look like a Crocodile chewed on them then spit them out,” read another tweet.
Another netizen posted a side-by-side comparison of the Yeezy Foam Runner with photos of Post Malone in his Crocs collab and country singer Blake Shelton in a pair of black rubber clogs.
While Twitter mostly compared the shoes to Crocs, someone thought they more closely resembled a colander.
Some Twitter users, noting the hype that Yeezy drops typically generate, said any hate on the Foam Runner is unlikely to last.
“Twitter, Today: LMAOOOO Yeezy Crocs these s*** trash who would wear these ugly a** shoes,” read one tweet. “Twitter, Release Day: didn’t get my Yeezy Crocs guess i’m gonna have to pay $428 for them on the secondary market.”
“Everyone hating on yeezy crocs rn but lets see what happens when they drop,” another post read, complete with an eye roll emoji.
The shoe is reportedly slated for release sometime in 2020, with the price point to be announced.
