When it came down to the shoes, other photos show that the “Can’t Tell Me Nothing” artist completed his look with brown boots. The silhouette ran up along his calves and thick outsole with a rugged heel for greater comfort and traction.

West favors futuristic and utilitarian footwear styles. The record producer often wears his own sneakers, clogs and boots from his Yeezy line. Aside from his own brand, he’s also worn Air Jordan sneakers in the past. In recent months, West’s style has shifted to feature work, combat and hunting boots from brands like Dryshod and Viron. Aside from his own Yeezy brand with Adidas, West has also collaborated with Gap and Nike during his career.
