•The abstract-looking shoes sparked confusion among users, as it’s not immediately clear what kind of textures the shoes have or how they’re worn
•West is known for making unique style statements through the Yeezy brand, a line of shoes in collaboration with Adidas
Kanye West’s Yeezy line of sneakers, a collaboration with Adidas, is known for its eclectic, minimalistic, and oftentimes futuristic-looking styles.
The rapper’s latest shoe design, however, seems to be leaving people especially baffled.
On Saturday, West tweeted a picture of a pair of abstract white shoes, writing: “YZY D Rose coming soon.”
Since West shared the picture of the new shoes, fans have been speculating over how they’re actually worn. Some are also comparing the design to food items from thinly sliced potatoes on skewers to spaghetti noodles.
Some commenters also compared the shoes to a fish skeleton, among an assortment of other objects.
At the time of writing, neither the Yeezy Supply website nor the Adidas website has published launch information for the shoes West shared on Saturday.
Representatives for the Yeezy brand did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment regarding the potential launch date or price range of the YZY D Rose.
In the past, other renditions of Yeezy shoes have sparked confusion among West’s fans, critics, and followers on social media.
In September 2019, Yeezy launched the “foam runner,” a slip-on clog that led to an onslaught of memes as people compared it to a more expensive version of Crocs or a bicycle helmet.
West also previously launched a collection of grooved foam and rubber “slides” for adults and children, which Kim Kardashian West described as being “rubbery and so comfy.” The slide-on shoes were also met with criticism, with one Twitter user comparing them to “jail sandals.”
