Kanye West, who was recently crowned the King of Shoes, has debuted another limited-release style—the Yeezy 950 boot, available later today in select boutiques and Barneys stores, as well as Barneys.com (see the full list of retailers here). But there’s a catch, of course: You had to pick up a wristband last night at one of the stores in order to be granted access to the sure-to-sell-out boots today.
What can you expect from the actual boots? Well, they’re certainly unusual, as is Kanye’s style. Available in four colors, the unisex shoe is sort of like a cooler version of the duck boot—only monochromatic, and with a thicker heel. Specific prices are yet to be confirmed, but the shoes are said to range from $250 to $625. “I wanted something that felt like New York or Paris or Tokyo or Santa Barbara or Chicago—a worldliness and an ease,” West explained in a statement released yesterday. “I don’t want the clothes to be the life. I want the clothes to help the life.” And we’re not going to lie, these shoes look like they could do just that—especially with winter's harsh weather right around the corner.
