If You're Lucky Enough to Bag a Pair of Yeezys, Here's How to Wear Them

Kanye West's Yeezy trainers are like the Birkin bag of the sneakers world—a collector's piece that requires true dedication to get hold of, as they always sell out at record speed. Kanye West and Adidas announced the collaboration in 2013, and four years later, these are still trainers that sneakerheads will spend serious money on. A pair of the monochrome cloth Zebra Yeezys will currently cost you £1011 on Vestiaire Collective. There are a handful of VIPs, however, who have Kanye in their contact list, so they can skip the notorious Yeezy queues. The trainers have an impressive celebrity fan club beyond the Kardashian-West-Jenner family, as the likes of Karlie Kloss, Gigi Hadid and Hailey Baldwin have been spotted in the trainers. So if you are lucky enough to get ahold of a pair for yourself, here's how to style them according to the A-list.

Scroll through the gallery below to see how Gigi Hadid, Bella Hadid and more style their Yeezys.

Style Notes: You might think that Yeezy trainers can only be worn with leggings or a Kylie Jenner–esque bomber-and–skinny jean combination, but Karlie Kloss dressed up her black Yeezy Boosts with a grey high-waisted maxi skirt, white cropped blouse and green trench coat.
