this is so awesome, the sun pales in the presence of the Sun King.
“swagger on a hundred thousand trillion”
If I had more time, I’d use excessive space-bar and shift keys to create a Guillaume Apollinaire poem to show my appreciation.
But, I will say….I love Ye’s LV sneakers. They’re simple enough….and not too weird just for the sake of being weird. He says the back heel is a tribute to the incredible costumes (namely the collars of the costumes) in the David Lynch-directed 1984 movie DUNE (which was written by Frank Herbert [edited out because I didnt check first and I have a cold and I'm grumpy]). Which makes me happy because I love DUNE. but which makes me irritated because…I love the movie DUNE and don’t need it being re-sassied into a Kanye shoe. But its better than making a shoe inspired by your Bentley or your bong I guess. Also, I’ll take sci-fi fashionisto tributes any day over slain-civil-rights-nickname-improv. (Although, I get the Coming To America reference.)
Wonder if they’ll come in ladies sizes….eh…its a recession. I dunno.
