Kanye West is already responsible for one of the funniest shoe releases of 2021. Its Yeezy 450 pair is a knitted top with a toothed foam midsole, and nothing else – the sole determines the size of the shoe. But for his latest joke, Kanye is even going floppy. The new YZY KNIT RNR (Yeezy Knit Runner) is basically a fully knitted-leg sweater. It may still be Kanye’s weirdest shoe – but it’s totally a piece with his recent interests. The first color road, a mustard-tan combination called “Sulfur”, is set to land on September 23rd.
When the shoe picture was first leaked, social media users accused Kanye of stealing a Mickey Mouse kick. And, of course, net RNRs are really like high quality shoe boots. But a little more is happening here than meets the eye. Cut with shoe laces and cutouts and see what you mean: Knit RNR is basically similar to Kanye’s favorite foam runner – of course, this shoe brings out the foam for the knitting elements.
The shoe suggests that Kanye is increasingly interested in designing what we see as growing sneakers. Through the Yezi project, Kanye shifted from his initial experiments to more classic sneaker silhouettes: the three repetitions of the 700, QNTM and 500 are virtually annoying compared to the new Knit RNR. But it seems that Kanye has been working towards shoes like RNR since the first day of Yezi. What is Net RNR? The laces have been stripped, the top is swollen, and the only thing left now is nothing but a thin line. Even laces He seems like he can do without as an extra. Recent shoes like the Slide, 450 and Foam Runner are paving the way for the future without rabbit-ear lessons.
More generally, amorphous seems to be the newly defined aesthetic of Kanye’s entire design approach. Do you know what Blobby is and what kind of closures are lacking? Flagship product from the Yeezy x Gap collaboration, a jacket that has all the structures of a cloud. In this way, the net RNR canister is right in the current wheelhouse.
It should be noted that the shapeless jacket was the best seller for Gap. Even Canner’s less-traditional theatrical shoes, such as fan runners and slides, have become surprisingly hot items in the resale market. When originally 5 originally came out, it was a weird ball in the world of sneakers এবং and now it’s a top-10 selling shoe. Although Knit RNR looks (too) ridiculous now, Kanye has a track record of changing mass tastes to match his own.
