Maison Martin Margiela's 'Yeezus Tour' shoes, though, come at a hefty price

There are many words that come to mind when considering Kanye West. Confident. Creative. Passionate. Dramatic. And of course stylish. Whether it’s something as outlandish as a leather Givenchy kilt or as simple as a pair of ‘shutter shades,’ when Kanye rocks something, people take notice. During his most recent tour, the Yeezus tour, the rapper wore a slew of pieces by French luxury label Maison Martin Margiela, including a show stopping head enclosing mask, but what people seemed to take most note of were what he wore on his feet.

For several looks during the tour, and at a few events he attended after, Kanye West wore a pair of eye-catching high-top sneakers, designed exclusively for him by Maison Martin Margiela. Fashion blogs questioned whether the sneakers would be made available to the public for much of the tour, and at long last the label has decided to acquiesce. The sneakers, which are covered in gray pony hair and feature a gum-sole bottom and a wide velcro strap, are currently being sold in limited quantities for just north of $900. In addition, two alternate styles of the shoe are being sold, a black leather sneaker and an ice blue colored one. If you’re interested in purchasing a pair, however, you better move fast, as several retailers have already sold out. So far, there is no word on if the sneakers will be restocked.
