Here’s our breakdown of the inspirations behind the YEEZY Foam Runner.
The YEEZY Foam Runners were first spotted in July 2019, when North West — Kanye and Kim Kardashian’s oldest daughter — was rocking them. Earlier this year, some close-up prototype images surfaced the web.
Kanye has always been a trend-setter type of guy — think visvim FBTs and Nike Flyknit Trainers — but if you really think he had the original take on these shoes, think again. We breakdown the YEEZY Foam Runners’ Inspiration and Distant Relatives.
Crocs, most known for their Clog line, are the most recognized collection for the foam-shoe company. Do you think Kanye had some pics of these Crocs on his mood board?
For a more tactical approach on the Crocs Clog, here are the Merrell Hydro Mocs. Designed for days being spent in and around the water, these will keep your feet protected.
Last but not least, the Native Jefferson shoe. As a proud owner of two pairs, these are comfy and more fashionable for everyday wear.
Out of these 3 related shoes, which one do you think Kanye was most inspired by?
