Love It? Hate It?

Love it? Hate it?
Kanye West and his favorite brand, Louis Vuitton will release the shoes above some time in June. West explains that the shoes were inspired by the movie “Dunes” and that “Most sneakers focus on the tongue, so I wanted to do something different.” But are buyers willing to pay $500+ to be different?

There is also speculation that Kanye West and Nike are working on a deal to release slightly more affordable shoes to the general public. He may have worn the prototype of the new Nike shoe during his recent Grammy performance.
