From Louis Vuitton backpacks and polos to trainers and high-priced sweats, Kanye’s style evolution has inspired many extravagant purchases. From Yeezy’s merch to his sneaker collabs, everything he touches is met with extreme hype, and often a price tag to match.
Jazerai Allen-Lord posted a pair of pastel Adidas Adilette slides she received from Kanye’s stylist and her former business partner, according to Hypebae. The slides were only produced as a sample. Yep, a rarity at its finest.
It turns out these slides were more than just a pair of sandals. After her Yeezy slides went viral, Jazerai took to her blog to write about love lost and the role Kanye West played in her journey of self-discovery. (My God, it’s a good read. Read it, here.)
Frugal fans of Mr. West know how to recreate the aesthetic for less, whether by wearing some of his favorite lower-priced brands, like Champion, Carhartt, and Alternative Apparel, or just grabbing a couple camo tees straight from Gildan.
In this case, might we suggest the OG Adidas Adilette? They’re only $45 and what’s a summer without a fresh pair?
