Kid Cudi’s First Sneaker Collaboration Is… Um… Weird
You may have heard the name Giuseppe Zanotti before. You know, like, in a 2 Chainz song. Giuseppe, a luxury footwear designer, has created the monstrosity you see above, inspired by none other than Kid Cudi. That’s premium red Nappa leather and white midsole in a futuristic, intergalactic silhouette. Think high-end space boots for #influential astronauts. There’s even Cudi branding on the tongue and, yes, VELCRO baby. Look for this absurd collab coming in the spring of 2015. Suggestions we’ve seen floating around Twitter so far as to what this shoe actually looks like: Marge Simpson’s snowsuit, an avant garde chair, and “some sort of pillow monster humping a sneaker.” And they’ll probably run $500 a pair.
