‘What are those?’


We know you’re keeping up with the Kardashians, but have you been keeping up with Kanye?

Kanye West took to Twitter Friday afternoon for a sneak peak of new YEEZY samples. Amongst the samples? YEEZY slides. However, Twitter users were quick to criticize the shoes and make hysterical comparisons.

Let’s take a trip down memory lane. Here’s seven things Twitter users are comparing the YEEZY slides to.

1. Crocs


Some argue that Kanye received his inspiration from these infamous foam clogs. As they saying goes, if Mondays were shoes, they’d be crocs.

2. Cupcake Liners

Unfortunately for Kanye, these slides might not be the icing on the cake for the new YEEZY collection.



Kanye is taking stepping on LEGOS to a whole new level.

4. Play-Doh


Play-Doh sales are spiking as YEEZY fans attempt to DIY the slides.

5. Pencil Erasers

The only thing these erasers are removing is an estimated $150 from your bank account.

6. Dish Sponge

Although Twitter users enjoyed poking fun at the slides, Kanye claims they are just a prototype.
