Kanye’s Back on Twitter
Probably the biggest news from Saturday that isn’t particularly sneaker news, is that Kanye West is back on Twitter. He’s been MIA on social media for around 2 years, and now it looks like he came back from the dust just to throw shade at Nike. What a troll. His tweet has since been deleted, but as we all know, nothing is really forgotten on the internet. S/O to Yeezy Mafia for the screenshot.
We really hope that’s not just a one-time thing, like his Valentine’s Day-themed IG reappearance. He obviously felt the need to express how reminiscent the Nike Monarch is to his design! I mean seriously, if that unmistakable bright orange didn’t give off the Wave Runner vibes, the chunky sole would do the trick.
We See You, Don C
In other sneaker news, check out Don C flexing his latest Nike 312 Legacy sample for his collaboration with Jordan Brand. To us, the shoe looks like the bastard child of other Jordan shoes. But you can’t help feeling a little proud of the work of Kanye’s BFF. The IG photo shows that on the tongue, “Nike Air” branding was replaced with “Just Don”. So that’s a little bit of creativity there!
