It's no secret that Kanye West is a large fan of his own every thing, but particularly his Adidas sneakers. (And why shouldn't he be—he intended them immediately after all.)
It's unusual that West measures out in shoes from other labels, but while his enjoy of Saint Laurent or Bottega Veneta boots is effectively-documented, his option to stage out in other brands' kicks is significantly less frequently the situation.
But yesterday, the man behind some of the most coveted sneakers of the final decade put his stamp of approval on a label he has almost nothing to do with. It's called Kahru, and it's a heritage brand from Finland that was founded over one hundred years ago. But truly, the fact that West wore a shoe from a different brand isn't what's most surprising here.
It's that the shoe, which is named the Kahru Fusion 2., is seemingly so far outdoors what we really feel like is his normal sneaker taste/the a single he's implemented in his own styles.
Other than the rumored Yeezy runners he wore not long ago, these kicks are a every thing his sleek and lightweight Yeezy Increase 350s arentŊ chunky working shoe with an earthy shade scheme. We've lengthy had a sneaking suspicion that West, who's been a vogue trendsetter since he initially received his major break in 2004, likes to train client tastes to align with his personal before dropping anything in the market himself. He did it with Yeezy Season clothes by wearing boat loads of camo, military surplus, and workwear in 2014, then later on with fight boots that inspired his own Yeezy Increase 750 sneakers and Yeezy Season 3 boots. So, this trend in direction of chunkier, far more colorful working sneakers may well really properly be a indicator of what's to come from Mr. West's approaching fashion projects.
