Louis Vuitton Don Kicks

Finally... I mentioned the fact that these were in the making a while back.
Click the picture to check out 'Ye's revealing of the shoe (whats up with Marc Jacobs' Kilt thing? slash Stephen Sprouse leggings... braveheart-chic)

Kanye has said that he was influenced by a jacket from the movie Dune, which had an oversized collar. I haven't seen the movie, but can completely imagine one of those large down jackets with their big puffy, almost life jacket-like collars. I like where he has gone with the upper half of the shoe, especially with the "cuff holder/Dune collar" piece at the back and the high-placed lace that seems to be an allusion to the basketball shoe. However, The bottom half looks terribly Air Force One...ie. that generic sneaker look. Either way, I look forward to seeing more creativity stemming from K to the.
