Kanye West and Marc Jacobs Unveil New Shoe
If it’s not drama, it’s not Kanye.
The hopeful fashion intern took a few giant steps ahead over the past few days, hitting inaugural balls for President Barack Obama then jetting off to Paris for Louis Vuitton’s menswear show.
Was he trying to grab some face time with Marc Jacobs to expedite his coffee-getting application?
Quite to the contrary, Kanye was there to unveil his shoe collaboration with the tattooed fashion king.
“I was inspired by the movie Dune because, as you know, I love sci-fi,” West, 31, told Women’s Wear Daily (who apparently knows how much he loves science fiction).
The result is a blood red shoe with a faded-but-omnipresent Vuitton canvas and super flexible, lightweight rubber detail and even a tongue on the back.
Which is the only tongue you can expect from Kanye, by the way.
