A Strapping Lad
Kanye’s seen the future, and it is Velcro.
These Kris Van Assche ankle leather sneakers prompted his Yeeziness to title a post, “2009 is all about the straps! I know we’ve seen straps but this year it’s going to be crazy,” which moved us to battle stations.
As fashion predictions go, it’s pretty ominous, but hopefully we can dodge the horrible future Kanye foresees. This isn’t 1988, and he isn’t Michael Jackson, so let’s hope he forgets this one before the next tour.
If he’d really meant it, he probably would have typed it in all caps.
