Here’s Why Some People Think Yeezys Are So Ugly

A significant number of fashion-conscious people do not understand the hype behind Yeezy’s, because most of them are objectively ugly.

The Yeezy Brand was launched by Kanye West, now legally known as Ye, in 2009. 

Take the Yeezy Foam Runners as an example. They make Crocs slip-ons look better. Yet, people are spending upwards of $100 on these crimes against fashion. 

Why Yeezys are Unattractive

Yeezys have a distinctive and often polarizing style. Some people appreciate their unique design elements, such as the chunky silhouette and avant-garde features, while others may find them unappealing. 

The following are the reasons some people find Yeezys unattractive, as per many customer review platforms:

  • Bulky Silhouette: Most Yeezys sport a chunky and exaggerated silhouette, which is both ugly and unproportional. 
  • Limited Versatility: Certain Yeezy designs may be challenging to style with various outfits due to their distinct aesthetic, limiting their versatility in different fashion contexts.
  • Unconventional Design: Yeezys often come with unconventional design elements, such as unique patterns, textures, and materials, which may not go with the tastes of some people.
  • Bold Colorways: Some Yeezy color schemes are quite bold and may be perceived as garish or loud by people who prefer modest or understated footwear.
  • Trend-driven Design: While Yeezys have garnered significant popularity, some people view them as overly hyped or trendy, leading to skepticism about their actual design merit. 
  • High Price Tag: Yeezys often come with a high price tag, which to some people is not justifiable because of the lazy and unappealing designs. At some point, Kanye West filed a lawsuit over knock-off foam runners that were being sold in Walmart stores for about $24. 

Kanye West’s Anti-semitic Comments

Some of the people who previously liked Yeezy’s started viewing them as unattractive following Kanye West’s anti-semitic comments on social media towards the end of 2022. At the time, he said he would soon go “death con 3 on JEWISH PEOPLE.” 

The remarks resulted in Twitter permanently suspending his account, shortly after it had been reinstated following Elon Musk’s takeover.

Since then he has doubled down in his anti-semitic remarks, which has resulted in many brands and celebrities distancing himself from him. 

The hate speech against Jews was enough for some people to start finding Yeezy’s unattractive and to stop wearing them. 

Adidas Severed Ties with Ye

Following his racist comments, Adidas terminated its partnership with Ye. However, the company did continue to sell the unsold Yeezy’s, and, last July, it announced that it got orders worth over $500 million.

It also said that proceeds from the Yeezys would be donated to organizations that fight racism and antisemitism. 

In November 2022, Adidas made it clear that it owned the rights to Ye’s line of sneakers. That statement implied that Adidas would produce new Yeezys in the future. However, for those of us who think Yeezys are ugly and a crime against fashion, there is some good news. 

During the company’s 2023 second quarter’s earnings call, Adidas CEO Bjorn Gulden said that there were no plans of “taking Yeezy designs and transferring them to Adi.”

The Ugliest Yeezys Ever Produced

Hands down, the Yeezy Foam Runners are the ugliest Yeezy produced. Others include: 

  • Yeezy Boost 750: First released in 2015, these boots look like what you would make if you were abandoned in a forest without shoes. 
  • Yeezy 450 Cloud: It is like Ye was wearing socks, stepped into a puddle of some thick liquid and took the socks to Adidas and asked them to make a shoe from that. 
  • Yeezy Slides: On social media, there are all kinds of jokes of how these slip-ons look like the slippers people are given in prison. Why people spend over $50 on these ugly slippers is surprising.
