American footwear company Skechers is once again catching flak for creating three copycat versions of Kanye West and adidas Originals’ beloved YEEZY BOOST 350 V2 “Beluga” silhouette. The copies consist of two trainers and one dress shoe that boast Ye’s signature stripes on their respective uppers alongside the “Solar Red” streak on the side panels.
The variants were initially discovered by Twitter user @absrdst at an unspecified Skechers store. After the Brooklyn native posted it on the platform, all social media hell broke loose with users relentlessly trolling the label. “Skechers REALLY OUT HERE SELLING KNOCK OFF YEEZYS,” said @absrdst in the caption.
Check out the models above and sound off in the comments section below. Each pair is available for purchase for approximately $90 USD on Skechers’ official website. In related news, folks are using highlighters to create their own “Semi Frozen Yellow” YEEZY BOOST 350 V2s.
