Yeezy Mafia on Thursday revealed Kanye West’s latest concoction in footwear: the Yeezy Foam Runner. Or, as social media calls them, the “Yeezy croc.”

The shoe, slated for a 2020 release, made its debut on the feet his daughter, North, earlier this month. It’s been given the “Yeezy croc” moniker for apparent similarities to the Croc-branded slip-on. There’s no news on whether the clog will drop under the Adidas umbrella or as a Yeezy standalone design.

Crocs’ popularity, to the chagrin of many, is here to stay. Long a celebrity favorite, Post Malone even came out with a Croc design of his own last year.

Of course, Twitter is having a field day with Ye’s newest look.

Aside from the jokes on the shoes, folks also understand how the gimmick usually works, as the “Yeezy croc” will (likely) fly off shelves once the drop date arrives.
