Ye took us back to his Nike days with this "Vermilion" pair, which resembles his fabled "Red October” Air Yeezy 2 sneakers.

Ye, the artist formerly known as Kanye West, is known for his wild shoe designs. And chief among them are his Adidas Yeezy Foam Runners, a pair of slippers made partially from harvested algae that’s wrapped in a lightweight, unibody piece of EVA foam material.

The first Yeezy Foam Runner dropped back in 2020 in the “Ararat” color, but this “Vermillion” pair quickly stands out because it resembles one of Ye’s most iconic sneakers ever: the Nike “Red October” Air Yeezy 2 from 2014.

Like Kanye’s Yeezy Slides, what makes the Foam Runners so great (aside from how out-of-this-world they look) is that they can be a house shoe or you can just wear them out like any other every-day footwear that’s in your closet.

And yes, also like Adidas’ Yeezy Slides, the Foam Runners are extremely comfortable — thanks to that super light foam upper. So, whether you want to wear them to the airport or to a party, you’re going to have zero regrets.

The only downside if you want a pair of these is that you’re going to have to pay upward of $200 on the resale market, which isn’t too, too bad compared to their $80 retail cost.

Still, that’s a small price to pay to feel like you’re walking on clouds and... looking like an alien?
