Fans let musicians get away with a lot of bad behavior. Many have problems with the law or with substance abuse but Kanye West seems to have become the world leader in being a douche. The latest example is his $975 Yeezus Pony Hair Sneakers.

He rants on stage, makes questionable music videos, calls himself “Yeezus” all while publicly boasting of his own talent. He joined the ranks of Ray J and Kris Humphries when he got involved with Kim Kardashian. No matter what you think about Kim, Ray J and Kris can both be filed under “D” for douche.

Now to the sneakers. Oh, the horrible sneakers. Kanye’s latest tour sneakers are available now for a mere $975 from Maison Martin Margiela. They look like an old school pair Jordan Ones had a child with an aging Wookie. Pony hair* upper with velcro for the lace tying challenged.

*Note: Pony Hair does not come from ponies, horses or even from very small horses. It is an industry term used for unshaven cow, calf, or buffalo leather. I guess “Yeezus Cow Hair Sneakers” doesn’t have the same ring to it.

So cancel that Cabo vacation and get out your credit card and you too can be a douche. On sale now at tres-bien.com.
