Kanye West Says His Sneaker Critics Are Racist

By HHL Editors

While Kanye West's adidas Yeezy Boost 350 model was met with long lines, its design also got its fair share of criticism.

In an interview with ShowStudio's 'In Camera' this morning, 'Ye dismissed the negative talk about the kick as racism.

"They saw the 350s and acted like they didn't like them because they’re racist," he said.
Alrighty then. West also discussed the obvious appeal of the 350s.

"We sell shoes people want to line up for because we put love in them. "I designed that shoe, didn't I?" he said later. "I didn’t see somebody else's shoes getting lined up for"
And it wouldn't be 'Ye if he didn't make at least one analogy between himself and an all-time great.

"There’s a time when, you know, when Michelangelo... I'm sure there were people who were sculpting better than him. But he made David," he said. "Is there a time where [you] can go on the Internet and find a shoe that people want more than my shoes? Well go fuck yourself then if it isn't, and don't ask me no stupid shit like that again."
This isn't the first time West has compared himself to Michelangelo, BTW.
