    They look like old school reeboks/adidas mixed into KW for LV sneakers, I don't like them not because he's a douche bag, I just don't like them.

    I read on Perez that the release of these was going to be pushed back due to the economy...I take that with a grain of salt though. Unfortunately I am not a fan...the only ones that are bearable are the all white and all black ones. I'd honestly rather get a pair of Nike dunks!!

    i think the people who buy these are not looking at aesthetics as the dominating characteristic..

    they just want a piece of that kanye mystique...
    and the sort of showiness that goes along with Louis Vuitton...

    what are the price points for these?

    they're definitely targeting an urban market with lots of disposable income...
    like rap stars :innocent:

    i'd rather buy another pair of dunks too iLC

    i believe the launch was not pushed back and they're already all sold out.

    The pink platform one and the first and last ones are somewhere between $990 and $1140 USD, and the middle two are between $870 and $960 USD. I think that's from the Cut. I know they're already sold out, but I can't say I'm a fan.

    $1140 USD? for that? You can call me cheap.
    I would rather spend that money on something else.

    I hate them. And even if I liked them I would never ever pay a grand for sneakers... :innocent:

    But I can imagine they're sold out, I mean stick his name on a box of dog **** and it'll cause enough hype to sell out....

    I still can't believe why GQ named Kanye West and Justin Timberlake as one of "The Most Stylish Men". But oh well, why on earth should someone take a style advice from GQ.
