Adidas Yeezy Slide: the slippers signed by Kanye West

Leaving the house in slippers would have been unthinkable until a few years ago, while today it is not just a trend of the moment but a sign of lifestyle.

Kanye West knows this well, a forerunner not only in music but now also in fashion, who has cleared the use of slippers thanks to his innovative Yeezy Slides made in collaboration with Adidas.

But let's go back in time: it's 2018 when Kanye West shows up at the wedding of his friend 2Chainz with a decidedly unusual look. Combined with an apple green Louis Vuitton suit worn without a shirt, in fact, there are a pair of brand new Yeezy slippers with matching sock. For once the spotlight was not on his wife Kim Kardashian but on the rapper's feet. And let's not just talk about the choice of wearing a pair of slippers to a formal event or with an elegant dress but also about the wrong size, definitely too small for her foot.

A style mistake or a marketing strategy? It doesn't matter, because that "wrong" combination would have anticipated one of the strongest streetwear models of recent years. First received with distrust and a lot of criticism, at the time of the release in the spring of 2020 the Yeezy Slides were a great success and sold out in a few minutes. These slippers have taken hold in everyday life, away from catwalks or paparazzi, carried around the streets around the world.

What's your favourite colour?

Over time, the design of the Yeezy Slides has undergone many evolutions until it reaches the modern, minimal and innovative look, popular for him, her and also for the little ones. The Slides, composed of a single EVA Foam shell, include a large band that wraps the foot to offer immediate comfort. The unibody upper is devoid of any overlap or detail, with the exception of the adidas three-stripe logo engraved on the padded footbed. The slip-on rests on a sole characterized by large and flexible notches equipped with an efficient anti-slip technology.

How does it fit?

Its clean cut adapts to the shape of the foot and the blown EVA foam guarantees a soft and ultra-comfortable step. But unlike what you might think of the classic slipper model, the Yeezy Slide fits very tightly. Kanye West proved this, as anticipated before, who wore a size too small for his foot. If you don't want to make the same mistake, we advise you to choose an extra number, or, if you love a comfortable fit, add two sizes to your original.

How to combine them?

The Yeezy Slides are confirmed as a very versatile piece. You can use them in the pool or to avoid burning your feet on the sand of an exotic beach. As "home slippers" for those who love a more sedentary life or to enhance the urban look to show off on your hot days in the city.

With or without socks? For those who love freedom (not only of expression) can opt for a free fit leaving the foot "bare". The real challenge is for all lovers of the perfect sock-shoe combination: white or patterned socks like the tie-dye one, tone-on-tone or in contrast with the slipper, in terry cloth with the classic colored stripes or signed by the coolest brands of the moment : free space for creativity, there are no limits or rules but only a dose of irony and desire to dare.

The looks immediately take on an easy but refined touch, the right compromise between a careful and a casual combination, between order and creativity.

How to take care?

There are those who treat them as collector's items and those who would not want to take them off their feet, but taking care of these slippers is extremely simple for everyone: thanks to the construction in a single block without seams or embossed details, just pass a microfiber cloth soaked in water to remove stains or impurities and restore your Yeezy Slide to its natural color.
