Kanye West’s new Yeezy slides have instantly been slammed by Snoop Dogg as the veteran rapper compared them to prison slippers.

We all have to agree that slides just don’t look good, don’t we?

I have a pair, sure, because they’re comfy and sometimes your feet get too hot in slippers around the house, but the roadman vibe of wearing them outside of the house with white socks just does not fly.

I had to get Hunter slides, mind. I couldn’t bear to go full road and get an Adidas pair or something.

Anyway, everyone’s after sliders and with that, Kanye West decided to add some to his Yeezy line. We’ve seen a few iterations as it is, with most people taking the piss out of them, but it’s his new children’s line that’s garnering unwanted attention at the moment.

Looking pretty much like an open-toed Croc, the new kids’ Yeezy slide is an acquired taste, that’s for sure, and that’s mostly because they look shit and will probably set you back a small fortune.

They were shared to Instagram by Kanye’s wife, Kim Kardashian, who wrote:

New Yeezy slides for Kids OMG. They are so cute, so fresh. They’re like rubbery and so comfy.

Nothing wrong with bigging up your husband’s endeavours (unless you’re Rose West), but longtime Kanye naysayer Snoop Dogg chimed in, saying the new slides look like prison slippers.

The 48-year-old rapper wrote:

She been getting dudes out of jail now he gone sell jail slippers. W. T.F. None of my bidness

Firm but fair.

Interestingly, that app that everyone’s talking about that wants you to pay £20-a-month thinks I look like Snoop Dogg.

I don’t.

Not even young Snoop. Ridiculous.

Do kids really need Yeezys? Really?!

am I so out of touch? no it's the children who are wrong
