Any lobsterman value his saltwater might let you know {that a} hoodie with denims tucked into Muck Boots is a fail-safe outfit. Certain, the look makes rather less sense in the event you’re the artist previously referred to as Kanye West and acting on stage at Rolling Loud—however then once more, you by no means know what waters Ye goes to wade into.

Whereas Ye’s lengthy favored workwear—hardy denim, canvas Carhartt coats, fight boots, a Dickies jacket to the Met Gala—he’s been leaning into some more and more aggro tactical footwear as of late. From his beloved Balenciaga Croc hybrid boots to the stubby Yeezy NSTLDs, he’s been rocking a silhouette that’s without delay sensible and cartoonish. (Fairly actually: the Twittersphere can’t cease likening him to Spongebob, which is a comparability Ye…might even enjoy?) Two weeks in the past, he wore what seemed like a pair of woodland-camo Muck Boots to the Louis Vuitton menswear show honoring Abloh.

However within the final week, he’s traded in his Balenciaga galoshes for one thing a bit extra all-weather: a pair of 17-inch tall, Vibram-soled Crimson Wing work security boots.

He wore them on stage, pulled up over his Demna-engineered Free Hoover jeans, throughout his Amazon-sponsored benefit concert with Drake final Thursday, after which once more whereas performing with Future at Rolling Loud in Los Angeles this previous weekend, and at last to Tyler the Creator’s new Golf Le Fleur store in Malibu.

It’s unclear if Crimson Wing nonetheless makes this specific model; regardless, they’re robust to seek out on-line. In case you’re available in the market for a pair, possibly verify your native army-navy retailer or out of doors gear store. That is what Ye himself would do, anyways.
