Kim Kardashian was most likely just being a supportive wife when she sported a pair of the new adidas Yeezy Mud Rat 500s shoes via a social media post. Sneaker Twitter caught wind of the sneakers and have furiously slandered the Mud Rats in a variety of hilarious ways.
The Mud Rat 500s have some of the same aesthetic as West’s other recent shoe designs, going for a clunky, thick-soled look versus the sleek styles commonly seen in sneakers today. With the shoes aimed for a Spring 2018 debut, Kim K got the hype machine going early with the Instagram photo but the jokes at the sneaker’s expense have been nothing short of relentless.

Are Kanye’s new Mud Rat 500s an expensive knock-off of $14.99 Walmart dad shoes?

The Yeezy 500 are trash. If you like them then you’re for sure a hypebeast.

So if I break my foot, I’ll be rocking shit that looks better than the Mud Rats? Probably cheaper too?
