No one could ignore the sight of newly platinum Kim Kardashian in her plunging Givenchy jumpsuit on Sunday, March 8, in Paris. And yet, right behind her, there was another fashion statement just begging to be discussed: Kanye West‘s mid-calf, high-heel boots.
The “Only One” singer, 37, donned the velvet stompers en route to the Givenchy fashion show—a shoe choice that at first went somewhat unnoticed, as they boasted the same black shade as the rest of his ensemble.
But never give up on the Internet! Since then, Twitter birds have taken to the social media platform to discuss the bold style choice. The rapper’s plush footwear has him being compared to Mary J. Blige, Rick James, and Shrek‘s Lord Farquaad (voiced by John Lithgow), to name a few.
