Never has the struggle been more real. At least two models struggled with their heels during Kanye West’s Yeezy Season 4 show at Roosevelt Island on Wednesday, September 7, and their attempt to carry on the show was medalworthy.
The show, which started more than an hour and a half late, featured a bevy of models clothed in tan and black ensembles strutting their stuff down a white catwalk through the park.
At one point during the production, a model clothed in a black hooded jacket and thigh-high boots almost lost control while attempting to wobble along in her broken heel.

“Something is wrong #YeezySeason 4,” one person tweeted, along with video of the model struggling to take each step. Bruce Pask, the men’s fashion director of Bergdorf Goodman, eventually came to her rescue, and helped escort her down the runway.

Model Amina Blue also struggled in her shoes. The blonde attempted to walk for a bit in her heels before she gave up and took them off.

“When you find out you not getting paid for #Yeezyseason4,” a jokester tweeted along with a clip of Blue taking off her shoes midshow, while another added: “The moment Amina Blue gave up #Yeezy.”
The internet’s reaction to the wobbling models on Wednesday caused even West’s sister-in-law Kylie Jenner to chime in. “Her heel broke. It’s not her fault,” the 19-year-old makeup maven, who attended the event in booty shorts, responded to a viewer on Twitter about the model in the black boots.
For the record, Blue, who also starred in Tyga’s “1 of 1” music video, finished the show, but she came back out in a pair of wobble-free Yeezy sandals.
