Kanye West has had a tumultuous relationship with Nike. While his foray into the sneaker game started with Nike the relationship soured over creative differences. Since then, however, Kanye has built the Yeezy brand in partnership with Adidas making it one of the most sought-after shoes on the market. His Yeezy 700 Waverunner, in particular, has changed the sneaker game shifting consumer appeal to the more chunky, "dad" shoes. Not to be outdone, the chunky dad shoe aesthetic has been picked up by Balenciaga, Louis Vuitton, and of course Nike.
Nike is set to release their latest dad shoe with the M2K Techno which drops May 19th. The news of this shoe caught the eye of Kanye, who hopped on Twitter for the first time in forever to share a pic of the shoe captioned by, "YEEZY 700 VIBES" accompanied by the "smh" and laughing emojis.
