Kanye West, an obnoxious but talented rapper who is also very into fashion, just released a new pair of sneakers that he “designed” for adidas called the Yeezy Boost (pictured above). The high profile footwear rollout, that coincided with the start of Fashion Week on Thursday, included a runway show that was attended by Jay Z, Beyonce, Rihanna, and even the dark lord herself, Anna Wintour. Later that night, adidas threw a massive outdoor Kanye West concert in the Flatiron District to further hype the kicks.

Although the hip-hop impresario loves to boast how much more creative he is than everyone else, as Kicks Deals points out, there are over a dozen models of sneakers and shoes that look a lot like Kanye’s.

On social media, sneakerheads took their criticisms ever further and started a meme that nicely sums up the Yeezy Boost’s design:
