From the Balenciaga Triple S Trainer to the Yeezy Wave Runner 700, chunky soled shoes have been catching on like wildfire. Kanye West didn’t hesitate to keep that trend going by designing his latest sneaker, the Yeezy Mud Rat 500.
According to Mashable, there is a White/Cream colorway that Kim K has been rocking lately, and there is a simple Gray colorway as well.
@KimKardashian shared an exclusive look at the YEEZY Mud Rat 500. Are you feeling these?

As you can see they’re quite voluptuous in the sole area and don’t really seem to have anything special going on with them.
Naturally, the Twitterverse reacted to the new design. Let's just say they're not really feelin' the Yeezy Mud Rat 500.
I could find those #mudrat500 sneakers at Salvation Army. Who in their right mind would buy those? Lol
Sorry not sorry. I can't get #jiggy with these #Yeezy #MudRat500 https://t.co/YP0hho96s3
Yeezy putting these ugly old asics lookin shoes out around same time as his other popular kicks, is like the Apple putting out the iPhone and a flip phone in the same year. #Mudrat500 https://t.co/y8KId4WZCz
The new #Yeezy shoes look nothing more then a sketchers redesign ???? #Mudrat500
Yeezy look like orthopaedic shoes for people with summer teeth. Summer here summer there. #Mudrat500 #KimKardashian #yeezy
Yeezy Mud Rats 500 look like the 'throwaways' of Payless. ???????? #yeezy #Mudrat500 #complex #payless #kanyewest https://t.co/ObPaXw0GFZ
I personally like the Mud Rat’s more than the Wave Runners because the Mud Rat’s give me that nostalgic value of Kobe Bryant’s Crazy 8, but I still won't be copping.
Are the Yeezy Mud Rat 500’s a cop or a drop for you? What do you think of them?
