Sneakers
From the ground up

Last Friday’s YEEZY Boost 350 V2 “Cream White” drop was a cop-at-all-costs affair for sneaker customizers and doodlers everywhere.

Undeniably the cleanest YEEZY so far, the flourish-free tonal white colorway and matching Boost unit represents the sneaker equivalent of a blank canvas. Throw in the pen-friendly Primeknit upper and you’re more or less looking at a personal invitation from Mr. West to channel that inner Basquiat and let loose creatively.

Unsurprisingly, Instagram has seen a flood of posts from personalizers, each coming up with their own idiosyncratic designs in a bid to stand out from the pack. Some are professional; some less so. But rather than judge, we instead applaud anyone fearless enough to go to town on a $220 pair of creps with such gay abandon.

Below, we’ve rounded up some of the most striking looks to have caught the eye so far. And if we’ve missed you out, be sure to showcase your efforts on Insta with the tag #HSkicks.

Keep it koi.
