Kanye West and football, not really two things that go hand-in-hand. But thanks to footwear company Red Ribbon Recon and blog Kicks to the Pitch, a pair of his trainers have been made into football boots.
A pair of Kanye's Adidas 'Yeezy Boost 350s' have been kitted out with studs from a pair of Adidas' Ace 15.1 boots. They will not be made available for general sale, thankfully.
The concept design, which has been put on show at the Copa Basel art exhibition at the Art Basel Miami gallery, certainly are something different, but we are not sure how effective they would be during a game.

Their woolen exterior would offer very little protection heading into a tackle and there would be metatarsal injuries galore if they were ever commissioned.
Lionel Messi and David Beckham, two of Adidas' big-name football stars, have worn many different shapes and styles on their feet during their careers, but these would definitely be a stretch too far.
However, we still get the feeling that, if these were to hit the shelves, they would sell like hotcakes. After all, this is the Kanye West who once charged £100 for a plain white t-shirt.
Thankfully, this is a concept that is never likely to become a reality, and maybe that is for the best.
However, the boots are given a run for their money by the equally terrible Serafino 4th EDGE that encourage people to toe-poke the ball.
Although, Harry Redknapp is a 'fan'.
