    They are leather but really do feel like very smooth rubber. I actually prefer the patents for rain/every day wear. Much easier to clean.

    That is true, now that i think about it, I think the rubberized uppers might actually be harder to clean. Looks real clean though, especially with the white sole.


    Also, anyone can identify what Kanye is wearing? My first guess is the Raf Simons buckle sneakers but I am not sure if that has a zipper inside, plus from other angles it doesn't seem to have enough buckles.

    And for SQ, he's wearing a Prorsum peacoat with a removeable shearling.

    i think kanye is 5'8, but is beck really 5'7? cause that would make me feel better about being 5'7 too [​IMG] the shoes really look like the new McQueens, but theres no buckle to them.... but the side zip and everything looks to be about the same [​IMG] [​IMG] http://forwardforward.com/fwd/Displa...oduct=AMCQ-MZ5 heres a better picture of the shoes [​IMG]

    Thought about that too but yup, no buckles those plus the one Kanye is wearing actually has zippers on both sides. I think those McQueens only has them on the outer side.
