Kanye West shoes debut in Paris

The self-proclaimed "Louis Vuitton Don" is stepping up his game and putting his money where his feet are.

At a recent Louis Vuitton show in Paris, Kanye West showed off one style from his new line, Kanye  LV. The sneakers, designed by the man himself, boast a monochomatic look with little flare aside from a quilted flap in the back, made especially for those times when you forget to hem your pants.

And just in case you doubt West's knowledge of shoes, a press release insists that he's seen more than you have in his day: "He says he has no idea how many shoes he owns, but he does know that he routinely needs to send shipments off to storage."

Save your allowances, folks: the shoes hit Louis Vuitton stores in June.
