Just after Kanye West was joining forces with adidas over a year ago, Kim Kardashian shared a look at several of their family’s matching sneaker lineups. One lineup that caused a stir was the then-trio’s batch of “Red October” Air Yeezy 2s.
Kanye and Kim’s pair were pictured, along with a toddler sized pair made for their daughter North. Presumably, the youngster’s sneaker was custom made with a foam injection mold process, similar to how Crocs are made.
Recently, designer Jeff Staple shared yet another look at the toddler pair, featuring a scaled-down take on the adult size’s heel molding, textured quarter panel and midfoot strap. Check out the crib-sized foam injected sneaker below, made with a surprisingly great level of detail.
