Kanye West still sports the big beard he’s had for months, but he’s now sporting a new ‘do’ – which includes a shaved cross on the back of his head.
The GOOD Music founder was spotted with the holy new addition on Monday, May 15, amid more public outings lately. A few days prior, Yeezy was seen walking around Los Angeles with his wife Bianca Censori – while wearing foot-to-knee padding.
Naturally, this prompted comments online, including WWE wrestler Matt Cardona clowning around at Ye for his “kicking.”
“Kanye wears kickpads now?!” he wrote on Instagram. “He looks like an Indy worker now. Does it come after THE INDY GOD?! Be a Kanye man…come on don’t be scared…you’re running away from Broski…that’s what I heard!!!”

Despite the criticism of her shoes, it looks like the item may soon be released to the public. Last week, it was revealed that Kanye West’s Mascotte Holdings Inc. applied the “YZY SOCK SHOES” trademark.
In documents filed on May 4, Ye offered a brief description of his latest garment, writing, “Socks; leather-soled socks,” although a proposed retailer was not disclosed.
Talk to Business in vogue Back in October, Kanye West opened up about how he currently sees himself in the same vein as George Lucas and Quincy Jones in the fashion world.
“You know, specifically in this fashion context, I see myself more as a George Lucas than a fashion designer,” he said at the time. “I work with real, real, real fashion designers.
“Like Shayne, like Demna, like Riccardo Tisci… My main job is to be a producer, in the sense of Quincy Jones. Who takes a symphony of ideas and then plays a song.
The news comes just after adidas announced plans for its stock Yeezy shoes, following months of debate over the fate of millions of unsold shoes.
At its annual shareholders’ meeting on Thursday (May 11), the German athletics and footwear brand – which cut ties with Ye last year over his anti-Semitic remarks – revealed that speaking with several non-governmental organisations, even destroying the inventory of the now defunct brand, was among the ideas for getting rid of unsold sneakers. However, the company ultimately opted for a more humanitarian route.
“Burning those shoes can’t be the solution,” CEO Bjorn Gulden said. “What we’re trying to do now, over time, is sell off parts of that inventory and donate money to organizations that are helping us that have also been hurt by Kanye’s statements,”
However, details of the company’s plan – like to whom, when and how many shoes will be sold – were not shared.
