Kanye West discusses the negative consequences of choosing fame over family in ‘808s & Heartbreak,’ but the rapperpreneur has shown no signs of slowing down, as you can see from this line of cross-branded sneakers with luxury giant Louis Vuitton.

The Kanye West and Louis Vuitton sneakers come in a number of different colors, one of which features a bright fluorescent pink sole. They’ll be available in June. This collaboration has been met with mixed reactions from sneaker fanatics, who claim that the line marks the downfall of underground sneaker culture as it is swallowed up into the mainstream.
