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.
