Save $ 895 by cutting pits in your socks, Yeezy fashion fans

, , ,

If you love Yeezy’s Season 2 collect, you might want to stock up on socks and a glue gun.

Rather than spend a small fortune on Yeezy S2 knit boots, die-hard fans opted for an affordable DIY alternative that basically merely requires cutting holes in your socks. Easy peasy, Yeezy.

It began when stylist Colette Emily created a Yeezy knit heel tutorial in March. To recreate the seem, only pull thin socks over stilettos and cut a hole in the sock to allow the heel to slip through. Then, stick several pieces of tread videotape to the sole of the shoe and paint the tape to match.

Consider it the logical alternative to the knit boots that retail for $895.

Shay Cherise, who goes by @thenuvogue on Instagram, adapted Colette’s tutorial and devised an approach that requires slightly less work. Rather than bother with tape and paint, Cherise simply stuck a sandpaper adhesive to the sole of her sock-shoes.

The DIY approach has since become popular and Yeezy fans have shared their own sock-heel creations.

If Yeezy Season 2 inspired women across the internet to cut up their socks, we look forward to the DIY masterpieces Yeezy Season 3 will bring.
