Unveiled on Instagram earlier today, Murakami tore off the toe and heel portion of the Yeezy Boost 350 V2, essentially turning them into flip-flops.
To add insult to injury, he also affixed patches of Smiling Flowers, his signature character, onto the defaced shoes.
In a second post, the artist himself is seen modeling the destroyed shoes-turned-sandals.

Would you wear these Yeezy sandals by Murakami? Let us know in the comments below.
