If you need Kanye West‘s seal of approval, then head over to the sky-high priced pages on Amazon where you can get a hold of some Yeezys. Go ahead — if you’ve got a spare $5000 lying around for your Yeezy Boosts. But if you want to walk the walk, not just talk the talk, about the maddening consumerist culture we live in, check the cool-looking Tianyuqi Men’s Walking Gym Sneakers. It’s hardly a stretch to call the Tianyuqi the coolest looking $10 sneaker in the world. Yes, there are some people who don’t believe that’s even a category, cool $10 sneakers. There are sneakerheads who believe any shoe you can get for ten bucks must be a stale jalopy of a kick. But it’s not so, and the design folks at Tianyuqi have created proof. Check it out:
Both the men’s and women’s Tianyugi versions are a superlight mesh cotton blend with a rubber sole. Are they going to last forever? No. But let’s repeat something critical here: these sneakers are $10 — and people will stop you on the street and ask you where you got them. Even the comparable Champion brand walking shoes and the stylish Yilan lightweights are expensive by comparison — even if the Yilan styles are only a little more than $20. Want somebody wearing the latest Air Jordans to ask you about your shoes? Pick up a pair of Tianyugis. Now all the Tianyugis need is a shout out from @SoleCollector. Below: The sporty pink Yilan.
