Yeezy Mafia tweeted on Monday (July 11), “HOW SULFUR FEELS YOU SO FAR?”, to which Greggs replied, “Two sausage rolls in less than a multipack.”
This prompted many responses to the post, with one person tweeting, “Just put it in the oven to heat up the loool.”
Another person added, “Whatever you do, don’t chew the shoes,” while a third wrote, “Kanye taking them vegan?” Comparisons have also been made to Cornish pasties and Crocs.
The Yeezy 450 Sulfur shoe was announced in May and features a unique design in tonal cream. It has a one-piece Primeknit upper with cuffed bands around the ankle and an EVA foam outsole. It has a retail price of $200 (£170).
Last month, West called out Adidas about their recently released Adilette 22 slide sandals, saying the shoe was “a fake Yeezy made by adidas themselves.”

“I no longer stand for this blatant copying,” West wrote in a now-deleted Instagram post. “This is for anyone who wants to express themselves but feels they can’t because they’re going [lose] their contract or be called crazy.
West goes on to say that the shoes “represent the disrespect people in power have for talent” before describing them as “a fake Yeezy.” West ends the caption by telling Adidas CEO Kasper Rørsted to “come talk to him” directly.
Elsewhere, West has a feature on Cardi B’s new single “Hot Shit,” from the rapper’s upcoming album.
The track, which was first confirmed during a commercial at the 2022 BET Awards, was produced by hip-hop juggernaut Tay Kieth. Thereupon, Cardi brings her signature bravado before welcoming Lil Durk and West for their own flow-switching verses.
In an interview with Zane Lowe after the single’s release, Cardi described West as “an amazing, sweet person.” “I wish many people [could] having conversations with him so they can see the real him,” she said.
