Damn, Kanye! Back at it again in the white Vans! When we spotted Kanye West, 38, taking a quick lunch break at McDonald’s in LA on Feb. 22 we couldn’t help but notice his interesting choice of footwear.

Not only did the fancy footwear have us totally doing a double-take, but we thought it was interesting to see Ye’ in a pair of white Vans — the very same shoes Damn, Daniel wears in his viral video!
