Kanye West turned up at the 29th annual Footwear News Achievement Awards in New York yesterday to accept his Shoe of the Year award for his Adidas Yeezy Boost 350.

In typical Kanye style, he delivered another outrageous acceptance speech where he touched upon his infamous Taylor Swift incident, his fashion inspirations and more.

"I have absolutely no plans for what I'm going to say, so this could land completely wrong. But it doesn't really fu***** matter, does it? If you don't like 10-minute profanity-ridden speeches that end with a presidential bid, you can go to the bathroom," said Ye.

"And after the infamous Taylor Swift moment, I sort of did a little self-exile, just to get away from the paparazzi, have people not just fucking with me constantly. And the first thing I did was I went to Japan and it was me and Virgil Abloh, who has the brand Off-White. And we sat there and just sat on the computer every day with this idea of design..." he continued.
