Billie Eilish Stresses Over the Coloration of Her Sneakers, and It Will Make You Crack Up
Billie Eilish has a serious issue to take up with the internet and her fellow sneakerheads: what color are the Nike Air Uptempo sneakers? Billie gave us all a sneak peek into her shoe closet (spoiler: this place is sneaker central), trying to convince everyone that the Uptempos are mint green and an off-white, though it seems some people feel the off-white shade has a pinkish tone.
“So I’ve come to the conclusion that you guys just don’t know your sneakers at all. Because the people that agree with me — because they know what the f*ck the shoe looks like — are all people that are sneakerheads that know what the f*cking Uptempo Mid Green shoes look like,” Billie said, clearly stressed over the issue, though she does acknowledge that there are bigger problems going on in the world, and we agree with her there.
Suffice it to say, as fellow fashion people, we totally feel Eilish’s frustration, and girl, we’ve been there. We have to hand it to Billie: most descriptions of the Uptempos that she owns do not describe the outer leather as pink whatsoever. So yes, Billie, you can have this one!
Unfortunately, if you’re now eyeing the trainers as we are, they’re sold out in most places, but available for resale on sites like Vestiaire Collective and Poshmark. Read ahead for another glimpse at Billie’s comparison shots, then pick up her shoes, which we’re sure she’ll wear on some virtual red carpet or for a performance soon. Clearly, they deserve the spotlight just as much as Billie does.
