Would you buy a pair of Kanye West Yeezy Boost 350 sneakers for $10,000? After the rapper’s collection with Adidas sold out in just 15 minutes on Saturday, June 27, the athletic shoes are now being sold on Ebay for $10,000. We’re not joking!
Kanye West, 38, should be proud! While many doubted his merge into fashion, he trusted in his vision and it’s paying off big time. With his worldwide shoe launch on June 27, the singer’s sneakers sold out in record time. And fans rushed online to share their thoughts on the madness! Find out what all of Kanye’s fans are saying about the shoes.
Many fans jumped online to share their thoughts on Kanye’s new shoe line (see the tweets below), and Kim Kardashian, 34, also chimed in. “So happy I ran back inside to grab these! Lifesaver on these long flights! Most comfy shoes in the world! Yeezy Boosts 350,” Kim wrote on an Instagram post last week, which was an image of her husband’s new line of shoes. Before his shoe line, he introduced his Yeezy 750 Boost line at New York Fashion Week in February. With the success of that, the shoe line followed, proving Kanye knows what’s up in the fashion department.
When it comes to fashion choices, Kanye doesn’t hold back at dishing style advice to those around him. Kim was one of the ones who fell victim to Kanye’s style guidance. When Kim stopped by Live! with Kelly & Michael on May 25, she opened up about an emotional incident that recently occurred. “[Kanye] put [all of my shoes] that he thought [weren’t] ‘cool enough’ in a pile, and I walked in and it was like a pile to the ceiling of shoes,” she said. “All my amazing shoes that I loved, and I started crying. I was like, ‘I can’t get rid of this stuff, your stylist has no idea what she’s talking about.’ So I put it all in another room, and I was like, ‘I’ll trust your opinion, but I’m not getting rid of my stuff. Let me see what you’re really talking about.’”
“Then I walk into my room, and there’s an entire room filled with all new clothes,” Kim continued. “All the stuff he wanted to fill back up my closet with. It was, like, really cool new designer stuff — I hadn’t even heard of some of these designers before. And it really helped me fall in love with fashion. I eventually did get rid of most of that stuff, and my style has evolved and changed. But I couldn’t see it at that time.”
