Here’s a useful pro tip: when you and your friends are laughing it up, claiming you’ll do anything to get your hands on some Yeezys, make sure you make a list of a few things you actually won’t do. Like jeopardize the roof over you and your wife’s head.
That’s what this guy did, according to his wife’s epic rant on Reddit, which was originally uncovered by GQ. Kanye West‘s Yeezy Boosts debuted in February of 2015, and since then, they’ve been one of, if not the, most coveted shoes in the sneaker world. From the original grey 750s, to the black and tan 350s, at least one pair of Kanye’s adidas footwear line is a must-cop for sneakerheads (and Kanye heads) all over the globe. People line up for days in advance of one of the shoe’s releases, just to get a chance to purchase a pair of the coveted kicks.
This guy chose not to wait in line. Instead, he figured coughing up his mortgage money was a more effective method.
Then he dropped the bomb. He said those 4 pairs total cost us $2.5k. I had no idea what to say. I was completely dumbfounded. Who in their right mind spends $2.5k on 4 pairs of sneakers? He said he bought those 2 pairs off of a guy in a local sneaker group that he met up this morning. Each pair was $1k… I asked him wtf. He said he wanted a pair of the Yeezy’s. But he had to buy 2 since he wanted “one to stock and one to rock”. I was livid at this point I thought he was done with this bullshit and now he spends this month’s mortgage on 4 pairs of f*cking sneakers. He said the other 2 pairs he got at the mall so I’m going to get him to f*cking return those.
Yikes. Chances are he isn’t getting the big piece of chicken at dinner.
