Kanye West’s fans go crazy for his Yeezy Boost shoes… even if they’re not quite sure what they look like.
Following the newest release of the 39-year-old rapper’s highly coveted line of Adidas shoes, Jimmy Kimmel devoted a segment of Tuesday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! to see what would happen if they bought bargain-priced shoes, made some ridiculous modifications, and just told people they were the new Yeezys.
The result was fans raving about the sneakers, from the fur (modeled after real Kardashian hair!), to the compass addition (in honor of Kanye’s daughter, North). One guy who was even wearing actual Yeezys was fooled by the late-night comedian’s prank.
Watch the hilarious on-the-street interviews below.
Hey, the good news is if they like those shoes, they don’t need to go spending several hundred dollars on the real thing!
This is actually not the first time Jimmy has fooled unsuspecting Kanye fans. He actually pulled a similar stunt in August with (slightly less ridiculous-looking) knockoff sneakers.
