Over the weekend while you were out getting drunk and maybe even getting laid, I was hunting for a shoe. But not just any shoe – I was hunting the new Kanye shoe for Adidas. Now I’m no Hypebeast, but when I heard that the demand for this little sneaker crashed the Adidas app, Footlocker.com, and JimmyJazz.com, and that they were going for $1000 a pair on Craigslist and eBay, I knew we had to get a pair of them. Why?
To skate them of course! We made this clip with Hopps skater Piro Sierra to see what it felt like to shred a thousand dollars via kickflips. To make people remember that these are just shoes. And to make Hypebeasts who are putting them in gold cases feel just a little bit more foolish. So do all of us a favor and send this on to your friend that cares just a little too much about his “dope sneaker collection.”
PS: If you are wondering why there’s no skate audio, our camera got fucked up halfway through filming, so you’re gonna just have to settle for Kanye’s tunes as we burn through his overhyped shoes.
