Over the weekend, the adidas Yeezy 350 Boost landed at retailers. Although a wider release than its predecessor, the shoes are going for over $1,000 on the aftermarket. While most people are trying to resell the shoes, one individual has decided to skate in them.
While we know the Yeezy 350 Boost is not a skate shoe, Jenkem didn’t care. Not only did he use them for what they are intended for, wearing, but he went above and beyond by skating in them.
This is what Jenkem had to say:
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 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 stupid. 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.”
