Yeezy Fan Creates Custom Shoes To Honor Kanye West

It seems there is simply no stopping the phenomenon known as Yeezy fans. So much so that when there isn’t a new Yeezy Boost being released or paparazzi sightings of West in custom kicks slow down (if only for a moment), West’s fans look to other sources to get their fix.

Not everyone can be provided custom Yeezy sneakers (à la Chris Brown), so what is a Kanye West fashion enthusiast to do? Create their own, of course.

TeamKanyeDaily, a popular Instagram account that posts (you guessed it) all things Kanye West-related, recently gave shoutouts to creative fans. Renee King hand-painted her version of West’s “Graduation” album cover artwork on a pair of canvas Vans sneakers.

finally perfected these, or at least in my eyes 😁 #kanye4prezzzzzz #jk

And this may not be just a hobby. From the sounds of half the comments King has received on her post, there could well be a market for her designs. In fact, the truly dedicated West follower can be decked out in head-to-toe custom fan designs — just add this sweater to your wish list.


For those of you who are after the real deal, you’ll just have to wait until the Yeezy Season 2 collection hits stores. Until then, you could always fork out $20K for a pair of Yeezy Boosts on eBay.
