Reality star Kim Kardashian is not scared to show off her bond with boyfriend Kanye West by unveiling her new Air Yeezy 2 Nike kicks alongside none other than Mr. West himself.
This week, Kim K unveiled an Instagram shot of her new limited edition sneakers.
Ever since Kanye West's limited edition Nike Air Yeezy 2s hit shelves Saturday, they have been nearly impossible to find. Though the high-end sneakers sell at retail for $245, fans have been buying them online for prices far above their retail value (as much as $89,000). But luckily for Kim Kardashian, she's dating the designer. Yeezy's girlfriend tweeted out a photo of her new pair, which just happen to match her rapper beau's solid black sneaks with hot pink and neon blue detailing. Her message simply reads, "His & Hers! #AirYeezys." Kanye's gift to his reality star girlfriend comes just days after she gave the rapper a $750,000 Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 for his 35th birthday. (MTV)
Not even G.O.O.D. Music's Hit-Boy had his own pair as of last week.
"Man, he told me he was going to give me some, but I didn't really press the issue. So I don't have none as of now," Hit-Boy said in an interview when asked about getting laced with a pair. "[$90,000 eBay bid?] Yeah, I know. That was ridiculous, right?" (Vulture)
Recently, one happy Air Yeezy 2 customer talked about the adrenaline rush he got to cop Ye's hard-to-find sneakers.
How long would you wait in line to get your hands on the new $1,000 "Air Yeezy" sneakers designed by rapper Kanye West? Detroiter Nik White has his answer. He got in line at downtown Royal Oak's Burn Rubber Shoe Boutique Tuesday for the shoes that went on sale Saturday. He was among many metro Detroiters who waited in line for days to get their hands on the kicks. The popular sneakers sold out within an hour of going on sale. WWJ spoke with White just as he was about to get his three pairs of Air Yeezy's. "If you collect shoes, you want to have the style that are harder to find ... it's more the value, whether you keep it or trade it, sell it - whatever - it's the value of it," said White. (WTSP News)
Outside of sneakers, Kardashian reportedly copped Ye a luxury whip for his birthday earlier this month.
What does the woman who has everything get the man who has everything for his birthday? If you're Kim Kardashian, you buy your boyfriend Kanye West a rare $750,000 Lamborghini. Ball so hard! Sources close to the couple tell TMZ ... Kim purchased the Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 in L.A. for her new BF, who's celebrating his 35th birthday today. But Kanye can't play with it yet because he's in Ireland on the Watch the Throne tour. So we're told Kim wanted to give him a taste of his gift -- so she took a video of the car to show him ... and we're told she's screening the video in person tonight on the Emerald Isle. So it's probably safe to say the car won't be Kanye's only present this year. (TMZ)
