Desperate Man Tries to Trade Yeezy Boosts for New Kidney

Kim Kardashian, Kanye West want to lend a hand.

Published August 30, 2015

Kanye West's coveted Yeezy Boosts sneakers are so hard to get, a Michigan man is trying to trade his pair for a new kidney.

Matt Neal, 26, is suffering from Berger's disease, which leads to kidney failure. Sadly, Neal is very far down the transplant list and it's not looking good for him getting one before his body gives out. So, he came up with idea to offer his Boosts to whomever will part with one healthy kidney.


According to TMZ, West and his wife Kim Kardashian heard the story and were so moved that they offered a second pair of Boosts to whomever steps up to the plate. While there is a law prohibiting people for paying for new organs, a trade may be a loophole. Either way, Neal's story has touched a lot of people and he already has several offers for kidneys, absolutely free.

Hopefully there's a happy ending — and Boosts for everybody! — to this story. is your No. 1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.
