The most anticipated sneaker for the spring, KAWS x Air Jordan 4, was finally released on March 31, 2017. This is the first time the pop artist and Jordan collaborated, so naturally the shoe is going to be in high demand.
The release of the premium grey suede (accented with a glow in the dark outsole) sneakers has everyone in a virtual uproar. The sneakers, we must admit, are really cool. Instead of the “Air Jordan” branding, we see the iconic “KAWS” trademark in the design. IF you managed to get a pair, the price tag is only $350 at retail locations, but they have since sold out and are going for as much as $2,000 on eBay.
So the verdict is out that these are the sneakers to get. One sneaker fan in particular actually got his hands on a pair. The person in question claims to be Kanye West's nephew, but wait, it gets better. He loved the shoes so much that he actually ate his shoes for breakfast. Literally!
Of course sneaker fanatics were lined up for days for the release of the rare sneaker and sadly, did not have the hookup as Paypa Boy did.
The other lucky fans that actually got a pair decided not to eat them and looked on enviously as Paypa Boy had little regard to what might happen AFTER he finished his meal.
We could not confirm how exactly Paypa Boy was related to West as it is well known that Kanye is an only child. But we can say that he isn't interested in jumping over jumpman in this case. Look out Yeezy, Jordan’s are still a big deal and DELICIOUS!
