SneakersVerne Troyer Has Yeezys and You Don't
The actor, who famously played Mini Me, got his hands on some pirate black Yeezy Boosts.
Newly re-designed Adidas Yeezy Boost 350s are coming on September 24th, but just last month, a pair of mini first-edition Yeezys hit shelves for all of the lil hypebeasts out there (or more likely, their parents). For some adult little people like Verne Troyer, it was the first opportunity to score some of Kanye West's highly-coveted kicks. But when you're the world-famous actor behind Mini Me, you don't rapid-fire click adidas.com on release day with the rest of the plebes. No, you have Kim and Kanye send you a pair of infant-sized pirate black Yeezy Boost 350s directly to your doorstep, which is exactly what they did.
As part of his ongoing unboxing video series, Troyer approached his new Yeezys with the same level of surprise, intrigue, and mild enthusiasm most 47-year-old dudes would. 1) He said he liked the color of them (note: the color of them is black) 2) He noted that the design makes for a near slip-on style, despite their laces and 3) stated that they were comfortable, a fact we can attest to (Shout out to Adidas Boost technology). His genuine enjoyment of the sneakers is refreshing because unlike the thousands of people out there who protect their Yeezys like a first-born child or simply buy them to sell online, Troyer just likes the way the look and is going to where them in the street. In fact, he already has. As for the rest of us, we'll be at our computers on September 24th hoping to be blessed by Yeezus. (By which of course we mean being chosen by random selection for the privilege to fork over $200.)
