The morning after truthsayer Kanye West pointed out that Beyonce got robbed at the Grammy’s on Sunday, he walked passed a man wearing Nike Command Forces in JFK and saw the perfect promotional opportunity for his new sneaker line. Referring to the Adidas Yeezy 750 Boosts on his own feet, West asked the man, “If I could give you these right now, would you throw those in the trash right away?”
“Of course!” said Nike’s unofficial spokesperson. “I’ma get you some of those,” the rapper responded. Satisfied, Kanye then continued on his way and definitely did not take off his pricey footwear.
The message here, if there is one, is that if you wear flashy Nikes to the airport, Kanye will maybe talk to you, but will definitely make you acknowledge how much cooler he is.
