Who says Kanye West doesn’t have a sole?
The rapper made good on his word to give paparazzi free pairs of his pricey Yeezy sneakers this week.
Photographer Jack Arshakyan took to Instagram to share a photo of several boxes of Yeezy Boost 350s marked with different names, along with a note thanking West and his wife, Kim Kardashian West, for the generous gift.
The giveaway of the $200 shoes to the photogs is 9 months in the making.
“One day, I’m going to be able to give you all Yeezys. All the paps. Next year,” the rapper, 39, told TMZ cameras in November.
West assured fans he hadn’t forgotten about his promise in February in a series of tweets, again declaring that paparazzi would receive their new kicks.
“Kanye and I were so happy to donate 1,000 shoes to Soles 4 Souls this holiday season,” the star wrote on her website. “I’m so glad to have learned about an organization doing so much good around the world.”
