Kanye West pulled yet another rabbit out of the hat recently when he unveiled the YEEZY 350 Cleat, a straight-up football shoe complete with the same Primeknit and styling seen on his other sneakers.
The fact the shoe could only be worn on the field (but not in competitive matches, as DeAndre Hopkins found out) did little to dampen the hype, as the shoe sold out with almost the same ferocity as any other YEEZY. It’s likely, then, that a whole lot of non-football playing people gobbled up the shoes and are now sitting on the Cleats with no opportunity to wear them — until now.
Custom sneaker builder Jake Danklefs has taken the YEEZY 350 Cleat, cut away the studded sole, and replaced it with one from an Ultra Boost. The result is actually pretty swish — the white matches the upper, there are no unsightly cuts and no other obvious faults. It looks like a brand new shoe.
It was made for actor Perry Sook (for what price nobody knows), who has since been showing it off over on his Instagram account.
There’s no word yet as to whether Danklefs will be creating any more of them, and chances are they’ll set you back a pretty penny. Check them out above.
Meanwhile, Drake and Jordan may be dropping a pair of white “OVO” slides.
