Continue reading to see the adidas ZX 850 by Kanye West and let us know if you’re anticipating the general public to be a little bit more appreciative of the sneaker given the new Kan-text.

Where along that timeline this pair was blessed with Ye’s own writing remains unclear, but they appear to be the real deal upon comparison of signatures from this and previous charity auctions. Get the rest of the photos after the click and tell us in the comments if you think this Air Yeezy piece of memorabilia is worth the current price from this listing by frankmastertank on eBay.
