Kanye West gives away free Yeezy sneakers via Russian ATV in Chicago




Our instinct is to flee, but you never know what some people will do for sneakers.

Designated Kanye West representatives are spending Valentine’s Day tooling around Chicago in alarming, all-black vehicles called Sherps giving away free Yeezys. (West, presumably, is spending Valentine’s Day with wife Kim Kardashian.)

The vehicles, which resemble baby versions of Christopher Nolan’s Batmobile, are Russian-designed ATVs, which must surely please West’s BFF President Donald Trump. The shoes are the upcoming YZY QNTM model, which is currently not scheduled for a nationwide release.

In a video posted by Complex, a fleet of the vehicles prowl through Chicago’s Wicker Park neighborhood, while men armed with snow shovels — who are either part of this whole post-apocalyptic aesthetic or part of the Sherp support team — trot alongside them.

A man who resembles Rick Rubin or your local rabbi can be seen handing out boxes of the shoes from the window (or porthole — is it a porthole?) of one of the Sherps.

A Twitter user points out in the thread that the shoes are already going for around $1,000 on resale sites.
