Kanye West did say recently that a black colorway of his Adidas Yeezy 750 Boost would come soon, but aren’t out there yet.
Celebrity jeweler/longtime sneakerhead Ben Baller recently popped up on Instagram with a pair of what he claimed were “Black Boosts”… which prompted Ye’s wifey Kim Kardashian to call him out.
Kim hopped on Ben’s IG and commented: “These don’t come in black. They are fakes.”
After feeling her wrath, the notorious online stunter replied back to clarify. “You could have texted or emailed me. They were custom made by @d_preme not fake. Smh.”
While Ben’s Yeezy Boosts aren’t the actual black Yeezys that Adidas may or may not be release later this year, they aren’t exactly fake either. IG user Donovan Cortese customized the sneakers by taking a real pair of the “Light Brown” Yeezy 750 Boost and dying them black… and either gifting or selling them to Ben.
However, since Ben didn’t clarify this until later, Kim thought they were straight fakes.
