Kim and Kanye Wear Matching His & Her Air Yeezy IIs

Kim Kardashian didn’t have to wait for a pair of the highly coveted Nike Air Yeezy II sneakers — she just snagged a pair from her boyfriend (and the man who designed the shoe), Kanye West. Kardashian Tweeted a picture of the couple rocking the kicks on Tuesday with the caption, “His & Hers! #AirYeezys.”

For those of you who just said, “What’s an Air Yeezy?,” here’s a quick backstory on the hyped shoe: The Kanye West for Nike kicks are to sneakerheads as Christian Louboutins are to fashionable girls. Everyone wants them, but few actually get them. The “sole” difference? These sneakers are limited edition (it’s estimated that Nike released just 3,000 to 5,000 pairs worldwide), unlike designer heels, which you can easily purchase if you have the money to burn.

This past Saturday, the Air Yeezy IIs went on sale and sold out immediately; grown men camped out for a week outside stores (really, they did!) while others tested their luck via raffles and online contests. The retail price was $245, but the shoes are available on eBay for thousands of dollars, with one pair listed at $90,000.

So after all that commotion, the reality star who is barely ever not spotted in sky-high platforms got a pair — and all she had to do was date the designer.

Whatever.

Cute!! They look good on big and small feet. Kim is the best, it’s good to see her in a real relationship where she’s really happy. I wonder if she ever thinks about Reggie. Reggie looked so good with Kim, they were so good for each other at one point but I guess she got too big. That’s sad, really. But she seems so happy with Kanye and they do seem like a better match. Awwww, shucks!

I am happy for the both of them. She seems really comfortable around him and It’s sweet at how he gazes at her. The only problem I have with Kanye is his influence on how she should dress. Kim always had a great sense of style(she did start out as a stylist to the stars) but recently her clothes are wearing her. I’m sure Kanye fell in love with her before he had an influence on her clothing choices. What’s funny is usually a woman tries to change the man’s sense of style and it’s in reverse here. So Kanye stick to your music and designing but let Kim be Kim. To Kim please don’t change for anyone. You didn’t come this far to lose your identity. Kanye should trust and respect your judgement(“he fell in love wit Kim….when she was styling herself).
