Watch Jimmy Kimmel Prank Kanye West Fans With Fake Furry Yeezy Sneakers

That feature "edible laces"

Jimmy Kimmel continued his streak of poking fun at the hype surrounding the drop of a new line of Kanye West’s Yeezy shoes Tuesday night, showing a clip on Live! in which his crew pranked random passerby with the non-existent Yeezy Boost 2000.

The sneakers — which were embellished with fake fur and a compass — were widely believed to be Ye’s latest release, with several of the self-described Yeezy fans even accepting that they included features such as edible shoelaces and suede that was “specifically designed to feel like Kim [Kardashian]’s backside.”

In reality, the pair had been purchased for $12.50 from a store in Chinatown.

Watch the full clip above.
