Man Buys Adidas Yeezys For RM3,300, Receives A Pair Of Plushy Slippers Instead
Kanye West is a man of many talents. Aside from producing music and bursting into spontaneous rants on stage, he's also pretty good at designing sneakers.
After leaving Nike in 2013, the Chicago musician worked with German sportswear giant adidas to develop the Yeezy line, which carries a range of limited edition footwear.
Due to extremely limited quantities of the releases, his kicks have been highly coveted by many worldwide. They are known to sell out within seconds upon release.
Out of his many in-demand creations, the Yeezy Boost 350 "Turtle Dove" still holds very high resell value and it's virtually impossible for one to purchase a pair below RM6,000
Released in 2015, the low-top, lightweight runner is made from a distorted leopard print version of adidas' signature Primeknit fabric. It also features rope laces, a pull tab, and the highly acclaimed Boost cushioning system.
So when a Vietnamese man named Max Hoang Trinh saw a pair of Turtle Doves on sale for a "steal price", he decided it was too good of a chance to miss
Max made the jump and immediately purchased the sneakers for a price of USD750 (RM3,316), which is considered really "cheap" for a pair of Yeezys.
But when the package finally arrived, he realised that he had been trolled - BIG TIME
Instead of the Yeezy Turtle Doves he had paid for, he received a pair of cute Yeezy-style plush slippers.
Poor Max. :(
Max then took to Facebook to complain about his purchase, posting a couple of photos of his cute slippers
Guys, let this be a reminder to all of us - if it's too good to be true, it probably is!
There are currently a lot of fake sneakers out in the market. Always do your research and ask for opinions before purchasing. It might save you a couple of hundred ringgits.
