Turns out, Louis Vuitton isn't the only one that will call you out for wearing fakes. Kanye West will, too. Yesterday, a fan approached Yeezus in Paris hoping for an autograph on his Red October lookalikes and while he got the autograph, he was also told the deal by the rapper-turned-designer, who said: "These are not real though. You know that right? These are not real. That's alright, though."
In case you're not up on sneaker culture, West began collaborating with footwear giant, Nike, back in the mid-2000's, initially on some original colorways for himself. This eventually expanded to West contributing his own silhouette designs, such as the Air Yeezy in 2009, the Air Yeezy 2, which initially hit stores in 2012, and the style at issue, the Air Yeezy 2 Red Octobers, which debuted in February.
The designs all hit stores, subsequently sold out and began popping up on eBay for exorbitant amounts. (Wil Fry commented on this with his $90k Air Yeezy tee). So, while Kanye was surprisingly cool about the fake sneakers, here's a heads-up to anyone who is sporting a fake Yeezy necklace from RSVP Sweatshop or the fake Kanye West x Guiseppe Zanotti scandals.
