Man Buys Limited Edition Yeezys for $750, Gets Trolled Hard

The Yeezy 350 Boost Turtle Dove edition is probably one of the most in-demand and most expensive sneakers in the market. So when a man found a pair on sale price, there was no other choice but to take the leap and buy them.

The limited edition sneaker is the brainchild of Kanye West and Adidas. It was released two years ago, but even now, its resale value can go as much as $2,000.

If you’re in doubt, just browse through Amazon and you’ll see how ridiculous one pair costs.

When a man named Max Hoang Trinh saw a pair of Yeezy’s on sale for $750 online, he immediately bought it. But when the package arrived and he opened the box, he realized that he was trolled — big time.

According to World of Buzz, although the color was quite accurate, the pair of shoes looked nothing like the Yeezy 350 Boost.

What was even more disappointing was when he tried on the hideous footwear. It looked like a pair of infant shoes for adults as one netizen pointed out.

Trinh posted his experience using his Facebook account and while other advised him to be more careful when dealing with online sellers, other can’t help but have a good laugh out of the situation.

“The description said ‘Turtle Dove’. The seller didn’t lie to you, they really do look like turtles,” said one user.
