The most talked about shoe gains even more hype with a video posted by Diddy via Twitter. In the video, Diddy, while preparing for the BET Awards last night asked his followers the following: “which pair should I wear?” and then proceeded to whip out the desired pair followed by a red color-way that we’ve never seen before. Diddy goes on to say that he’s the only one with them – which, at the present moment, could very well be true.
If these Yeezys are indeed one of a kind, this wouldn’t be the first time Diddy has had a customized pair. Earlier this month, images of his custom black Nike Air Yeezy 2s came to light via social media outlets – but regardless of all the hoopla, the red Yeezy Boost 350s do look mighty dope. It’ll be interesting to see if Kim Kardashian or Kanye has anything to say about them – we’ll have to wait and see.
Whether or not Diddy wore these at the award show is a mystery as he sported a pair of the Nike Air Cortez during the Bad Boy 20th Anniversary performance and followed up with a pair of black boots when he presented Smokey Robinson’s Lifetime Achievement Award. If he does happen to rock them at some point during the evening, we’ll be sure to keep you posted.
Update: Turns out Diddy switched out of the Nike Cortez and rocked his red pair of Yeezy Boost 350s as soon as he brought out Pharrell to the stage.
