Consider it Kanye West‘s personal Valentine’s Day gift to you. Starting February 14th, you can pre-order a pair of his much-anticipated “Yeezy Boost” sneakers by using this app. Only 9,000 of his suede high-top sneakers will be available at a retail price of $350. The shoes are expected to sell out in minutes, so you better act quickly!
West teased his fans by sporting a pair of his new shoes during his Grammy performance last week, and Kim Kardashian hasn’t been hiding her excitement about the line on social media. West’s collaboration with Adidas, which consists of mostly muted colors, comes two years after he cut ties with Nike.
Yeezy isn’t one to do anything modestly, and the unveiling of his new sneaker line was certainly no exception. Kim Kardashian, Beyonce, and Anna Wintour were among some of the famous faces that sat in the crowd as Kanye unveiled his new kicks on Thursday during the first day of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York. Fortunately for all of us who couldn’t attend the star-studded event, Kim made sure to document the whole night on her Instagram account.

Rihanna, P. Diddy, Jay Z, Beyonce, Kim K, and Anna Wintour all seemed to be thoroughly enjoying themselves at Thursday night’s show, as they sat in the front row supporting Kanye. North West, on the other hand, was not feeling the night so much…
Maybe she’s just worried about not being able to snag a pair of these fresh new sneakers before they sell out! (Actually, who are we kidding? She probably has five monogrammed pairs already…)
For those of you who, like North, are upset about the thought that you might not be able to purchase a pair before they’re sold out, there is no need to fret/cry. In an interview with Ryan Seacrest, Yeezy himself confirmed that “eventually, everybody who wants to get Yeezys will get Yeezys.”
So there you have it- from King Yeezy himself.
