Kanye West has gifted a group of paparazzi with his Adidas Originals Yeezy Boost 350 trainers. The generous presents were given after Kanye promised a group of the photographers free shoes nearly a year ago while in L.A.
One of the photographers lucky enough to have been given a pair of Yeezys, Jack Arshakyan, shared a snap of four shoeboxes, each individually labelled, next to his camera. He captioned the snap: "Thx to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West for hooking me and my fellow papz up with Yeezy boost 350."

Friends of the photographer were quick to comment on the photo, with one writing: "That's sick Kim and Kanye stay doing crazy generous gestures like this you don't see anyone doing it like them," while another wrote: "Congrats little brother. Heard they're super comfy!"
Kanye shared the shoes after promising he would give the photographers free pairs last year. On leaving his car, the rapper told the TMZ photograhers: "one day I'm going to be able to give you all Yeezys. All the paps. Next year."
Although the father-of-two's Yeezy line has been an incredible success, he has revealed that he wants to try his hand at a new project – designing furniture for Ikea.

The star told Radio 1: "I have to work with Ikea – make furniture for interior design, for architecture. I know that if I do a minimalist apartment inside a college dorm where the TV goes on the side of the wall… Yo Ikea, allow Kanye to create, allow him to make this a thing.
"Because, you know what, I want a bed that he makes, I want a chair that he make."
