You don’t have to love the adidas Yeezy Boost 350 as much as Brad Hall does, but bashing the Kanye West-designed sneaker will probably have you on the outs with a lot of sneakerheads. Grandparents, however, don’t care about being liked by sneakerheads or being poppin’ on the ‘gram, so chances are they’re going to keep it a Benjamin (100%) when you ask their opinion on Kanye West’s cozy adidas Originals sneaker. That’s just what one grandma did in a no-holds-barred review of the adidas Yeezy Boost 350 “Oxford Tan.”
As you’ll discover while watching the unique unboxing video, this Grandma isn’t completely out of touch with pop culture. She openly admits to loving Kanye as a rapper, but his footwear designs… not so much. Analyzing everything from the shoebox that “looks like nothing,” to the lack of Kanye West branding on the shoe, Granny is completely unimpressed with pretty much everything about the Yeezy Boost 350, calling the sneaker “very clumsy and stupid looking.” She’s also not digging the “Oxford Tan” colorway and isn’t checking for the $200 price tag either. Isn’t grandma the one who teaches us to say something nice or not say anything at all? *Kanye shrug*
Maybe grandma would appreciate the Yeezy Boost 350 more if she saw how they look on a magic carpet ride. Either way, that would be about the only thing she liked about the sneaker. When all is said and done, granny sticks to her guns with a final verdict of “Take it back.”
You never know if Kanye might respond to granny’s Yeezy Boost diss on a future installment of the newly revived G.O.O.D. Fridays. But one can only hope it doesn’t discourage her from dropping more sneaker reviews in the future and going on to become the Brad Hall of the AARP scene.
