IKEA-inspired Yeezys are a real thing and I want a pair

These are great!

Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2s are hard to get. If you’re looking to buy them on the resale market, you might spend almost $1000 on a pair. But what’s even more difficult to get than a pair of your standard Kanye West sneakers are IKEA-themed ones.

Yes. IKEA Yeezys.

Dan “Mache” Gamache is responsible for this creation. After his cream white Yeezys got damaged, he decided to transform these into the ultimate Swedish sneakers never before seen in any shoe or furniture store. They’re colored in all blue, save for the yellow stripe where the iconic IKEA letters are placed.

Instagram user @brucehatoo made a mockup of these before Gamache turned them into reality, complete with a familiar IKEA user guide.

This is an odd combination to be sure, but there’s something about these that are so perfect. Maybe it’s the brightness of the IKEA blue or the welcoming feeling of entering the store just knowing you’re going to buy something you sure as hell weren’t expecting to buy, but it doesn’t matter. I need these shoes.

I don’t even want custom-made real Yeezys. I want a pair of knockoff Yeezys that are custom made to look like these. And I want to go to IKEA in these like in the video and get myself a new desk or maybe just a hot dog with the change in my pocket. This is next-level IKEA stanning and I am here for it.

Stephen A. Smith thinks James Harden played poorly because someone ‘slipped something into his drink’

Noooooope.

WARNING: THE TAKES ARE HOT

The Rockets lost to the Spurs by 39 points at home in an elimination game. It was bad. Like, really bad. James Harden scored only 10 points and didn’t even make a field goal in the first half. The Spurs didn’t even have Kawhi Leonard and still wreaked that kind of havoc.

We all were a bit confused at how the Rockets could be that bad but Stephen A. Smith took it to another level after the game, making all sorts of wild accusations.

“I don’t know what happened. I don’t know how to explain it. There needs to be an investigation. Somebody might have slipped something into his drink, somebody might have done something to him. I have no clue, but it is not James Harden. That was not James Harden that showed up for the Houston Rockets tonight. Somebody with his jersey showed up, it wasn’t him. I cannot believe what I saw.”

This is potentially one of the hottest hot takes I’ve ever heard. There is no way he can even believe what he’s saying here, and he probably hasn’t for years. He literally accused someone of slipping something into Harden’s drink or that maybe a James Harden clone was out there. This whole thing was not okay on a lot of levels, but mostly, just take it easy, Stephen A. Harden played a horrible game, but it was him, through and through.
