Hint: it has something to do with the Kardashians...

What would Kanye say? We’ve seen Kim, Kylie and the rest of the Kardashian-Jenner clan wearing the new Yeezy Season 2 Knit Ankle Boots, worth a disturbing $895 (about R12 440).

Naturally, Kardashian fans all over the world are clamouring to get their hands on a pair -- and the hefty price tag hasn't stopped them. Thanks to this superfan, that is. Aspiring shoe designer and DIY queen Shay Cherish told Buzzfeed she's obsessed with the Kardashians' style, and she's made it her mission to create her replicas of their looks.

“I always want the looks but I don’t want to pay for them,” she told BuzzFeed. So it was the most natural thing in the world for Shay to yank a pair of socks over her heels. And voila! DIY Yeezy boots.
The crafty fashionista from Georgia in the US has shared the (very complicated) DIY instruction video on Instagram, and her followers have been copying the look.

With more than 40 000 views, the video has been a hit with her followers praising her for the efforts; “Kanye claims to be a genius but you my friend, actually are one. Truly visionary! Keep at it!” said user purrincessrajah.

It’s safe to say the Yeezus rapper and designer has some serious competition, don't you think?
