Lest you forget, today's the day to cop those #veryrare Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 Tans at select Los Angeles retailers. Despite the very mixed reviews of Kanye West's runway collections, the outspoken rapper did something right with this shoe collab, because sneakerheads are hooked.
Below is the official LA retailer list for your convenience. If you can't break away from the computer today and didn't reserve a pair via Adidas's revolutionary Confirmed mobile app, you can try to purchase them online here. To prevent its site from crashing, Adidas will only "randomly allow people access to the product page," so act fast.
