Kanye West's fans go crazy for his Yeezy Boost shoes... even if they're not quite sure what they look like.

Following the newest release of the 39-year-old rapper's highly coveted line of Adidas shoes, Jimmy Kimmel devoted a segment of Tuesday's Jimmy Kimmel Live! to see what would happen if they bought bargain-priced shoes, made some ridiculous modifications, and just told people they were the new Yeezys.

The result was fans raving about the sneakers, from the fur (modeled after real Kardashian hair!), to the compass addition (in honor of Kanye's daughter, North). One guy who was even wearing actual Yeezys was fooled by the late-night comedian's prank.

This is actually not the first time Jimmy has fooled unsuspecting Kanye fans. He actually pulled a similar stunt in August with (slightly less ridiculous-looking) knockoff sneakers.

Meanwhile, Kanye has added new dates to his Saint Pablo tour, and is back on tour after his wife Kim Kardashian West's scary Paris robbery incident.
