Jenkem Magazine || Skateboarding the Kanye Yeezy 350

While other people are quickly getting their pairs on eBay to sell for up to $10,000, Jenkem Magazine decided to do something different with theirs, completely wrecking a pair by skating with them out on the streets of New York City.

Jenkem truly put the shoes to the test, scraping them on the floor, riding through puddles, and chucking them under buses. They tested them so hard, in fact, that they ruined one of their cameras along the way - "If you are wondering about the skate audio - our camera got fucked up halfway through filming, so you're gonna have to settle for Kanye's tunes as we burn through his overhyped shoes," reads the blurb.
