Kanye West has proven himself such a massive cultural figure that fans will swoon over a new pair of his Yeezy shoes without giving the actual style any significant thought. 

Or at least that's the statement Jimmy Kimmel made on Jimmy Kimmel Live Tuesday night, trolling the people of Hollywood Boulevard with some totally absurd knockoff kicks. 

In a man-on-the-street segment, the Kimmel team bought some shoes for $12.50 and added a compass and glued on fake fur. They then told passersby they were the real deal and asked for their opinions on the sneakers. The result is equally hilarious and embarrassing. 

It's brilliant trolling, as participants excitedly review the shoes as "different" and "attractive," praising the shoes' performance and other totally made up features. One guy even tries nibbling on the "edible laces," saying they taste "really good."
