One of most common allegations against Kanye West's Yeezy sneakers is that people will praise them no matter what they look like simply because the rapper's name is attached. Jimmy Kimmel put that idea to the test in his latest man-on-the-street style video, which features an awful pair of knockoffs that his correspondent touts as the Yeezy Boost 2000.

How do the shoes fare? The random people on the street interviewed in the clip approve, including a guy wearing an obviously fake pair of 350 Boosts.

They also appear to believe the claims about "Yeezy Squeezy" technology and edible shoe laces though, so perhaps their opinions on footwear should be taken with a grain of salt.
