The story of Kanye West's first sneaker with adidas, the Yeezy 750 Boost, has been reported from multiple angles, but a new piece of the puzzle was just revealed last night. In an Instagram video posted by Kanye's friend, designer Tracey Mills, Kanye is seen trying on the final production version of the sneakers for the first time.

In the video, Kanye is seen evaluating the sneakers on his feet and how they look. Mills points out that Kanye was trying to find the "best way to swag them out," which he says is untied with the zippers down. As Kanye is walking around in the video, he ends up getting photobombed by his daughter, Nori, for a brief moment.

Mills says that Kanye asked him what he thought of the sneakers, in which his response was, "These joints are like the first time man landed on the moon."

You can take that sentence and think Mills is saying that Yeezy 750 Boosts look like moon boots, but he's referring to the sneakers being historic. It proves that there's been a method behind Kanye's sneaker madness all along.
