Visvim footwear is super expensive. Obtaining just one pair means achieving grail status to those who want to look like a chill Japanese dude or Kanye West. But one hip-hop producer's obsession with the Hiroki Nakamura-designed footwear goes beyond anything that Kanye West has shown us so far. In fact, it puts it to shame.

Emile Haynie—producer for Kid Cudi, Ghostface Killah, Cormega, AZ, and more—has 50 pairs of various visvim shoes, boots, moccasins, and sandals. His friend and photographer, Jake Davis, snapped a few pics of Emile's collection, and we're in absolute astonishment at how cash he must have splurged to have his feet cradled in the elk leather at all times.

This isn't exact science, but with 50 pairs of visvims, and each pair ranging somewhere between $400-$800, this collection has a potential retail value of $20,000-$40,000. Emile could put you through college for a couple years just on his love for Hiroki.
