Kanye West Gifts President Obama Yeezy Boosts

When it’s deliver-or-die, supply chains become the lifeblood of a company. To that end, the fashion industry has embraced technology to navigate today’s hyper-complicated supply chain, with myriad solutions shaping the first, middle and last mile. Call it Sourcing 2.0.

Kanye West may or may not be planning a presidential run in 2020, but the rapper-turned-designer is already pretty tight with the current Commander-in-Chief – tight enough to send President Obama a pair of his Yeezy Boost sneakers, that is.

Wife Kim Kardashian West posted a photo to her Instagram over the weekend of a very “special delivery” – two boxes of size 11+ Yeezy Boosts tagged “Obama.”

While it seems unlikely that the President will be wearing his Boosts to the next state dinner, maybe they’ll get some use off-hours at the White House basketball court.
