Matt Neal, Yeezy Sneakers


Depending on how much of a sneaker fan you are, this might be the deal for you.

Matt Neal, 26, made an unusual offer to the Internet Thursday: He would give away his Yeezy Boosts to a stranger in exchange for a brand-new, healthy kidney. The Ann Arbor, Mich., resident first posted his offer in the WDYWT (What Did You Wear Today) Facebook group. He has been on dialysis for two years as a result of his failing kidneys and is looking for a new lease on life, courtesy of a kind stranger who is gunning for a piar of Boosts.

"S/O is a kidney that has been abused by being a hype beast," he wrote in his post. "BIN: One working kidney from a true sneaker head."

In a later post, Neal noted that remaining on the waiting list could take anywhere from five to seven years. Should someone agree to the terms, it seems like Neal wouldn't be without his Boosts for long because according to TMZ, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian caught wind of the story. They were reportedly so touched by the story that they offered to give Neal a free pair of the coveted shoes if the exchange did take place.

Unfortunately, it's illegal to offer money or merchandise to anyone for an organ. He might not have to worry about that law, though, because after his story took off many offered up their kidneys in exchange for absolutely nothing.

"I've been in tears twice now because all the love and support that I'm getting from random strangers!!" Neal added later.

We're wishing you a speedy recovery, Matt Neal!
