Kanye West made a fan pretty happy when he gave him a pair of Yeezy Boost 350 V2s. Tyler Wesley, who was paralyzed after an accident caused him to sustain a vertebrae break, proudly displayed West’s gift to him on Instagram.


“Tyler, You are an inspiration you show the world anything is possible thank you for sharing your journey. Kanye West.”


Wesley has been capturing his rehabilitation progress on Instagram and recently posted a video of himself making strides:

For all of West’s antics, it’s good to see him giving back to his fans. In other news, I gifted my 11-year-old niece with a pair of Targeezy (Target’s versions of the Yeezy), and she will probably never speak to me again.

Bye, Kinja! It's been fun (occasionally).

So he gave a pair of shoes to a guy who can’t walk? That was super nice of him, but I’m still going to chuckle about it.
