Kanye West gives Dave Chappelle his own shoes

Rapper Kanye West was in a giving mood on Valentine's Day (14Feb15) as he presented his funnyman friend Dave Chappelle with a pair of his new sneakers.

Just two days after the Stronger hitmaker debuted his new Adidas Yeezy 750 Boost shoes at New York Fashion Week last Thursday (12Feb15), he paid a visit to Chappelle's stand-up show at the Gramercy Theater to give his pal a special gift.


West's wife Kim Kardashian took to her Instagram.com page to post a photo of her husband backstage at the show, sitting on a couch with no shoes on, as Chappelle stands next to him wearing the coveted Yeezys.


She added the caption, "Kanye gave Dave the shoes off his feet #Yeezys."


West and Chappelle's friendship dates back to 2004, when the comedian invited the young MC to perform on his cult TV series, Chappelle's Show. The gig marked West's first performance on TV and his first big break.


Chappelle wasn't the only recipient of West's generosity on Saturday - Kardashian also posted a photo of the rapper surprising two fans in an Adidas store with the $350 shoes.


She wrote, "My valentine went to @adidas this morning to surprise a few fans with new pairs of #yeezyboost! One of the many reasons why I love him."
