If you’ve been fiending for something Yeezy and can’t afford a darn thing in the collection, we’re here to help.

Especially if you’re planning on going full Kardashian for Halloween.

By now, you’ve likely seen the $895 Yeezy Season 2 Knit Ankle Booties on Kylie’s Instagram, or on Kourtney as she walks through a field of paps, or on Kim all the time.

If you’re like us, you’ve seen the price tag, cried into your iced coffee, and resigned yourself to be being bootie-less.

Luckily, the wonderfully weird world of the internet has figured out a way to make these babies at home. There are a lot of iterations out there on how to DIY them, but they’re all generally the same: you pull socks over your pumps, cut a hole for the heels, and reinforce the bottom.

Now, we know a true Kardashian probably wouldn’t be down to get crafty, but we have to make sacrifices for #fashion. To make your own Yeezys you’ll need:

  • A pair of heels

  • A pair of socks

  • Scissors

  • Grip pads

Once you’ve got all that rounded up, the rest is a piece of cake. Just pull the sock over the shoe, cut a hole where the heel is, and stick the grip pads to the bottom so you don’t eat pavement while wearing these in public.

That’s all there is. Sound insane? Well, yeah, it basically is insane, but they don’t look half bad. And they don’t cost much more than a few dollars.

Right or Left ? 🤔 lol I'm starting to think this is my favorite color combo 🙈

Now all you need for Halloween is an outfit to go with these boots. We recommend keeping it within the Yeezy color palette (think khakis, beige, olive). To complete the look, snag a contour stick and a Lumee case for your phone to walk around taking selfies with all night.

That’s a look we can keep with.
