In case you’ve been living under a rock, the mad rush for Yeezy sneakers has shown no signs of slowing down. The latest incarnation of Kanye West‘s much-hyped Yeezy Boost 350s are an all-black-everything version of one of the Adidas sneakers he presented at last fall’s Fashion Week—sneakers that have inspired camp-outs in front of stores, waiting in lines for hours at a time, hundreds of thinkpieces, and even the creation of a (failed) app to reserve them in advance. The buzzy kicks dropped last week, but have already been popping up on eBay at a resale value of $20K. What’s a sneakerhead to do?

Thankfully, Pintrill, a witty online pin company that caters to the streetwear set, has created a pin collection for the ultimate sneakerhead. Within this range, you’ll find amazingly detailed enamel pins that are exact replicas of everything from Kanye‘s early Yeezys to Comme des Garcons’ Play sneaker, all of which go for $15 a pop—a far cry from the $20K you would fork over for a pair of blackout Yeezy Boost 350s.

Right now, Pintrill is also offering a Kanye pack, which includes the latest Yeezy Boosts, his older designs, and even the mug of everyone’s favorite box-jawed multi-hyphenate. They’re the perfect consolation prize for every hypebeast mourning a lack of Yeezys in their life—and they’re pretty damn fly to boot.
