How Yeezy Boosts Saved a Cancer Patient's Life
This isn't a story about hype, it's a story about real life. This is about how yeezy boosts saved a Cancer patient's life.
Steve Johnson is a young and energetic festival goer whose life got turned around when diagnosed with Colon Cancer.
For a guy who preferred sandals and Birkenstocks over sneakers, this disease not only affected Johnson's health, but lifestyle as well. Steve would eventually become so weak that standing on wood floors felt like hell because of blisters, and his chaco sandals he's worn since 2003, destroyed his feet.
Billy, bestfriend of Johnson, was aiding in a hospital visit where Steve shattered an ankle by stepping on a parking bumper.
And here's where the Yeezy Boosts played a major role:
After that healed, he said, ‘Man, you really need to wear shoes – real shoes.’
I told him that I’m a huge Yeezy fan, and I bought the “Pirate Black” and “Turtle Dove” adidas Yeezy 350s to put away and keep deadstocked for awhile and he said, ‘Dude, are you worried about money or comfort right now?’ I ended up wearing the Turtle Doves, and even though I was bleeding all over the insides of them, I felt like a new man. The Boost soles felt like clouds on my feet. I was instantly able to move better and walk into treatments unlike before.
That shoe and sole helped me feel comfortable and helped me make it to treatments. I understand the hype around the shoe, but I honestly credit these shoes for helping save my life and getting me to and from my treatment appointments.
It's amazing how the right pair of shoes can turn someone's life around.
Steve Johnson, you're officially welcomed to the #BoostBoyz club. We're wishing you a full recovery and send positive vibes to help make the days somewhat easier. Salute!
