Patrick: soooo… i got an offer to do this interview for John Legend’s concert on Thursday that would be broadcast over youtube… and hi!
Idk what to do.
me: What?! Go talk to John Legend!
Patrick: lol… So I should go?
Though Patrick lives in New York, we usually update each other on the random happenings of our lives through GChat. He’s my go-to source for a male perspective on basically everything (me: Dude, can I wear flats on a date? Patrick: Men don’t care. Save your heels for events.), so when he messaged me for advice on whether he should play hooky for a half-day for a chance to possibly meet John Legend, I gave the most reasonable response I could muster, “Well, duh!”
Turns out, he not only met the R&B crooner, but he also ran into Kanye West who complimented him on his footwear. Of course, I’m excited that my friend got to meet THE Kanye West, but I was even more hyped over the shoes, “Dude, he liked your SHOES!” Kanye is widely known for his trendsetting style, so a compliment from him is a golden stamp of approval in men’s fashion.
Though Patrick purchased his shoes about two years ago from Gilt Groupe, you can get a similar pair here.
