Yeezy might have the streets on lock, soon to be followed by Pharrell’s Hu NMD, but Costco’s Kirkland Signature sneakers are running the Internet thanks to John Mayer and Instagram user Jack Wagner (@versace_tamagotchi). Starting off as a joke, Wagner posted a pic of the Costco ‘Kirkland 11’ sneaker, which soon took a life of its own when Mayer joined in on the fun, making a tongue-in-cheek sneaker promo on Snapchat.
