the sherp atv: turns out it's the perfect ride to give away shoes in.
people have been taking to social media uploading videos of a group of black off-road-style trucks driving around chicago and people giving away kanye west's yet-to-be-released yzy qntm shoes. the sherpa atvs were parked in various locations across the city ahead of the february 16 release of the sneaker.
the sherp atv is a 99-inch-tall behemoth—that's 11 inches taller than the mercedes-benz g500 4x4²—that sits on four oversize wheels built for off-roading. it's 99 inches wide, too. the truck can climb up a 35-degree angle and has 23 inches of ground clearance. it’s powered by a four-cylinder diesel 44-hp engine and a five-speed manual (#savethemanuals). it has a maximum speed of 24.5 mph—and a maximum speed of 3.7 mph on the water, if it comes to that.
you may have the feeling you've seen this vehicle before; a sherpa atv made an appearance in kanye west's "follow god" music video, a track off his latest album jesus is king.
