She's an aspiring shoe designer and DIY wunderkind. She's also ~kinda~ obsessed with Kardashian style.

Case in point: She loved these Yeezy boots that Kylie's wearing in this Insta pic, but — womp womp — they retail for $895.

So Shay figured out how to make them on her own. FOR $5. "I always want the looks but I don't want to pay for them," she told BuzzFeed.

To do it, you need a pair of spare socks, and some Sure Step non-skid pads (which cost around $2.69 at Walmart) and THAT'S IT. MAGGGGGIC.

ET VOILA!

Since Shay posted the video, she says budget-conscious ladies have been sharing their own versions of the Yeezy with her.

The video's garnered more than 40,000 views, and women are proudly showing off how they're rocking their DIY Yeezys.

Since then, Shay's made several more celeb dupes, like Kendall's ripped-up jeans.
