Kanye West’s Air Yeezy 2 sneakers selling for $80K on eBay
Washington: Limited edition trainers designed by rocker Kanye West has attracted pre-order prices of over 80,000 dollars on eBay.
The online auctions range in value -- but one has already reached 89,100 dollars for one pair.
Nike’s new Air Yeezy 2 sneakers will officially retail for 245 dollars, from Saturday.
People have been camping outside shoe boutiques, hoping to score a pair of the limited edition kicks, which West has already been wearing for several months, TMZ reported.
According to dresslikekanyewest.com, some retail stores will hold raffles for online customers.
The Air Yeezy 2 is the second installment of the 2009 Air Yeezy. It’s slimmer than the original, because it was designed to fit the singer’s narrow foot.
The design was inspired by the classic 1980s basketball shoes, according to Nike’s website.
The shoes are available in two colors: platinum and black.
