Kanye West Air Yeezy II Sneakers Sell for $90,300: Rad or Ridiculous?

They officially went on sale this Saturday for $245, but some poor sucker paid $90,300 last Wednesday for a pair of Nike's new Air Yeezy II sneakers, designed by the one and only Kanye West.

The kicks, which reportedly feature anaconda-textured leather, a spiked back end and glow-in-the-dark soles with a signature front strap, sold for almost six figures on eBay after 84 bids were placed. Meanwhile, fans camped out for days before Saturday's launch, hoping to score a pair of Kanye's one-of-a-kind sneaks.



“It’s been an experience," one such camper, Francisco Torres, 33, told The New York Post. “I waited for a whole week, it was real intense. There was a lot of uncertainty. It was hard for them to keep the line in order. I actually got passes to NY Sports Club up the street and I would go and take showers every morning and then come back to the line."

Another fan was even worried he'd be killed for the kicks. "I’d be a little stressed wearing them out today," Jimmy Works, 23, told the Post. "People want these shoes to the point where they’ll shoot someone for them." We, personally, have no idea what the big fuss is over these sneakers. Do you?

    Anyone can buy anything they want to buy. Personally if I had $90,000 I would rather donate it to help fight the forest fires in the West.

    Anyone who would pay over $90,000 for a pair of sneakers ought to be euthanized.

    Of all things to spend $90K on, a pair of sneakers....

    Unless these are a "one-of-a-kind" sneaker or Kayne West actually wore them (in which case they could grow in value), this fool just p'sd away their money for nothing.

  • tomwebe... luke 2012/06/14 10:13:28

    Born in Honolulu, Hawaii, Obama was a community organizer in Chicago before earning his law degree. He worked as a civil rights attorney in Chicago and taught constitutional law at the University of Chicago Law School from 1992 to 2004. He served three terms representing the 13th District in the Illinois Senate from 1997 to 2004. He won election to the U.S. Senate in Illinois in November 2004.

    BTW, I live and work in Hawaii, and am answering you from there. Mr. Obama has FIVE Social Security numbers, NONE of which are of Hawaii origin. The latest SSN he possesses is from Connecticut, a state in which he has never resided.

    So, my statement still stands; Obama is the worst thing to come out of Chicago.
