Aaaaaaaand Kanye’s at it again. Word on the steets is that his new Yeezy 2 Nike kicks are creating quite the stir, boasting $90,000 eBay bids and causing fans of the rapper’s Yeezy line of shoes to flip their lids.
Nike stores apparently got smart after the release of the first Yeezy shoe created mass chaos in 1990. They’ve implemented their Twitter RSVP Raffle in an effort to avoid bodily injury, the need to camp out for a week to get a pair, and to remind us that even as adults who apparently have a few hundred extra buckaroos to blow on sneakers we will never wear, we still present the need for extra special control measures via the Twitterverse.
Other stores that will carry the Yeezy 2 have followed suit, and implemented raffles of their own, as only a mere dozen or so pairs of shoes will be alotted to each store. Only about 5,000 pairs total are set to be released.
While pre-sale auctions are under way offering the shoe for anywhere from $1,000 to $3,000, the Yeezy 2 will go on sale this Saturday for a retail price of $245.
What do you think? Father’s Day gift of the century?
