We’re not exactly sure what an “Air Yeezy II Red October” is, but apparently it’s worth a lot of money.
Just kidding. It’s a shoe. And because it was designed by Kanye West or something, a lot of people would like to wear it. The first Air Yeezys came out in 2009, and sold at retail for $250. Since then, this version has been anticipated breathlessly by so-called sneakerheads, and Nike made the surprise announcement on Twitter today that the shoes were now available on its website for the reasonable price of $245. They sold out in 10 minutes.
Due to the demand, some people have started selling the shoes for as much as $7,5oo on sites like eBay. If you think that is disturbing amount of money to pay for two shoes, then you are a person who is right. (via Gawker)
