New York, N.Y., United States (4E) – Kayne West’s new Nike Air Yeezy 2 sneakers will debut Saturday at select stores around the country, and lines started days ago at some locations for the chance to snag a pair of the coveted shoes.
Fans have been camped outside stores from New York to California willing to shell out big bucks for the fabled high-tops.
The shoes retail for $245, but some stores are charging as much as $1,000 for a pair, and avid sneakerheads will pay the price.
What makes these sneakers so special, besides the Kayne West name, is that they are a limited release and bare a name not associated with an athlete.
