Kanye West

Limited Edition Nike Kicks

Going for $80,000 Online

EXCLUSIVE

Air Yeezy 2 sneakers
The official price tag is a mere $245, but bids for Nike's new Air Yeezy 2 sneakers -- designed by Kanye West himself -- have already topped $80,000 on the Internet.

The Air Yeezy 2's don't drop until Saturday -- but people have been camping outside sneaker boutiques across the country for over a week, hoping to get a pair of the shoes ... which Kanye's been rocking for several months now.

But a lucky few were able to pre-order the kicks -- and some of these people have already pre-listed them on eBay. The online auctions range in value -- but one has already reached $89,100 ... FOR ONE PAIR!!!

The last time people went this nuts for sneakers was last December -- when Nike released a new edition of the classic Air Jordans.

And don't forget last September -- when Nike released a remake of the famous Marty McFly shoes from "Back to the Future." Those shoes sold for a measly $37,500 at a charity auction in L.A.

Oh my god. Shoes.

This is nothing but a publicity scam.

Wow, $80,000.00. That's a lot of welfare checks. The boys in the hood must be pooling their money on this one.

Stay tuned for news on the riots and shootings related to the Air Yeezy 2. Stay classy, shoe thugs.

Seriously, this is likely a publicity stunt. $80,000.00 is cheap assuming the auction and bids are even real.

Those shoes are ugly as he is. I wouldn't be caught wearing s#it like that. They only cost about $4.00 to make. Just cause the krustye designed them. Look at him he's an ugly pair of krust. Hell no son!

Why do they even bother putting laces and velcro on these things? No one who buys this crap ever ties them anyways. Such classy footwear.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure that $80,000 bid is going to go unpaid. How f'ing ugly! Kanye has no taste in shoes OR women.

The Kardashian are good with their Pr timing. The day that they claim this chick is Kris gf or date , TMZ is promoting Kanye shoes because no one wants them. I starting to believe Kris was set up. I just saw the the KUWTK rating has fallin. Remember it was Kris relationship with Kim that sky rocketed the ratings. Now they are using this attack for this weekend rounds of promotion. Kris fight back and stand your ground. You did say you were having fun, nothing wrong with that. Be smart, they are waiting for his next move like hungry sharks. We need to support him against that family.
