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.
