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.

My last pair of sneakers cost about $40 and I thought that was overpriced for a simple pair of sneakers.

People get shot & robbed over Jordan's. No one is risking jail time over Kanye West's sorry ass.

At what point will TMZ and every other media organization realize that outrageous Ebay bids are very rarely legit? Despite Ebay saying the bids are binding, it is pretty easy to bid a huge amount of money then retract your bid after the auction ends.
