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 auction is a fraud. Nobody purchased these for that amount and nobody would. They are going for $2000 which is bad enough.

Sublimonal messages are easy to view,but hard to understand. Poor blacks spend " 50 billion dollars! " just in the month of December alone.

Who is dumb enough to pay 80 k for some shoes? Those things better make you fly for 80k! WhOever pays 80 k for those should go downtown LA and look at all the homeless people trying to survive! Makes me sick someone is trying to get 80 k for em. You could buy 40 thousand meals for homeless for that, or a nice Mercedes Benz, but shoes? Common now!

i'm a lawyer!    

even if i had it i would never pay $80k on a pair of sneakers... it blows my mind that you would order shoes for the price of a luxury car.
