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.

When rich get 90K they invest it and make more money the build wealth. Poor idiots will waste it on shoes that will be worthless in 10 years.

This is actually really sad. 80k for a pair of sneakers? And camping outside the store for a week? Really? You have nothing better to do,like donate the money if it's obviously not much worth to you? What a great consumer nation we are..

Don't believe everything you see. Many of those bids you see won't actually go through. Some people just randomly bid and will not pay when time comes.
