Kanye West's Nike Air Yeezy II shoes sell for nearly $90k on eBay

By Gina DiFalco,

The Kanye West-designed sneaker, the Nike Air Yeezy II, has sold on eBay for pre-order for nearly $90,000.

The shoes will officially hit stores on June 9 for $245, but one shoe fanatic just couldn’t wait.

According to TMZ, Kim Kardashian’s boyfriend has been wearing the shoes himself for weeks, and fans have taken notice. They have been camping out outside of stores to get their hands on them as well

The last pair or shoes that people went this haywire over were the modernized edition of the Nike Air Jordans, which was last December.

TIME reports that the Nike Air Yeezy first came about in 2009, and this is just the second installment of the sneaker.

Some believe that the $90,000 sale of the shoe was a result of the Watch the Throne rapper himself, in order to create more buzz about it – which seemed to have worked!

This particular shoe has been chalked up to being one of the most highly-anticipated shoes in history. This isn’t West’s first go-around in the fashion world, as he released a line of women’s fashion last year.
