This is the shit you bid for when you have a spare 6 figures in the cupboard….
Looks like common sense has gone out the window with the release of pop star Kanye West’s custom design for Nike’s Air Yeezy 2 sneakers as bids as high as $90 300 have been reached on ebay.
The sneakers which normally retail for $245 (that’s $88 755 less than what some fool is willing to pay) are set to be released this upcoming Saturday. That of course hasn’t stopped shoppers desperate for a slice of the good life (whatever that shit means anymore) from camping out sneaker boutiques across the country.
What is peculiar is how the above sneakers are trading at just under $100K when there have been a myriad of exchanges between $2-5,000. Could Kanye West (or someone inside Nike) be bidding for the sneakers at insane prices to generate extra buzz?
The moral: Status counts a whole lot even if you bixches are desperate to deny it…
