Let the sneaker mayhem begin. However, we aren’t talking about Air Jordans this time. Sneakerheads across the nation are preparing a strategy because Kanye West’s Nike Air Yeezy 2 finally has a U.S. release date. The sneakers, designed by Kanye West, will be available at retail stores on June 9.
The shoes will likely retail from $250 to $350 and in limited quantities. (Get ready to gasp) Some independent sneaker websites are already selling pre-orders for as high as $2,400! Yes twenty-four hundred dollars for a pair of kicks! Many sneaker lovers are willing to pay that amount for a pair.
The original Air Yeezy sneakers were released three years ago and caused similar pandemonium. Hundreds of individuals camped outside of shoe stores across the country for a chance to purchase the original Air Yeezy, but the first shipment quickly sold out. That’s when the high in demand shoes began being auctioned and sold online for more than $1,500.
Kanye has done it again.
