CNN's Erin Burnett reports on the release of Nike's Air Yeezy 2's.
'Sneaker Heads' go bananas for Kanye West's new kicks
By James O'Toole
NEW YORK (CNNMoney) - Thousands of dollars for a pair of sneakers?
That's how much a pair of Kanye West's signature Nikes could pull down in the resale market following their release this weekend - giving new meaning to the phrase "G'd up from the feet up."
Nike's (NKE, Fortune 500) Air Yeezy II's hit stores on Saturday in a limited release, and will retail for $245. While the precise number of pairs available hasn't been revealed, Matt Powell, a footwear analyst with SportsOneSource, estimated that it will be around just 1,000.
"It will be a very, very limited release," Powell said. "That should drive up the resale market significantly."

I would not own that hunk of junk looks like crap, i bet its over 150 buck too lol
Kanyesteins: Who care's if they are a monstrosity; they were designed by a talentless celeb.
They aren't seriously going to make that shoe are they?
I love Nike's but I'm not paying more than MAYBE $110 and thats pushing it. $245 for ONE pair? COME ON!!!!! You have people in this country that can't even find a job and have a degree. I don't see many of those selling. Plus, I wouldn't buy those if they were $45.
I wouldn't call them men.
Camping out to get a pair of shoes? It looks like there are a lot of young men out there that need to get a life.
if you are looking to either buy a car, put a down payment on a house, or pay off your student loans....GET THESE SHOES ASAP!!!...LOL.
Anybody else thing this is funny... you watch a commercial before you watch a commercial
Why? It can't make you run faster or jump higher. It's just a really weird looking shoe.
-I agree with Phearis: "Egads, That Is One Ugly Looking Running Shoe." !!
-Looks like the remnants of the pieces left in the plant plastered together: I bet it's spongy!!
