The all-black Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 sneakers sold out of stores faster then they arrived, but fans of the shoes can still grab a pair on the resale market. The catch: You may have to shell out as much as $20,000 for the coveted sneaker.
Just two days after the latest collaboration between the Germany-based athletic brand and rap superstar Kanye West hit stores, it has made its way onto online consignment store eBay. The top asking price as of Monday is from seller marviinlopez6, who wants $20,000 for a pair of size 10 shoes.
There is a bit of a dip in price beyond marviinlopez6’s auction, with the next-highest ask coming from seller italianattitude7, who wants $5,000 for a size 8.5.
Although having a starting asking price in the thousands is popular, some sellers have started their auctions at 1 cent, including seller tyle-fensl, who has a size 11.5 for sale on a seven-day auction (with a reserve price, which has not been met as of Monday).
We know of one family that can avoid navigating the resale market. The Kardashian/Jenner clan have already taken to social to show off their pairs.
The shoe — which hit stores Saturday — features an all-black Primeknit upper with dark gray accents, with an all-black outsole that features the brand’s Boost cushioning technology. The shoe’s laces are dark gray with black accents.
The black Yeezy 350 was reservable via Adidas’ mobile app, called Confirmed, from both the Google Play and Apple App stores, in New York, Chicago and Los Angeles.
