Kanye's new sneaker for Adidas, the Yeezy Boost, debuted in New York last weekend and 9,000 pairs sold out in 10 minutes flat. Soon after, the shoes flooded eBay priced at anywhere from $500 to $5,000, according to CNN. Don't blow your paycheck just yet, though: Kanye has promised over and over that he's working with Adidas to ensure that everyone who wants a pair will get a pair. At regular retail price, the shoes are selling for $350 each.
