In insane inevitabilities: Kanye West's latest footwear creation, the Yeezy Boost 350 is already selling on eBay for upwards of $1,000. In case you're quick with math that's about five times the $200 retail value. Is anyone (honestly) surprised? No. After all, Adidas' reserved app, which is meant to
