Yeezy boost

Recording artist and fashion designer Kanye West recently came out with a fresh new pair of kicks. The hot new sneaker line is called “Yeezy Boost 350.” The line launched worldwide on Dec. 26, 2015. According to sneakernews.com, the Yeezy 350’s sold out immediately. The shoe officially started being sold in the U.S. at 11 a.m. on Dec. 26. A majority of the sales went to people who had preordered them.

    Originally priced at $200, the Yeezy’s are now going for as much as $2,000 on sites like Amazon and eBay. Many might think, “$2,000? That’s insane!” Others might see it as $2,000 well spent. I personally feel that they are worth the $200. I’d have to agree that $2,000 is way too much money for a pair of shoes. I enjoy the simplistic style of the shoe. What I think is really cool is that not only did Kanye design the Yeezy 350’s, but he wears them. Once they are available in the U.S. again, I fully intend on getting a pair.
