Kanye West may have disowned Nike to sign a deal with their competitors instead, but he had one more item in the pipes before that falling out occurred!
The all-red Air Yeezy II “Red October” sneakers were released over the weekend with NO forewarning, and the only clue that the shoes were on sale came in the form of a singular tweet from Nike.
That tweet seemed to be enough, however, and the Red Octobers were sold out within 10 mins!!
The retail price was $245, but if you missed out on the original sale there ARE a few pairs available on eBay — with some going upward of $15,000!!!
While that may sound like a lot of dough, Yeezus' original Air Yeezy 2s fetched a price of $90,000 on eBay in 2012. So judging by that, the red version seems to be far less popular…so far!!
Who knows, maybe once the word gets out more the prices could go up!
