A pair of Kanye West’s Red October trainers are currently going on Ebay for £10 million.
The red version of his delayed Air Yeezy 2 shoes were surprise released yesterday (February 9) after Nike announced the news on Twitter. As Vibe reports, the shoes sold out within 11 minutes and pairs are now available on Ebay for way above their selling price of £220.
Kanye West’s relationship with Nike has been complicated, with the rapper announcing a new deal with Adidas after criticising the brand for not pushing to make more.
“I can make music, I can do it, but I shouldn’t be limited to one place of creativity…You guys don’t understand that I did the Yeezys and they eBayed for $90,000 but I didn’t get a call from Nike the next day,” he said in an interview with Zane Lowe.
He subsequently claimed his deal with Adidas would make him “bigger than Walmart”.
