I thought it was Kanye West himself, who visited the store Wood Wood in Copenhagen when I saw the queue in front of the shop in Copenhagen.
But actually it’s just the Kanye West Yeezy sneaker that the rap star has designed, which got 12 boys to queue on the street since Wednesday evening and until tomorrow, Saturday, when the shoes are released. With mattresses and an indomitable desire to get their hands on Adidas and Kanyes’ Yeezy 750 Boost’ sneaker, the boys are on the street for the third day.
It really doesn’t make sense to queue up for so long and definately not for a shoe. Then I checked the retail price and it made less sense – 400$ per pair. Well, then I heard what they could be sold for on eBay and it made a little sense. On eBay auctions, Yeezy 750 Boost shoes are sold for 1.200$-2.000$. If collecting shoes, I guess it makes sense but if they are supposed to be worn, I don’t get it… I can buy a pair of Yeezy sneakers on Aliexpress, not real, but affordable.

Yeezy 750 Boost sneakers are expensive and rare
The boys really need to be in queue to get hold of the Adidas ‘Yeezy 750 Boost’ due to the fact that only 12 pairs are sold in Denmark. Wood Wood sells the 12 copies in Denmark and they are all promised away to the 12 boys in the queue, each must put 400$, to be able to take a pair of Yeezys home.
The shoes also come up for sale on various auction websites, but here the price is expected to be much higher. Fashion Magazine ‘Highsnobiety’ writes that prices on the net come up well over 1000 dollars.
Buy the Yeezy 750 Boost from Aliexpress instead and avoid all the hassle. Most shops have detailed photoes of the replica Yeezy sneakers.
