Kanye West fans across the United States and in several other countries lived on the street for a week for their chance to purchase the rapper's new sneakers this weekend at thousands of dollars above the retail price.

The Nike Air Yeezy II sneakers were being sold at a 400 per cent markup on Saturday as thousands of people finally got their chance to buy the footwear after waiting in line for days to take breaks only to shower.

The limited-edition sneakers retailed at $245 quickly sold out in stores after it had been resold on eBay prior to the release date at prices ranging from $6,000 to more than $89,000.

Reactions and Comments Regarding the Sneakers:

Colorado Fails (from Houston): I took a vacation with two friends and lived out of a car for more than a week so that we can buy the sneakers.

Dariante Dubose: was so eager to grab a size nine pair of the sneakers that he stood in line for five days.

Jimmy Works: drove from Baltimore, Maryland to SoHo Nike store to pick a pair he won through raffle draw. He said ‘people want these shoes to the point where they’ll shoot someone for them’.
