Are you a sneakerhead sitting on $5,000 that you don’t know how to spend? Good news! This afternoon at 1:00 PM this afternoon Nike announced on Twitter Kanye West’s elusive Air Yeezy II kicks would be on sale in a limited-edition Red October colorway. This caused sneakerheads to freak-the-fuck out, gobbling the entire inventory of the sneakers up in 11 minutes.

Because flipping the hot item du jour on eBay is the American way, a few enterprising individuals are selling their Air Yeezy II Red Octobers on eBay for a Buy It Now price of $5,000. Bids on some auctions are already astronomical for a pair of freakin‘ sneakers that cost $245 through Nike.

Chances the person who spends $5,000 on these kicks will be declined for a mortgage some day? If there’s any universal justice in the world, hopefully.

Next up, Kanye West addias kicks…
