When I grow up I want to be one of Justin Bieber’s Yeezys.
So, a few days ago, Justin Bieber took off his shoes at a concert in Germany and threw them at the crowd. It sounds mean, until you learn that those shoes were freaking Yeezys!!! I would gladly get smacked in the face with kicks worth more than $500 — if it meant I got to keep ’em.
The left Yeezy, for example, has almost 8,000 followers on Instagram:
While the right Yeezy is currently the subject of a bidding war on German eBay. The single shoe is currently going for 6,500 euros (a little more than 7,400 USD). That’s like a 2600% markup, just for smelling like a Canadian pop star’s feet!
The eBay listing also notes that part of the proceeds will go to charity, so that's nice!!!
