According to Alexa.com, one very popular page on the Internet right now is the Adidas Yeezy BOOST by Kanye West page. With Kanye’s Yeezy Boost sneakers selling out in the past and going for up to $20,000 on eBay, as reported by the Inquisitr, it’s no wonder sneaker heads would want their hands on a pair of Yeezy Boost 350 shoes. Whether to wear or save, they likely make a great investment. The Yeezy Boost shoes for sale on eBay right now, sorted by the highest-priced Yeezy Boost shoes shows that $20,000 is still the highest listing for a pair of “Adidas Yeezy 750 Boost Mens Size 11 New DS.”

The Yeezy Boost 750’s design difference can be seen in the above photo from the Associated Press. Big Sean wore a pair of the Adidas Yeezy Boost 750 shoes during a performance at Madison Square Garden. While that was way back on Thursday, February 12, 2015, in New York, the new launch of the tan Yeezy Boost 350 shoes are causing people to wait in line online, hoping to get a chance to buy a pair.

At approximately 10 a.m. ET on Tuesday, December 29, Adidas tweeted about the Yeezy Boost 350 tan version going live.
The Adidas page places people in a virtual line, letting them know that they are waiting for the shoes designed by Kanye, and warns them not to refresh the page. These new Yeezy Boost 350 shoes that have gone on sale are the tan version, not the black version of the Yeezy Boost 350 shoes. The places on Twitter claiming they have a limited quantity of the Yeezy Boost 350 for sale are selling them for $200 as of this writing.
Those who make it past the “waiting in line” message are greeted with a page that tells them no call-in orders are allowed, and that the $199.99 Yeezy Boost 350 shoes are limited to one per customer, and that the sale isn’t finalized until the checkout process is complete and the buyer receives a confirmation email about their Yeezy Boost 350 purchase.

Others are showing photos of the Yeezy Boost 350 shoes in their shopping cart online, and asking others to tweet them if they want the Yeezy Boost 350 shoes — although it’s unclear how someone would be able to transfer the shoes to another person’s online basket. Only giving up the person’s login credentials would seemingly work, but that would then expose payment information to someone else, unless they changed their password prior to buying the Yeezy Boost 350 shoes.

Most folks on Twitter are tweeting about seeing the same “you are waiting for the Yeezy Boost 350” message that others are seeing. Others are tweeting about the shoe being sold out already.
