It only took an hour for Burn Rubber to sell out of its stock of Nike Air Yeezy IIs, the much anticipated shoe designed by Kanye West, even though they were going for $1,000 a pair Saturday.
Burn Rubber was the only store in Royal Oak to get a shipment of around 20 pairs, he said. Some of the shoe enthusiasts lucky enough to snag the Yeezy IIs began camping out in front of the store eight days earlier.
What makes the sneakers so special? The side panels are made out of anaconda textured leather upon which the trademark Nike Swoosh is raised out from the body, the back is molded into what looks like reptilian spikes and the cross strap has similar, smaller spikes on it. They also glow in the dark.
