An LA store claiming that these Yeezys are worth 17,000 big ones further proves just how crazy the sneaker market can get. The BOOST 350 V2 is a discarded, presumably one-of-one, ‘Moss’ sample that looks like the predecessor to the ‘Semi Frozen Yellow’ drop, and surfaced in a video featuring LA reseller Urban Necessities.
While many will balk at a Yeezy (a sneaker that is restocking with increasing frequency) costing more than most people’s first cars, the reseller says a buyer has already come forward. The sneaker isn’t listed on the store’s website, so there’s every chance that the hype bug bit one punter hard. And while it sounds like the buyer got the sneakers at a touch below the asking price, that’s still a lot of money for a Yeezy. Looks like we might have to add this one to our list of stupidly expensive sneakers.
