I’m pretty sure, this is the only time you will see THIS amount of men in one place queuing up in such an orderly fashion! And not a girl in sight!
Hundreds of men have been attempting to queue outside Niketown in Oxford Circus since WEDNESDAY for Kanye West’s exclusive trainers, Yeezy 2! A Niketown source told Pappzd:
People were banned from queuing up until a day before the sale. As soon as midnight struck, people began to queue.
The trainers will be on sale tomorrow morning (Saturday 9 June) for just over £200. But get this – people are already putting them up on Ebay as PRE-ORDERS before they’ve even bought a pair in the shop themselves!
They’re being auctioned off for THOUSANDS! These are just trainers. Aren’t we in a recession?!
As usual, Twitterati had something to say about this frenzy!

People are camping outside NikeTown for the Yeezy II's like say Footpatrol & 1948 aren't the only stores in London to release them.

And a passing woman observed:
If you’re only just reading this and you’ve only now decided you want a pair, look at that queue! Is there any point? Really?

As Jessie J would say…. ridiculoso!
