Kanye West’s ‘Red October’ Air Yeezy 2’s Are Selling for $6,499 at Walmart
Most people know Walmart for their discounted prices and affordable deals. But now the store with "prices that keep rolling" is selling the Red October Air Yeezy 2's on their online website.
As you can see in the tweet above, there's one pair of “Red October” Air Yeezy 2s available for $6,499.
Considering the retail price of the Red October's is $250, Walmart isn't exactly giving any discounts on this item.
It's because the Yeezys are being sold on Walmart’s ecommerce site, which apparently acts as a proxy, of sorts. The site lists items for sale by retailers other than Walmart. So the sneakers are being sold on the site as if it were being sold on something like eBay.
There's only one pair available and they're a size 8.5.
Twitter reacted in true comedic fashion to the resale sneakers clowning the authenticity of the shoes, Walmart and by default Kanye West himself.
The funniest part is sneakerheads all over the world have been trying to get their hands on Kanye West’s “Red October” Yeezys since 2014 and they’ve just been sitting on the Walmart site this whole time.
And there's a lot of other sneakers available on Walmart.com as well including Jordan's and foamposite's.
