So, Kanye West did a collab with Adidas on a shoe called the “Yeezy Boost.” They were extremely limited and you needed to enter a lottery to just have the opportunity to buy them for $200. And they sold out, of course, but now they’re on eBay and they are selling for a lot of money.

How much money, you ask? Well, if you’re a size 11, it can be yours for just under $17,000.

In fact, there are more than 200 listings for this fairly unattractive shoe. Another size 11 is considerably, uh, less at just over $12,400.

Are you a size 5? Well, you can get an even better deal for your small feet, since the shoes are currently going for $3,763. (This is a deal, considering other size 5 shoes are listed for $4,390$4,892 or $5,017.)

Size 8 or 9? You’ll pay a bit more for your slightly larger feet at $5,392.

If you’re a size 7, run don’t walk to this pair for $2,320.

This is crazy, right?

Basically, it is ridiculous to spend $17,000 on a pair of sneakers. If the volume of eBay ads for these things says anything, it’s that they are not unique. Might we suggest a pair of affordable runners and a low-risk mutual fund? Conspicuous consumption is so 2005.
