Six sneaker freakers brave the cold outside Qubic in hope of purchasing a pair of Kanye West's much coveted Nike Air Yeezys that go on sale tomorrow night in Newmarket, Auckland. As I reported yesterday, only 30 pairs are coming in, and each of the first 100 in line get a lottery ticket that gives them a chance to buy a pair. That means that despite being there 24 hours in advance, there's no guarantee that any of those guys will get the shoes! As one of the hopefuls said to me, "well, if I don't get them, at least I can tell my kids I waited all night and all day for a pair of shoes that never came through". Now that's a fan. Once again my main man Simon Hoffman alerted me about the happy campers. Thanks Simon - you're everywhere at the moment... You're like the wind.
I LIKE YOU!
