A pair of preordered Nike Air Yeezy 2 sneakers, designed by Kanye West, sold on EBay for $90,300 on June 6.

It’s an exorbitantly high offer for a pair of shoes that will go on sale on June 9 for $245, even if only 3,000 to 5,000 pairs will be released. The sneakers Wilt Chamberlain wore when he set the NBA’s single-game scoring record fetched a mere $55,000 at a Sotheby’s auction in 2000, Forbes reported.
