SALT LAKE CITY — Campers are eagerly awaiting the Kanye West-branded Nike sneaker that is apparently fetching thousands of dollars online.

The hopeful owners of the Nike Air Yeezy 2 have been waiting outside the downtown boutique store FICE since Tuesday for the Saturday morning release.

Each store was given only one pair per size.

“That’s why I’m number one, I had to make sure I got my size. So, I had to make sure I was first,” says Troy Shaw.

FICE co-manager Laura Hadar likens the wait to a “game of survivor” given the limited amount they have to sell.

Hadar says pre-ordered pairs are listed on eBay for up to $14,000. The shoe retails for $245.
