Limited Edition Kanye West Trainers Snapped Up by Patient Fans

There may still be days to go before they are released, but that hasn't stopped fans from setting up camp to make sure they get a chance to buy the new limited edition pair of trainers by Kanye West.

The black Yeezy Boost 350 Adidas model, designed by the rapper, will be on sale on August 22 at selected stores around the world, including some in London, and the rest of the UK.

These epic queues have formed outside Foot Locker in Oxford Street, meaning some could be waiting three days to own a pair.

The trainers were first released in June and, after quickly selling out, were soon being resold on eBay for up to £400. They were only supposed to cost £150.

There were similar queues back then as shoppers were primed to get their hands on the footwear.

Those unable to join the latest queues in London shared their despair on Twitter.
