Our homie, and occasional contributor, Dallas Penn hit the House of Hoops on 34th St. in NYC to holla at some of the folk already lining up to cop a pair of Nike Air Yeezy 2s when they drop this Saturday.  All jokes aside, props to DP for humanizing some of these cats that get clowned mercilessly for their thirsty waiting on line struggle.

But be clear, the hypebeasts have ruined this release for many. The $250 price point is already nutso and the resellers are going to raise the aftermarket cost exponentially (though surely not as high as this $90K eBay f’ery right here). God forbid someone wants to come out of pocket to nab a pair and actually wear them.

Peep photos of Nike Air Yeezy 2 here. Do you think the Nike Air Yeezy 2 is worthy of the hype?
