Kanye West has had a pretty successful week, all in all. After headlining at Glastonbury at the weekend, he went on to break retail records with his new shoe design for Adidas — his Yeezy Boost 350 unisex trainers — selling out in all 12 UK-stocking stores and online in a matter of minutes. 

To get their hands on what's probably the most exclusive pair of trainers in the history of the planet, people started queueing outside the respective Adidas stores across the country 48 HOURS before they even went on sale. Now that's what we call dedication. 

But, if you didn't fancy taking a couple of days off work to sit outside your local shopping centre for hours on end, you probably told yourself that if you really, REALLY wanted a pair you could always just check out the situ on eBay. Yes? Well, that's only an option if you've got a few thousand pounds to spare... 

That's right, the kicks that have found their way onto the online auction site have amassed such eye-watering bids, they've left us awe struck. 

Considering the sneaks carried a £150 price-tag, we knew that the savvy shoppers who somehow managed to get their hands on the Yeezy Boosts would cease the opportunity to demand more than the ticket price, but we NEVER expected these sorts of figures... 

Kanye's Yeezy Boost 350 trainers are now commanding a colossal $10,000 on eBay. We're talking £6,400! How cray is that?

Of course, Kanye may have his famous in-laws to thank for the HUGE success of his trainers. In the days running up to the launch, his wife Kim Kardashian, and her half sisters Kendall and Kylie Jenner all took to their Instagram accounts to show off their own Yeezy Boost 350 trainers, which we're sure only helped up the demand for the black and white kicks amongst their die-hard fans. A pretty stellar marketing tactic if you ask us...

So, if you're still dying to call a pair of Yeezy Boost 350s your own, you need to ask yourself what's more important — getting your hands on the sell out trainers or eating for a year. Your call.

Kanye's Yeezy Boost 350 trainers are now selling for upwards of $10,000 dollars
