'Sneakerheads' line up overnight to buy Kanye West's new kicks

Kanye West's latest sneaker collaboration with Adidas went on sale Friday morning and you're unlikely to find a pair left on the shelves if you got up after dawn.

Hundreds of self-proclaimed "sneakerheads" spent the night in downtown Vancouver outside the Adidas store on Granville Street hoping to get their hands on a pair of the new Yeezy Boost 350 V2, which to a non-discerning shoe shopper is simply a black running shoe.

To those in the know, and in line last night, it's an essential part of their personal collection ? or a way to make an easy buck.Tim Angeles, 18, was first in line and said that although he's flat broke, he plans to flip the shoes online. He secured his spot at noon Thursday and camped out until the store opened Friday morning.

According to Angeles, the shoes retail for $336, including tax, but can be sold online for almost twice that. He said he would likely re-sell the shoes on Stock X, an app primarily for selling street wear and sneakers, or on a local Facebook group.

He didn't end up first in line intentionally though; it happened because he couldn't afford a bus ticket home.Angeles said he had enough money after work Thursday for a hot dog and a bus ticket. After he ate the hot dog he realized he didn't have enough cash for public transit, so he borrowed a chair from his downtown employer and decided to make some money with a little sneaker side hustling.

Angeles was joined in line by Jeaoh Lee, 20, who estimated the store had about 80 pairs of shoes in stock. He's lined up at least half-a-dozen times before for previous sneaker launches.

"You can create friends, build up a lot of relationships. It's fun," Lee said about lining up overnight.buy Off White Shoes with best price
