Kanye West's adidas Yeezy 750 Boost releases worldwide on February 28. After this past weekend's Sadderday launch of struggle, 'heads get another chance to cop the highly sought-after sneaker, which has already fetched upwards of $5,400 on eBay.
The Yeezy Boost will be made available through select Consortium stockists and international adidas flagship stores, but don't automatically assume that this weekend's wider release will make it any easier to get your hands on a pair. Photos of lineups have already started to surface with five days left to go until the launch.
In Germany, a group of sneakerheads are currently lined up outside of The Good Will Out store in Cologne. According to well-known Germany-based sneakerhead sneakerb0b, the line first started on Sunday. The Good Will Out already revealed that it will be releasing 12 pairs: 10 in-store and one each through an in-store and online raffle.
Another lineup has already been formed at the adidas Originals flagship store in London, which will be dropping the Yeezys along with flagship spots in Berlin, Seoul, and Shanghai. Despite adidas' Confirmed app, which was already used in NYC when the Yeezys first released, an adidas rep told Complex that no retail stores will be launching through the app for the upcoming February 28 launch.
At this point, it seems if you're not already in line or have a connect, be prepared to shell out a couple stacks.
UPDATE 2/24/15 at 10:10 a.m. EST:
Welp, adidas UK announced on Twitter this morning that its London flagship store will now be conducting a raffle. While this strategy is definitely better than having to wait in line for nearly an entire week, the 'heads in the photo above just wasted a whole day lining up.
