Sneakerheads Camping Out for Kanye's Air Yeezy

"Sneakerheads" started camping out Thursday for the newest Air Yeezy, designed by hip-hop artist Kanye West.

They"re $300 a pair and don't go on sale until Saturday morning. Kanye has a series of three Air Yeezy (Kanye's nickname is Yeezy) high-tops made by Nike. The first pair came out in early April and this is the release of the second pair. They're black with pink trim.

About a dozen people staked a place in line two days ahead of time outside the UBIQ store at 1509 Walnut Street in Center City.

If you're not into lines or Yeezy's, UBIQ sounds like it's still worth a stop at some point in your life. "Woah Ubiq is the best place to buy "fashion" sneakers like, ever. The vans room upstairs had all sorts of vans era's and authentics i've never seen before. The Nike's downstairs put my spiffy super clean 70 dollar nike dunk high top's to shame." That's Ben's review on yelp.

Last year, dozens of self-described "sneakerheads'' camped out for the Nikes designed by Ahmir "?uestlove'' Thompson, drummer of the Philly band, The Roots.
