Would you pay $15,000 for these kicks designed by Kanye West?

That how much the new sneakers he designed for Nike are going for on Ebay after they sold out in just 11 minutes after their surprise release Sunday.

Kanye has been rocking the Nike Air Yeezy 2 "Red October" shoes for months, but there was no word when they'd be available until the public until Nike suddenly released them with no warning via a Twitter announcement.

Their original retail price was $245, but since they sold out so quickly, people are now pricing them insanely high on Ebay.

The collaboration between the Yeezus rapper and the sneaker company has been a bumpy one. Kim Kardashian's fiance slammed them in November of 2013 for refusing to pay him royalties and parted ways with Nike. He's since inked another deal with Adidas.

Since Kanye's no longer getting any money from the sale of his sneakers, he unsurprisingly made no mention of their release on Twitter.

He did, however, take to Twitter to commemorate the 10 year anniversary of his first album The College Dropout yesterday.

"Ten years later I am still the same kid from Chicago, still dreaming out loud, still banging on the door," he wrote. "The doors may be heavier, but I promise you WE WILL BREAK THEM."
