Nike launched its limited edition of Nike Air Yeezy II in Hong Kong last night. It was reported people bit for $700,000 HKD in the internet for a pair of the limited edition of Nike Air Yeezy II sneakers. The sale price for each pair is $1999 HKD. Only 100 pairs of the sneakers have been allocated for sale in Hong Kong, but more then 600 people were lining up in the hope that they could purchase a pair of the sneakers. Last year, Nike launched Air Jordan 11 Retro Concord sneakers, it created a lot of chaos resulting in a shooting incident in New Jersey.
A shop in Causeway Bay had been allocated 100 pairs of Nike Air Yeezy II from Nike. The day before its launch, people were already camping outside the shop. Among the potential buyers, many of them are South Asian. At 10am yesterday morning, over 600 people were lining up outside the shop. At one time, police have to be called in to control the crowd. At 11am, the shop assistant handed out the quota chips. 400 chips were distributed, but the two hundred people who didn't get the chips were very angry and started rushing up to the shop front. Fortunately, no one was injured. Those who got the chips had to go back to the shop in the evening for the "lucky draw". At 9pm in the evening, 400 people went back to the shop for the "lucky draw". 100 lucky ones could then purchase the allocated sneakers.
