Kanye’s megahyped sneaks land tonight; CapHill ground zero for WA

On the way to work this morning (7am) I passed a bunch of college-aged kids camped outside sneakerfreak paradise Goods at 1112 Pike Street. They’ve been waiting since last night for the 12am Saturday release of Kanye West’s limited edition Nike Air Yeezy sneakers. According to the groggy campers, Washington State’s getting just nine pairs and all of them are landing at Goods. Camping all night and day to pay $300 for black high-tops with pink trim? Only in our ‘hood. And of course Manhattan — where kick-crazy kids have been camped out since last weekend, according to some reports. Good luck to the campers!
