Kanye West's Sneaker Freaks

05 June 2009

When you book time off for your summer holiday, we bet you can't wait to jet off somewhere hot, tropical and relaxing. Imagine spending that week camped outside the Size shoe store in the middle of Covent Garden waiting for the third drop of Kanye West's Nike trainers instead. No, we'd rather not either. But 30-odd insanely eager sneaker freaks have been doing just that,and taken time off work to live rough since Monday for the chance of getting their mitts on the rapper's new designs (and we didn't want to break it to the queue but there's only 27 pairs being delivered tomorrow morning. With a security guard!). We caught up with the first guy in the queue (he'll be guaranteed a pair no doubt) who explained just why he wants these trainers and his survival techniques... if you'd ever want to take any advice that is and do this yourself.
