Within minutes, though, Nike sent out second tweet.



"After what seems like a lifetime, the infamous 'Red October' Nike Air Yeezy 2 (were) released today via a Twitter link from Nike Store at 1:00 p.m. EST," wrote Jeffrey Jason, of KicksOnFire.com. "As expected, this Yeezy 2 release sold out in a matter of minutes leaving many sneakerheads jumping for joy! And of course it left tons of sneakerheads furious."

Resale of the sneakers online have been reaching four-figure and even five-figure prices, leaving other sports shoes in the dust.

"The Nike Air Yeezy 2 'Red October' sold for $245 on the Nike.com site," Nike's website said. "Nike has removed the product page completely from their site. Now guess what the Nike Air Yeezy 2 'Red October' is going for on eBay? Offers range from $3,000 to $10,000 for these sneakers. That is quite a premium." 

Upset sneaker enthusiasts took to Twitter to express their disappointment over the way Nike handled the shoe's release.
